    A labyrinth of suspense, knowledge and excitement

    Wow!
    First of all, it is full of suspense!
    The characters alternate in such a way that you are left wondering, who is really the protagonist?
    The scenes evolve rapidly, so that I could not stop thinking of what a wonderful movie it would make.
    The topic is so interesting that you want to read more, and the text is so dense of knowledge that you feel like you should be taking notes.
    Sometimes bold like in the sex scenes, sometimes epic like in the narration of the myths, sometimes raw like in the action scenes, the author keeps a nice balance and takes you around the world physically and emotionally.

    L.O.T.

    This is the best book I've read in a long time. Once I started I couldn't put it down. Dr. Wenzel weaves a magnificent story filled with all the things that make a great adventure- think Richard Preston's Hot Zone meets Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code- only much better!! A must read!

    Up and down, back and forth, in and out.

    Who really cares that they ordered dinner and the details of each dish, especially since it has no relevance at all to the story? How many lectures do you need on how good arabs really are? How often do you want to be told how.bad the Americans are? Do you really want to know the history of every bacteriological outbreak and the definition of every one of them? No? Thats strange because that is how the people in this book converse with one another. When the author steers clear of all of this the book is a good read, unfortunately he weaves in and out of storyteller, encyclopedia, dictionary, lecturer mode throughout the book!! He probably could have cut out about a third of the book as alot of the writing is "landfill" material adding nothing to the story. To bad, like i mentioned, this book had potential. But as it stands its just a plodding, mundane, overly detailed (in all the wrong places) story. I'm glad that this was a free book. I gave one extra star just because of that.

    Interesting read

    The first 100 or so pages were hard to get into but after a while the story was captivating. Good read if you are into infectious diseases and microbiology.

    Pass on this one.

    I read this entire story and found it to have: clunky, expositional dialogue, improbable coincidents, one dimensional characters, etc.

    Pass on this one.

    Pornographic opening paragraph

    Think of all the most skillfull writers in history. Now can you imagine any of them describing a sex scene in the most graphic terms? Dickens, Austen, Shakespeare? Porn is for the incompetant writers.

    Good

    I liked this book but it could have been better. There is a lot of extraneous information and redundancy. The minor characters lacked dimention. However, it was free and worth reading....skw

    For lovers of the medical thriller genre.

    Of its kind, well done. It's the play on medical information and the action that counts, and there's plenty of both. Like Michael Crichton and Robin Cook (Cooke?), the characters are a bit cardboard, which is standard for the genre. An interesting extra is some background regarding the history and relationship of Israel and Palestine giving brief points to ponder and inviting further historical investigation.

    The publisher states this is this author's first novel, WELL DONE! This novel is fast moving and suspenseful. The characters kept my interest and did not know how it was going to end til the end. Would recommend this read to men and women alike. Thanks Richard.

    Couldn't make it past the first paragraph

    It may improve but the first paragraph turned me off the whole book.
