Overview

When a deadly influenza virus threatens all of humankind, can a virologist who encounters many obstacles on his path to a cure be successful, and if so, at what price?

This is a love story . . . a deep love for another human being and a love for saving millions of lives from deadly viruses. Aidan has devoted his life to finding a vaccine for all flu viruses: past, present and future. Along the way he meets Jill, also a virologist, who shares his dedication. They are a good intellectual match and have the same motivator. They continue Aidan's work for an all-inclusive vaccine, but not without many hurdles.

The setting is Chicago that leads the way, as the current influenza reaches apocalyptic proportions. The city comes close to a total shutdown and thousands die. They make the radical decision to move to Tuscany, Italy, where the flu is not as rampant as it is in the States. It is a safer haven in which to continue their Clinical Trials, and they may save their own lives and others. Those destructive microorganisms, one-billionth our size, may have met their match.

    Characters were one dimensional. It was written more like an outline, never really dug deep into the characters feelings or actions.

    Highly ENJOYED

    Fast paced and with true to life characters, saving the world. A good read. This is a great book just to take with you on a trip or to relax in front of the fire on a winter's night. I could not put it down until the end.
