Overview

A Nook Book Top 50! (Dec 2013 and July 2014)

A rise in stroke-like cases has CDC analyst Mike Shafer on alert. Patients in every demographic in the Great Plains area, from toddlers to healthy adults to the elderly, are succumbing to rapid deterioration - and death.

Veterinarian Donna Bailey, meanwhile, is dealing with an outbreak of her own. It looks like mad cow disease. But to be affecting so many species? Impossible.

Whatever it is, it's spreading. Fast.

As state and federal agencies race to contain the growing threats, Mike and Donna's searches for Patient Zero intersect at a big-game compound in a remote corner of North Dakota. There they find their answer buried in a secret thought extinct for 10,000 years. A secret entrepreneur Walt Thurman will kill to protect.

But even if Mike and Donna can escape the compound with the secret of Sector C, it may already be too late.

Because after today, extinct no longer means forever.

    This is the first book I have read by this author. It will not be the last.

    Reviewed by Anne B. for Readers Favorite

    "Sector C" by Phoenix Sullivan begins with a few sick animals but soon extends to the local population. The symptoms were flu-like but the prognosis was death. Mike Shafer, CDC Demographic Statistician, noticed an increase in deaths in the Great Plains. He traveled to North Dakota to investigate why healthy toddlers, children, adults and the elderly were succumbing. Donna Bailey, local vet, was puzzled and deeply disturbed by the numbers of livestock and other animals suffering and dying from a disease that seemed similar to mad cow disease. She and Shafer join forces in their investigation. The clues lead to Triple E Enterprises, a corporation that breeds exotic animals. But is that all they do? Is genetic engineering playing God? Has Triple E Enterprise opened Pandora's Box?

    Phoenix Sullivan offers readers a thriller plot that could have been ripped from the headlines of today's media. The author skillfully creates a sense of suspense that grows to a sense of terror as our main characters take on a corporation based on greed, conspiracy and betrayal. Both Donna and Mike are interesting characters that work well together. It was fun watching their romance slowly blossom. The author stirred my emotions with all the tragic and senseless deaths. It would not surprise me to see something similar to this in the headlines at any time. Greed knows no boundaries. This is the first book I have read by this author. It will not be the last.

    Wow! Amazing plot, great characters and so realistic you want to check the news to see if this happened. I don't think reviews should give away the story, so I'll just say this book doesn't disappoint. Start it on the weekend or you might have to call in sick...I couldn't put it down until I finished the last page. This author is definitely on my watch list. Jp

    An excellent story. Characters quite human.

    The author is a new one to me, but the quality of her writing is enough to investigate her other works. A good drama story without being sloppy or maudlin.

    This is a very good techno-thriller. It's set in the near future. It's fast paced and very well researched. I'd recommend it to fans of Tom Clancy.

    Really enjoyed this book.  The premise is too close to reality to not be terrifying. Starts out with a 
    lot of medical info. Don't be put off by that it only last a few pages and you don't need to understand it to 
    understand what is happening.

    Have you ever wondered what would happen if we suffered a countr

    Have you ever wondered what would happen if we suffered a country or worldwide lethal pandemic? While we’ve had our share of SARS, Mad Cow, and even Bird Flu, those virus’ were contained relatively quickly—but what if it was an even higher scale of outbreak? Sector C takes a look at how the government would and could respond should an outbreak like SARS or Mad Cow happen on a much higher level, and let me tell you, it isn’t pretty—though I’m sure it’s more realistic than we’d like to admit. I was appalled by the situations and reactions of some characters in this novel, but realistically it calls into question the philosophical debate of the greater good. Is it better to let a limited number suffer for the greater good, or should all suffer? Sullivan looks at this question as her riveting novel unfolds, and while it isn’t a pretty picture, it is definitely one to make readers really think.

    This is a very well-written novel that takes a look at cloning. It’s intense and very interesting–both the situations and the characters kept me glued to the pages, and I highly enjoyed it.

    The novel follows different characters as it unfolds—Donna the rural vet, Mike the CDC analyst, and the workers at Triple E—allowing readers to gain omniscient insight into everything that is happening across the spectrum as a rash of animals and people begin to show symptoms of stroke… ultimately leading to their death. Though it sounds scientific in nature, and it is, Sector C is easy to follow and I found myself highly interested in all the characters and the situations they found themselves in. Sullivan does a great job explaining everything, but not boring readers with scientific data or jargon, which was much appreciated. I highly suggest giving this novel a read.
