Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a classic Sci-Fi biological outbreak story. Dr. Peter Maryk, who has a superhuman immune system, and Dr. Stephen Pearse are rivals as well as partners in developing a synthetic human blood. They are called to the Congo to help with what appears to be a smallpox outbreak. It turns out to be a new virus that is extremely lethal. This action packed thriller takes place in the near future (2010-2016) and is not beyond believability. Well worth the read! I happened to listen to the audio version - Gordon Thomson is excellent in his interpretation. I will be picking up the book to read it - I am sure I missed some nuances while driving on the PA Turnpike!
