Medical school student Amanda Garrett and American doctors working secretly in Africa have found a cure for the Ebola and Human Immunodeficiency Viruses.
Leaders of the Islamic State want the cure so they can show the world Islam is a benevolent religion that all Africans should follow.
The President of the United States believes an alleged 30,000-year-old Sub-Saharan religious text called The Book of Catalyst identifies him as being of divine origin.
As Amanda operates her portion of the clandestine CIA Project Nightingale in a Tanzanian orphanage, she is attacked and chased by brutal killers called The Leopard and The Cheetah. Amanda has 48 hours to escape across the Serengeti Plain before the remaining vials of the cure expire.
The Islamic State escalates attacks across the Middle East using freshly converted fighters from Africa. The American President, however, chooses not to deploy sufficient troops to save U.S. Special Forces, including Amanda's husband, assisting in the air war against ISIS.
As Amanda attempts to save the rapidly decomposing formula for the Ebola and HIV cures, she finds herself at the center of a clash between warring media titans, Jonathan Beckwith and Zhor al Rhazziq, who are following her every step toward the Olduvai Gorge, which some scientists claim to be the origin of human life.

Exciting, entertaining and thought-provoking - what more could you ask of a book? The action could be taking place as you read this, The characters are somewhat one-dimensional, but contribute greatly to the mental imagery the story evokes. This is not great literature, but the kind of novel I love to read and share. The story goes by quickly, but leaves the reader with a deep sense of satisfaction and some spiritual things to consider. It is well worth a read.

Amanda Garrett is treating Ebola patients in Tanzania. With help from local helpers Kiram and Mumbato, it seems that they have found a cure for both Ebola and Aids. One vital ingredient is from a secret location which only Kiram and Mumbato know. Amanda wants the cure to be mass produced but cannot until she knows this location. Unfortunately those with evil intent also want to discover the vital ingredient, so Amanda, Kiram and Mumbato are in grave danger. A fast paced adventure – thrilling – well worth the read.

Given To Me For An Honest Review Mortal Threat: ISIS Steals Ebola Cure (Threat Series Book 4) by A.J. Tata will grab you and hold you down on the edge of your seat and  then you'll watch the pages turn and turn and turn some more until you get to the last page. That's when you'll be hearing yourself say,  "WOW!" And as you are reading you'll be running into a few twists and turns just to make your imagination work overtime. Make sure you  have your seatbelt on so you are ready for one ride of your life. As the story is going on, you'll feel as though you are being drawn in and  becoming a part of the story. Students who volunteer with the Project Nightingale group have found a cure for Ebola and HIV.  They are  trying to get it back to civilization but there are those who don't want it to happen.  You will be surprised by the ending.  I recommend this  to everyone especially those who enjoy suspense, action and adventure.  I look for more from A.J. Tata.

Wonderful, another poorly written title about a white person saving people in another country. I can see the appeal, but it comes off as the "White Savior" trope: there's the constant underlying feeling that without her, Africa would go down. Compare that to the parallels today, and it ultimately left a poor taste in my mouth.

I have read all of the books in the Threat series and this is the best one yet! Amanda Garrett is a kick ass heroine who uses her smarts and strength to stay one step ahead of the bad guys as she moves across Africa trying  to meet up with her dad and uncle, the Garrett brother heroes from the previous Threat  books. It is a quick read that you won't want to put down, with topics ripped from the headlines -- a possible cure for HIV/Aids and  Ebola and media moguls trying to manipulate public opinion on Islam and spurring support for radical groups. It all combines  to form an exciting nail-biter that will leave you wanting more! Another excellent read by A J Tata you won't want to miss!!
