What's happening in a town in Florida? People and animals are going blind...for no discernible reason. Is it a virus, bacteria, some kind of terrorist attack? 'Sudden Blindness' is a medical mystery, and Greg Didaleusky, the author, shows an impressive knowledge of the technical medical area while solving the puzzle. David and Sarah, a married couple, are main players on the team racing to deal with the disaster. Not least because their son is one of those affected. Enter Russell Patton from Atlanta, an expert recruited to help head up the team. This adds to the tension as a long-ago romantic relationship between him and Sarah now surfaces to cause unneeded dissension. It's fascinating to follow the clues as the team pulls out all the stops, enlisting even the Navy Seals, to finally solve this terrifying problem.
Excellent novel. Suspense, mystery and characters interaction kept my interest throughout the story.
Sudden Blindness caught my interest from the first page of this mystery/suspense novel. The plot of people suddenly going blind without any apparent medical cause collided with secrets between the head of a CDC investigative team and the wife of an ER doctor. I had a hard time putting the book down waiting to see what the next chapter brought. I can't wait for the author's next novel.
