The unknown virus kills in four days. By the time the first bodies are found, it’s too late. Thousands are already sick. Already dying.
Supermarket shelves go bare, police roadblocks are set up, and people disappear—some fleeing the illness, others quietly suffering behind locked doors. Dennis Jensen fears that his family will be next. They break quarantine to seek safety in an isolated cabin high in the hills.
Dr. Michael Beck of the Centers for Disease Control is one of the world’s premier epidemiologists. This new virus is right up his alley. But it’s moving so fast . . . . Other countries are trying desperately to keep the infection out, even threatening to blow American passenger planes out of the sky.
Together with Cara Porter, his goth-punk assistant, Beck drives into the heart of the seething “hot zone,” searching for answers. Is the disease natural or man-made? Is it something that escaped from a research lab or is it a deliberate terrorist attack?
This book started off really cool but around page 100, I was super bored.
The author used the real names of President Obama and other cabinet members and that was really when I lost my interest. I wasn’t convinced with the concept and I didn’t buy the symptoms of the “Gemini Virus”. And I really couldn’t have cared less about the characters. I wasn’t really into the writing style. Personally, I thought it was flat and boring.
I wish I could say this book was better but I just didn’t care about anything in this book.
