Loved it! It keeps your heart racing fast and you can't put it down, and it's also educational, I learned a good deal about dangerous viruses and how relatively simple it really is for them to spread all around the world. Great read, highly recommended!

This is a creepy book that proves that truth can really be more scarier than fiction. It will, I guarantee, make you think about that guy sneezing in front of you. His other book The Cobra Event is as equally good.

Wonderful book! I couldn't wait to get home at night and see what was next! Fast read - and creepier because it really happened. Shows that germ warfare agents CAN get out into the population......and have!

This is a great read, but it will make you wonder how many times this has happened in the U.S. and in other countries and we "little" people never hear about it.

It is facinating, but on the grusome side.

Timeless terror. I was scared in the 1990's the first time I read it. Then came Anthrax in 2001. Then Mad Cow Disease. Now Swine Flu.

This book demontrates that very powerful, deadly viruses exist that we don't even know about yet and could be transmitted at any time. A must read.
