Great medical thriller about a very human and likable CDC doctor and a mysterious illness and xenotransplantation. I loved it and am waiting for this authors next novel.
For being the first book he wrote, it was very good.If you like robin cook you like this author too.The book has thrill, hate/love relationships and a deadly virus what more can you ask for.
Smart characters, fast-paced action and a killer disease - a really good first medical novel with a story that pulls you in.
Medical thriller about a new virus strain that can kill everyone one earth.
Strong beginning that denigrates into predictability by the middle but good premise, nice foreshadowing, interesting plot line
A deadly virus first shows up at a Baltimore hospital and later is traced to several group homes for the mentally handicapped... Then the tendrils begin to spread and the CDC and police realize they may be facing the first of a bioterrorist attack - or are they?
Excellent book, mystery and intrigue. A transplant team targeting a specific group of folks, but there is a new virus that is killing them. The CDC is on the trail of an unlikely killer!
things happen behind closed doors.....knowledge is powerful but is it always good????
pretty suspensful as the books progresses
Really scary. A prediction of future? 516 pages of great reading.
Keeps you turning the pages.
This is a bizarre tale of infectious disease and what happens when it hits a group home for the mentally handicapped. It chronicles the doings of CDC Dr. McCormick during his investigation into the unrecognizable outbreak. It's a little over the top since I really didn't expect a CDC officer to be breaking and entering, carrying a gun or evading the police. I did enjoy the encounters with both of his ex-girlfriends and if you discount the outlandish heroics, the story itself was a good one.
loved this book. A hospital thriller and tomorrow's headlines. Highly recommend this one.
It was a good book but not his best. His charterer is a whining brat. Who needs to grow up and except life as it is.
I read part two and it was more of the same, I gave up on them.
"Straight out of today's hospitals and labs--and tomorrow's headlines--comes a scalpel-sharp thriller from medical insider Joshua Spanogle."
