Not-too-shabby action/suspense novel masquerading under eco-theme. Interesting writing style. The two different subplots taking place at distinct locales (Galapagos high-action and medical-containment-ward) remained unfortunately pretty distinct, and not really woven together by much plot development, as if Hurwitz glued one action novel and a medical thriller together with some binder twine.
A wee bit of deus-ex-machina and fully anticipated final page twist.
Nevertheless, a very decent read, and couldn't put it down.
I felt like I was reading two different books. The medical thriller part was incomplete and didn't seem to tie onto the rest of the book. The action part was a bit choppy. If you like blood and gore, it's not a bad read. Some likeable people, some not so much. I didn't care for the way it kind of limped to the predictable end.
