I'm quite the fan of Tim Downs. I really enjoyed the Bug Man novels that he wrote. This book, however, was very hard for me to get through. I thought the plot was a little harder to follow and it took me forever to actually get the book read. Part of this was because of the amount of pages. I wouldn't say it is an easy read at all. When books captivate my attention, I can have them read in 2 days - even with having a toddler and all!! This for me is an ok read; just don't plan on reading it within a short period of time or plan on staying up-all-night to read it! You'd probably fall asleep. :-)
I also loaned this book to a friend and she had a hard time getting through it too.
set post 9/11 there appears to be someone out to infect the USA with plague. a Chinese man appears out of nowhere and tries to help the team and himself for a personal vendetta with the man responsible for this plague.
this book has many twists and turns. some believeable some not. but over all a good read
This is my first read with this author and I was greatly suprised.
The story centers around 3 main characters. Two were married at one time and now
are forced to work together to find the man the 3rd character is hunting down.
No sappy romance, very detailed information on past plaques and so interesting I couldn't put it down.
If you like suspense, this one is it.
I am a fan of Tim Downs or Bugman books. This only has a cameo of the bugman but has another endearing character fully worth reading.
I only have one criticism of the book. It was a real slow starter. I think it took me a good 150 pages before it grabbed me. From there on it was a good read. I found the characters and lessons learned to be well worth the read.
This was a very interesting book to read....I love mysteries that keep me turning the pages. It did not get as scary as I thought it would, but that's okay.
Plague Maker holds its own next to Crichton or Clancy. A suspense thriller set in current time, New York City...4th of July. Will the beginning of the fireworks show mark the beginning of the end? Bioterrorism with a twist...and a definitely surprise ending. A fresh story, based on actual happenings.
Loved this book. It was well-researched, well-written and a great read. I'm definitely going to be looking for other books by this author.
Great book about one man's quest to stop the release of a deadly plague over NYC.
This was a wonderful book... I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone that asked about it... It had a thrilling plot and the characters were so well developed that you began to feel like you knew them... This book was a page turner and keep me up late into ungodly hours of the night... definately a wonderful read!
didn't want to read about plague or disease especially for 500 pages!
