Another good thriller from Preston/Child. I always enjoy their books and this one is no exception. This is a combination sci-fi/thriller/western. It includes elements of all of these genres including the main story of the development of a way to change the human genome to eliminate the possibility of getting the flu. Well, this is all good, right? But along the way a nasty mutant flu virus is manufactured that could wipe out mankind (shades of The Stand by Stephen King). This virus came about through a corporation, GeneDyne that also developed an artificial blood called PurBlood (shades of True Blood?). Thrown in with this is a chase across the New Mexican desert and a possible lost treasure. Overall, I would recommend this one.

This book was an interesting view on biological warfar and was pretty detailed in the science behind the story. Unfortunately, that detail often made for a bit of a confusing read.

Still, a very enjoyable book!
