Yikes—This is one of those books where you can almost imagine it really happening. The thought scared me to death! Imagine a microbiologist who is also a terrorist who has a vendetta against America and he is about to unleash a genetically engineered FATAL virus which is airborne in the United States. All the directors of the company he is hiding in are killed in an airplane accident and a CEO has to be found quickly. Enter Richard Wainwright-a brilliant CEO who can take over a company even temporarily-BUT-he is hands on and intuits that something is not right. There are many twists and turns in this novel and one of the twists at the end I didn’t see coming.
If you like science fiction (which could actually happen) and a fast paced book—this one is for you. I highly recommend you read it!!
About the Book:
Deep in the secret recesses of a Cold War lab, the Russians created tons of deadly bio-weapons. Now, decades later, a protege of that Russian research is about to release weaponized Ebola into the heart of the South's most iconic city: Atlanta, where the symbols of American "decadence" range from a happily diverse population to the Coca-Cola museum and CNN headquarters.
A preliminary test of the horrifying virus demonstrates the unspeakable suffering of its victims--and alerts the Centers for Disease Control that a terrible pandemic is in the making. CDC Virologist Dr. Dwight Butler begins a frantic effort to track down the source of the virus before it's too late.
For new BioDawn CEO Richard Wainwright, it quickly becomes clear that the "accidental" plane crash that killed the pharmaceutical company's entire executive hierarchy may have some connection to the evolving threat. Suddenly, Richard is being stalked by a hit woman. He and Butler join forces to find the lone terrorist at the center of a plan that could unleash the Black Plague of the 21st century.
