Rolling over in his sweat-drenched sleeping bag, he stared out through the mesh flap of his nylon mountain tent, hearing the sounds of the tropical rain forest mixed with the noises of the awakening. A slight breeze brought the warm, pungent odor of cow dung permeated with the acrid aroma of cooking fires. High above him he caught glimpses of monkeys skittering through the lush vegetation that shielded the sky from his view. He had slept fitfully, and as he pulled himself upright, he was unsteady and weak.

Robin Cook has don e it again with this "nail biter" , imagine the potential of a horrendis virus on the loose here in the U.S. We read about these things happening in uindeveloped countries, but not here. Well it's possible and were not for the dedication of Marissa Bluminthal a virologist at the CDC the unthinkablle could happen. This is a real nail biter, a must read.

I usually love Robin Cook books but this one didn't even seem like his writing. And as for the mystery - I had it figured out by the second chapter. At least it was a quick read.

After the recent Ebola outbreaks in Africa and entry of infected patients into our hospitals, I decided to read this book, which I had done some 15 years ago. A good story emphasizing the devastation this disease could bring to a city or country. It is very well written and quite factual.

Robin Cook is one of my favorite Sci Fi thriller writers. He is a medical doctor, and his novels are scientifically accurate.
  • Leceri
This book was informative, exciting and scary. It was a real page Turner especially at the end.
  • Gardall
Good, but I really like Robin Cook. Fun.
  • Faehn
I thought this was a really fantastic book and it is now my favorite one that I have read by Dr. Cook. I felt like I was reading a true story and what a scary prospect that would be! Really well done and I couldn't put it down! I will definitely be reading more of his books!
Poorly written- shoddy pacing and disastrous character relations. The ending was hastily resolved and the interpersonal resolutions at the end were unrealistic and disappointing. One of his worst works from a writing perspective albeit interesting and mildly illuminating subject matter.
