Ok, ever since I saw that movie "OutBreak" Y'all remember that movie... with that little ugly monkey that came "thisclose" to wiping our butts out of existence? Yeah that movie. Well ever since then anything that's Bioterror related, anything with the C.D.C stamp on it, causes me to break out into a cold sweat. Within good reason. I'm sure you understand. So it's without question that this book had me going bat s&$# bonkers while reading it.
The Bioterror plot is what kept & held my attention. Had me captivated & scared. Very, VERY intense. Lots of twists & turns & shock factor reveals.
The life of the family surrounding the main characters & their plights, is what added a little seasoning to this story as well. It was interesting, but it also had me doing this a few times...
But for most of the novel I was so scared & eager to know what was going to happen, that I was just looking like this...
Yes, yes, YES... I would recommend this read.
The story involves bioterrorism and the Callahan family of geniuses - well, except perhaps for one son, who narrates the story. Apparently, when the IQ numbers were being handed out to the family he got short shrift, although he doesn't seem to be seriously lacking in the brains department. When a rotting corpse in a swanky hotel turns out to be infused with a highly contagious strain of something unknown, the parents head up the crisis response team trying to identify (and thus find an antidote for) what ailed the body before it turns into an epidemic of major proportions. All three of their children - a daughter and another son who's more than a little quirky - get involved to one extent or another, as do others at the hoity-toity school for the gifted all three kids attend. Add in the fact that the parents are sexoholics supposedly in recovery, and there's plenty of fodder for kinks and twists.
Everything manages to get resolved - well, almost. This is, by the author's own admission, the first in a series; no word as of this writing when Book #2 will be released, but suffice it to say there's a need. So if you're a person who must have every single detail neatened and tidied at the end, this might not be the book for you. As for me, I'm looking forward to the next installment. I've got my suspicions as to where things are headed, but I'm not telling!
The story was engaging, and I kept wanting to read more so I could find out what was going to happen. It was interesting to see how everything tied together. I was also curious to see how this threesome would develop! The author uses a casual writing style, so it was an easy (and quick) read.
I highly recommend this book, and I'm looking forward to the continuation of the series!
