That's when I stopped reading.
From the back flap, I see the author is about my age. Old enough to remember John Glenn - and Neil Armstrong.
While she attempts to make headway with political leaders and control the spread of the infection, an animal rights group known as CHAT or Citizens for Humane Treatment Of Animals attempts to derail her efforts. Spearheading the CHAT movement is president Tom Pollard. When he learns an attempt will be made to eradicate colonies of bats nationwide,Tom seizes the opportunity to put CHAT in the headlines. To the general public CHAT is known for it’s somewhat radical views and protests. But Tom fears something worse than bad publicity,something worse than government interference. He fears a man by the name of Stuart Chalmers.
Bat Out Of Hell takes the reader on a scary ride from the jungles of Indonesia to our back door.
Hot on the heels of last year’s Ebola outbreaks which saturated the local news,this story may hit close to home.
While the concept of an outbreak of this type is a very real threat in this day and age, what’s even scarier are the people who seek to benefit from the misfortune of others like Tom and Stuart.
Alan Gold did a superb job of bringing the reality of an Ebola like virus to the pages of Bat Out Of Hell. In this page turning novel,we’re submersed in the race to discover the cure, we’re frustrated by the political red tape,and we anxiously await the outcome of the eco-terrorists agenda.
While the story does have a few slow moments and a lot of minor characters, it maintains a steady pace. There’s plenty of suspense,a few plot twists,and some poetic justice in Bat Out Of Hell. Classified as an eco-thriller,it definitely lives up to the name.
Bat out Of Hell..it’s not just the bats you have to fear!
We give Bat Out Of Hell 3 out of 5 stars for it’s solid story,well written characters and suspense. While this was my first experience with Alan Gold’s work, I’ll be looking forward to his future projects.
Suggestion: Try not to read on a summer evening on the front porch, your ears will be tuning in to sounds... shivers.
