A second plus for the author is premise of the book. He set it during the storm of events in 2014 that led to the biggest Ebola outbreak the world had ever seen. In graduate school I wrote a paper on viral hemorrhagic fevers used as weapons of mass destruction. This book had a different take on that same idea that I hadn't even thought of. It's very haunting to sit back and think about. Any book that can make a reader sit back and say "oh my, that could actually happen" gets another check in the plus column for me.
Now, onto the cliffhanger. Yes, this was a free book. I think it's a brilliant marketing strategy by authors who have to change the way they do business in an increasingly paperless "E" world where their work is put on torrent sites for people to trade free of charge. Offer the first book for free, get people on the hook and if they like it they will buy the subsequent works. Honestly I do not see the problem with throwing an author a couple bucks for a book that you're enjoying. Authors are not rich people. The follow up books are also available in the Kindle Owners Lending Library if you have Prime or through Kindle Unlimited if you pay for that service. If you're on the fence about reading this book because there's a cliffhanger; just read it. You'll be happy that you did.
Sierra Leone. The Ebola virus has mutated into an airborne strain which is deadly to whomever might cross its pass.
Rashid (Arabic, Austin’s BMF, counseling partner) drove Austin to see Isaac Luwum (sponsor).
He & his 2 roommates were not home.
What were Salim Pitafi & Jalal discussing?
Austin was at awe of the 100 or so patients that Dr. Littlefield (US), Dr. Ruhindi (Uganda), & Nurse Mary-Mary-Margaret were taking care of in the make-shift hospital.
Benoit, & Margaux were victims to the deadly Ebola virus. Dr. Ruhindi succumb to it also.
Rashid might not make it either.
Najid Almasi (Rashid’s older brother) was on his way.
Dr. Dante Giovanni & Dr. Kassis were also helping out.
What were Christoph Degen & Najid Almasi (Rashid’s brother) discussing?
Emmanuel Muhangi had found Austin face down in his coffee bean field.
Dr. Kassis was inducing the vaccine into Rashid Almasi.
Who will die & who will survive?
I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.
A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written Ebola thriller book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great Ebola thriller movie, an animated cartoon or better yet a mini TV series. A very easy rating of 5 stars.

Bobby Adair's first installment in this series has the virtues of immediacy without the failings, e.g. the action (with the stated exception of issues related to airborne characteristics) tracks the virus as close to real time as possible; it does not - at least from my perspective - portray a situation that will have readers looking back on this ebola outbreak as over-dramatized by the author.
We are in the midst of frightening times with the virus. EBOLA may or may not emerge as the epidemic of the 21st century but it could go the way Adair indicates. The fidelity to factual material about ebola as well as other viruses such as Marburg is well-researched and offered a learning experience as well as a very good read. I was both edified and entertained while enjoying an approach that was geared to readers who were looking for informative contemporary material without being bludgeoned by the enormity of it all.
Without getting into the dread "spoilers" let me suggest that the development of characters is also a strong point. There are good guys destined (I hope) for survival, bad guys who will suffer and die, and a few drifters trying to cope with their own foibles who might come out well or badly in the end.
I will definitely purchase the next two books in the EBOLA series and recommend that you do the same after reading Adair's first volume. I respect the author's willingness to gamble on his talents and hope he will succeed, both critically and financially.
