"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

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.
ADAM VERNER DOES VOICES! Sorry. I had to get that out of the way. I was maybe a little TOO pleased when he started doing accents and changing the tone of his voice to differentiate characters. A melodic, pleasant voice, I quite enjoyed his narration. Clear spoken, he's another to keep an ear out for.
Overall, great experience, as expected!

However, this is a thriller, with, I think two more books to go, so don't get it if you don't like cliffhanger endings (tired of reading reviews by people who don't do their homework to find out if the book is a stand alone, or part of a group of books to be released at later dates and then downgrading the author for it!). No problem for me, the next book is already out and I have 500 more great books to occupy me until the final book comes out.
I am going to try to write this with no spoilers and still make you want to read it. It reads like a movie playing in your head. Easy to follow, even though you'll be reading at your fastest pace. Terrorism at it's worst. The American government moving at the usual snail's pace to address the problem. It is basically a set up the story book. We are introduced to the main characters and some background information is provided on them so we get to know them. I will review the next book and let you know if the breakneck pace and all around good quality continues. But as of now, I am ending this review and getting the next book. I can't recommend it as a whole, until I've read the entire set of books. I hope the rest of the books are as excellent as this one was!
That out of the way, this was a decent afternoon thriller. If you like mixing current events with some dubious yet in theory, plausible, medical science, grab a copy of this book! It is currently free if you subscribe to Kindle Unlimited. I was impressed enough by Mr. Adair to grab another couple of his novels.
