After reading Brute Force and Field of Fire, I decided to start with Cameron's book 1. The key characters and their relationships have more definition this way. Good to learn that Quinn earned a Fulbright fellowship, among other credentials. Before I forget, 94% of the way through the kindle version, Quinn grabs a helicopter ride. However, the text suddenly turns: "Mahoney had shown enough forethought to bring his M4 when they'd jumped in the rental car and it hung loaded...." Problems include mode of transportation and a pronoun no where near its noun. Not unique to Cameron, the word ONLY gets misplaced many times. Oh well. The notion that a weaponized virus could threaten the world's population has been documented; Cameron cites Laurie Garret's The Coming Plague as one nonfiction source. Even though the good guys stopped the Pandora threat, the CDC and UN need to be alert. The Epilogue includes a bad guy plotting, thus setting the stage for book 2.
