About The Book:
Scientists James Logan and his wife, Linda, have their dream careers at the world’s leading biotech company, GeneFirm, Inc. But their happiness is interrupted by a devastating bioterrorist attack: a deadly superflu that quickly becomes a global pandemic. The GeneFirm complex goes into lockdown and Linda’s research team is sent to high-security underground labs to develop a vaccine. 

Above ground, James learns that GeneFirm security has been breached and Linda is in danger. To save her he must confront a desperate terrorist, armed government agents, and an invisible killer: Virus Thirteen.

Lynda's Review:
In view of recent legislation in the medical care arena, the ever-present anxiety over mutated viruses and the like, and the absolute knowledge that evil intent will always accelerate the worst situation, this story is timely. And if there weren't already enough pandemonium, that in itself, adds another layer of looming tension. Well written characters made me want to either help the good guys or hide from the troublemakers.
