The Influenza Bomb by Paul McCusker and Walt Larimore M.D.
Review by Fred St Laurent
We first met Mark Carlson and the TSI team (Time Scene Investigators) in the Gabon Virus.
If you haven’t read this prequel to the Influenza Bomb, stop, step away from the Bomb book and click on the link below to order this a fast paced thriller. That however is an entirely different review.
Assuming now that you are up to speed and have invested a sleepless night blistering through the pages of the Gabon Virus, let me fill you in about the treat in store for you hot from the word processors of Paul McCusker and Walt Larimore M.D.
The TSI Team and the WHO (World Health Organization) still haven’t fully recovered from their wrenching battle with the diabolical Return to Earth terrorist organization, whose goal is to eliminate all human life on the planet, except for maybe themselves.
Susan Hutchinson, with WHO is called to Siberia to deal with another illness that has begun killing thousands, suddenly, by what is soon identified as terrorist attack with global, pandemic repercussions.
Personally, I enjoyed this book as much just as the first in the series, and I couldn’t put it down for long. It is hard charging and suspense filled with characters that have depth that you care about.
Obviously there is a Time Scene involved with the story, and in this case we get to travel back to WWI on through WWII, where the Nazi leaders were experimenting with and launching germ warfare attacks against the Allied Armies.
The historic recreations are realistic. You find yourself running to the computer to look up aspects. It is a fascinating work of fiction that involves Nazi hideouts, dastardly villains and new technology taken to frightening levels of abuse. I loved it! You will too.
