Eddie, an Israeli career scientist who is on the never ending quest to cure cancer with the Ebola virus, finds himself and his partner in a precarious situation when they are kidnapped en-route to their destination. Through the drugging and reminiscing, a large portion of this book is a flash back which explains how the pair found themselves in their current predicament. It explains how Eddie was so desperate that he gave himself Ebola and is still recuperating from his recovery.
Eddie and Reuben find themselves held hostage in an almost luxury hotel-like situation, by a nasty couple out to discover the secret to keeping Ebola alive and airborne. Eddie, having had military training in hostage situations, maintains his calm demeanor throughout the drama. Reuben, on the other hand, is not a cool fellow and suffers panic attack after panic attack – thus placing himself at the top of the interrogation list.
We eventually discover that Reuben, is a total dirtbag. His quest for money blinds him totally. Eddie, our protagonist, remains logical and opportunist at every turn. I don’t want to give away too much, but there’s a lot of excitement and a lot of drama!
The author has obviously done copious amounts of ebola research and some serious checking into how scientific research is performed and funded. The facts contained in the book are mind boggling on their own.
If you like thrillers, you will love this book! It’s a really good book and I could not make myself stop reading it. The manipulation, and adventure keeps its readers wanting to know what happens next, after every page turn! Highly recommended!
