When a Centers for Disease Control quarantine fails at Ben Taub Hospital, a Houston SWAT Team is sent in to secure the facility. What they find is destruction and death. Trapped in the hospital, cut off from the world, a mysterious voice on the radio is all they have to guide them. They're no longer on a mission to quarantine the remaining inhabitants. Instead, they have to destroy a multiplying menace that could infect the world before the Federal Government enacts a final solution. Outbreak is a standalone, parallel story to both the 2015 Parsec Award Winning Novel The Black and The Black: Arrival. A winning mashup of action and horror, Outbreak is a suspenseful thriller that will keep you guessing at what's around the next corner.

Great Classic Horror Thriller
Constant Action Horror
The use of (spoiler) frequent short plot arcs of quickly developing an individual, interesting character, and then killing him/her. As Paul Cooley says, "We don't believe in happy endings"!Fast paced and not predictable, but nonetheless constant and consistent terror
Just as clear and well paced - good enunciation, distinct difference in character voices
"Want to" but cannot - although spellbinding need a break from the constant intensity!
Excellent narration exclusively by the author himself. Part of an on-going series (3 so far). Each can stand alone but is best that the first one (The Black) is first to give origin story.

The Black is BACK
Yes. I love hearing an audiobook performed by the author because I think it adds a lot to hear exactly how the author envisioned it including what the characters sound like.
Distinctive Character voices
I was exhausted when I finished. The action was intense and I just felt like I was there with them running one minute, holding my breath the next and then fighting for my life. By the time I finished, I just felt completely worn out like the characters.
Although each book in the series gives some background allowing them to be read out of order, I suggest experiencing them in order as it is fun to know more than the characters about what is going on. It's interesting to realize when a character inadvertently dooms themselves by doing what would seem like the logical action, but this creature defies traditional expectations.
