The inky nemesis continues to wreak havoc. This book does stand-alone, but books 1 and 2 are good listening so I would recommend them regardless. The events in this book take place inside a hospital. The main protagonist is a swat team leader who believes she’s after one or more terrorists loose in the facility. I’ll admit the characters here are not well developed but if you love the combination of action and horror this one’s for you. As for the narration… well there are two major female characters in the story and lots of dialogue so you really have to be able to nail a female voice. Here it was just okay.

If you could sum up The Black: Outbreak in three words, what would they be?
Constant Action Horror
What did you like best about this story?
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
Have you listened to any of Paul E. Cooley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Just as clear and well paced - good enunciation, distinct difference in character voices
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
"Want to" but cannot - although spellbinding need a break from the constant intensity!
Any additional comments?
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.

this one started quicker than the others, probably because by this time I was able to understand more about the it.
Wasn't as good as the first two. Didn't add enough to the world. I was hoping to learn more about the creature, maybe it's origins, but instead it was more or less re-treadng the events of the second book with a different locale.
I'd still highly recommend the first two, narrantion was great.
