This was a satisfying read in many ways... The science/medicine is very well done and gives one the heebie jeebies as you realize how easy something like this could happen in the modern world... It throws a different slant on bio terrorism and fundamentalism and is refreshing by way of not making the nutjobs the cliche extremist force fed to us on a daily basis... The martial aspect, and the way society reacts to worst case scenarios is realistically done... It's not packed w/ constant action but when the action occurs it punctuates the story nicely... Not a lot of deep characters, but those w/ depth are easy to invest in... It moves well and keeps the pages turning... Narration is superb... Only caviats are that the religious aspects are a little hyperbolic, and the overall tone of the book is a little dry for the best of thrillers... That being said, it doesn't overly distract, and the dry tone does fit the atmosphere of the scenario... Worth a credit if you like the thoughtful thriller and doen't need a lotta shoot em up action...
