Publisher's Summary

Ebola, Terrorism, and Hope
In 1989 the Ebola virus mutated to into an airborne strain that infected humans for the first time on American soil in Reston, Virginia. Through belated containment efforts and luck, nobody died.
Now, in the remote East African village of Kapchorwa, the Ebola virus has mutated into another airborne strain without losing any of its deadly potency.
In this thriller, terrorists stumble across this new, fully lethal strain and while the world fearfully watches the growing epidemic in West Africa as Sierra Leone goes into country-wide lockdown, only a few Americans are aware of Ebola K and the danger it poses—to be the deadliest pandemic in the history of mankind.
Can they do anything to protect themselves from this killer disease? Can they stop the terrorists?

COULD IT BE AIRBORNE?

IS IT EBOLA?
When this first started out, I thought it was going to be real good. We were even going to get to see what drives a person to become a terrorist. Then after the first six chapters we start getting all these lectures. We learn all the stats on deaths in Africa. Very detailed stats. Americans take a real big hit. We have no worries, especially compared to Africans. We have telethons and think all is well.

Talk about it, Talk About it, Talk About it.
This is advertised as a thriller. I have read a lot of thrillers and this is not a thriller. This almost belongs in Great Courses. The main characters spend a lot to time talking about things. They do a lot more talking then doing. The reader knows that they are dealing with Ebola, yet the characters can't make up there minds. The reader knows it is airborne, but that is also debated by several different people in several different locations. Adair keeps acting like he is building suspense, yet the readers already know, so what is suspenseful? This is more documentary then novel. It is not bad it is just not what I thought I was buying.

The narrator is okay, but the more bored I got with the lack of story, the more the narrator started to get on my nerves. He started to sound very condescending.

- Jim "The Impatient" "My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books."

it is left completely wide-open for the next book

Ebola K, a novel about an outbreak of a particularly violent strain of Ebola in a small village in East Africa. This virus is unlike other strains of Ebola… it is incredibly easily passed between people and it is very deadly. An American is there teaching the poorest of the poor in this small village when the outbreak happens and he and his friend do everything they can to help out the overrun hospital. Austin (the American) calls his friends older brother who happens to be much worse than he could have ever expected. Throw in a terrorist sleeper cell that is now awake and ready to pounce using this deadly Ebola K… this book is a page-burner from start to finish.

The narration, done by Adam Verner is just perfect. He really has a “guy next door” type of voice. And was incredibly interesting to listen to. He, like a good narrator does, added to the story making me happy that I listened to this on audiobook compared to just reading it. The audio quality is perfect—probably studio quality with no errors or issues at all. Since reading this, I have looked for other books read by him (including Ebola K 2).

My biggest complaint, and the only reason that my overall impression of the book is that it just ends. There is no real ending—it is left completely wide-open for the next book. I understand keeping a reading invested and wanting more, but come on! Give me some sort of ending! I am eagerly awaiting the second book right now (it is out in eBook and on Audible).

But, taking away from that disappointment, this may hold a new record for fastest I’ve ever finished an audiobook. It only took two sittings for me, one to 25%, the other the last 75%. It was that interesting to me. Granted, I loved The Hot Zone, and any other book on Ebola (or a similar virus). But Adair really had my attention and he wouldn’t let it go. The way he jumps from person to person (and place to place) kept me glued to my seat (and up too late!)
