Publisher's Summary

This is how the world ends....
An invisible killer has returned. The last time it raged, upward of 40 million died - in a matter of months. Now it is back, released to prey on an unsuspecting, unprotected world.
The first case appears on a flawless spring morning, initially diagnosed as a common cold - perhaps a mild flu. Then the deaths begin. New York and Florida are quarantined. International travel is halted. A Japanese doomsday cult commits mass suicide, its final mission completed.
Beck Casey, an expert on biological warfare, is called back to his former CIA post to unravel the twisted case... and to discover if a vaccine exists. But Casey's potential allies to save the future are the worst enemies from his past. The Final Epidemic has begun.

A Great Listen!

If you could sum up Final Epidemic in three words, what would they be?

Non-Stop Twists

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes. The cause of the epidemic seemed easy to figure out but who released it was a complete surprise. With all of the twists, you never knew who was going to die next and in a thriller this is always a plus.

Which scene was your favorite?

When they find Beck's daughter and friend and are able to save them.

Good Suspense - Holds Your Attention.

This is not a new storyline but it is well written and has intriguing characters. I bought the Kindle book and got the audio book for $1.99. That is a great way to hear a new series by an author I had not read before. Beck Casey caught my attention and I am starting the next book. Narrator was good too.
