Publisher's Summary

In this sequel to Pulse, a genetic disease known as Brugada Syndrome kills its victims without warning, without symptom. When the president of the United States falls victim to a weaponized and contagious strain of the disease, the Chess Team - King, Queen, Rook, Knight, and Bishop - are assigned to protect Sara Fogg, a CDC detective, as she journeys to the source of the new strain: the Annamite Mountains in Vietnam.
Surrounded by Vietnam War-era landmines, harsh terrain, and more than one military force not happy about the return of American boots to the Ho Chi Minh trail, the fight for survival becomes a grueling battle in the humid jungle.
Pursued by VPLA Death Volunteers, Vietnam's Special Forces unit, the teams flight through a maze of archaic ruins reveals an ancient secret...a primal secret that may stop the disease from sweeping the globe, even as it threatens both the mission and their lives.

Critic Reviews

"Intense and full of riveting plot twists, it is Robinson’s best book yet, and it should secure a place for the Chess Team on the A-list of thriller fans who like the over-the-top style of James Rollins and Matthew Reilly.” (Booklist)
"If you like thrillers original, unpredictable, and chock-full of action, you are going to love Jeremy Robinson's Chess Team. Instinct riveted me to my chair." (Stephen Coonts)

Man-Apes and a new ally

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have enjoyed not only the book but all of the "Chess Team" novels. I would recommend this and the other books to anyone who like Special Force/Super Solider and/or Science Fiction books. This book blends the Super Soldier and the Sciencie Science Fiction genres to create a well developed story and characters.

Who was your favorite character and why?

King-He is the lead and is trying to deal with family issues on top of heading up an elite super soldier force all at the same time. He is Rambo and Bill Cosby's love child.

What about Jeffrey Kafer’s performance did you like?

Kafer brought an easy listening style to a rapid action sequenced and multi-arena story lined book. He had to make each character as well as each storyline separate and distinguishable at the same time since at some parts of the book all the story lines and characters were happening/talking over each other.
