Start this book in different spots and you may wonder what this book is about. You might think it is a western, or a story about mad scientists, or the evils of genetic engineering, or about cyber-space. It is about all these things and I thought the authors did an excellent job of putting it all together. I liked most of it and I believe there is something in here for everyone. I also enjoyed that they kept you guessing on who the bad guys where. There is intelligent conversation and there is suspense and action.

While this is only the second Preston/Child novel I have listened to, it is quite good. Following the harrowing action of Guy Carson trying to make "X-Flu" safe while people around him die or become deranged, Preston and Child always seem to get the details right enough to make you understand why this is a desperate time. If for no other reason than to argue bio-ethics in a fictional setting, this is a wise choice for the average audio-book listener. My only drawback is that it is 15 hours long and you are wondering who will be left at the end of 15 hours from this dread virus.
A+ for effort and B for the voices used, but hey, we can't get perfection every time!

I have not listened to a Douglas Preston/ Lincoln Child Book yet that i have not enjoyed. Great to while away the time, not particularly taxing.I would recommend all of them .
