Publisher's Summary

New from the Author of White Plague
Marine doctor and bioterror expert Joe Rush returns in an electrifying new arctic adventure in which an apocalyptic plague threatens all of humanity....

When authorities in Alaska receive a disturbing call from a teenage girl, their investigation leads them to discover an entire family of researchers dead. Joe Rush is called to help examine the bodies. On the surface it looks like a brutal murder/suicide. But the situation is nowhere near that simple - nor is it over.
Upon closer investigation, Rush discovers the terrifying truth. The research team has fallen victim to something that seems impossible at first, yet the evidence looks undeniable in the lab. Now the danger may threaten thousands more.
Unfortunately he's not the only one with knowledge of the looming disaster. The army has cordoned off part of Alaska, and Rush soon finds himself the target of trained killers. Someone suspects Rush of betraying his country. To save countless lives - starting with his own - Rush must uncover the answers hidden in the Arctic. The question is, will he find them in time?

Rush/Abel/Porter a kick butt combination!

What made the experience of listening to Protocol Zero the most enjoyable?

Ray Porter! What more can I say but that RP's laconic delivery, amazing dialects and pacing are a true delight and make the listening experience something to look forward to daily.

That said, the character, and the creativity of Abel are equally refreshing and worth while.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Protocol Zero?

The epilogue is both justified and juicy!

Have you listened to any of Ray Porter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, as many as I can, and it is stunning EVERYTIME. He owns Joe Rush, and is a remarkable narrator. This offering qualifies as one of his very best.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh yes, as Rush's attitude is frequently worth a LOL or 3.

Any additional comments?

This is not a book for the squeamish or someone who prefers non-violence in their books. It does require some leaps of faith as it regards to US government conspiracies and coverups as well. On balance, it is very very listenable and definitely worth the credit.

Great Read!

I quickly became a Joe Rush fan with "White Plague".. This one, however, was twice as well written and read and I am now officially obsessed.. The mix of drama, intrigue, emotion all brought to life by the absolute GREATEST narrator in the world, Ray Porter... In my honest opinion, there wasn't anything about this book that I would change... Well, there is ONE thing but I'll read further reviews after mine to see if anyone else agrees... I can only hope and pray that James Abel continues to write this series! Either way it has been an awesome journey!
