Publisher's Summary

Fast-paced plot driven by the threat of a world-wide viral pandemic, an underlying suggestion of government evil, and a pervading sense that all is not what it appears to be. This is a great listen filled with suspense as our central character races with time to perfect an anti-virus in his top-security lab near the nation's capital, all the while uncovering startling secrets about his surroundings, his work, political and scientific history, and even his family-including his brilliant and sexy wife Dara.
This paranormal thriller takes on an eerie, gothic tone as Dr. Collin De Gise-a youthful Nobel Prize Laureate and ex-Gulf War Two commando-faces down the dangerous virus, clashes with high-level government figures in Washington DC, and battles to unravel the mystery of a sinister presence behind it all. Great suspense, an occult mystery that's refreshingly different, an conspiracy thriller with a chilling surprise ending that leaves you with the aura that maybe something like this isn't so incredible after all. It all seems hardly less normal than the dark turn that our turbulent society seems to be taking.

Loved it!

Where does Subversion rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is one of the best.

What did you like best about this story?

The voice of the reader, the main character and the chilling surprises.

What does Paul J. McSorley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His voice is fantastic and it fits the story, adding to it. His voice has a very nice quality to it.

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

Yes! I laughed and cried. It does keep you listening, because it is so interesting.

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend it. The main character—Collin—is mesmerizing and changes as the story progresses. I love that, and I love the surprises at the climax and the strong women (good and evil) characters. Even though technically supernatural, the storyline seems frightfully real as though it could really happen. Look at what’s going on today, and you kind of wonder. The author’s short story, “Lonely Pines,” has a similar eerie feel. I’d buy more, maybe even in a short novel form—five stars plus!

Wonderful paranormal thriller

This is book is technically about a threat of a world wide viral pandemic, but there is a lot more to this book. It follows along with the main character Collin, he is a scientist trying to come up with a anti-virus to stop the pandemic before it spreads. This story intertwines between past events and the present time. As the story goes along with all of the twists and turns, you don't know who you can trust anymore and you find out what the real anti-virus project is about. The fast pace and lots of twists and turns does an excellent job of drawing you in.

The narrator did a wonderful job. He is easy to listen to and did a great job of making sure everyone had a very distinct voice.
