Publisher's Summary

2016 Colorado Humanities for the Book Finalist
2016 Book Pipeline Competition Semifinalist
"A taut, well-paced narrative that not only meets the expectations of the genre, but comes across as stylistically sound."
2015 Silver Medal EVVY award for Literary and Contemporary fiction from Colorado Independent Publishers Association 
A smallpox epidemic begins in a whisper with a single death, and then the name of the victim surfaces: Abdulaziz al-Sherhi. In a nation rich in imagination, this name requires none at all. In the weeks that follow, the epidemic fears crescendo into a national roar. People panic about dying from this horrific terrorist-incited disease and clamor for a vaccination. The federal government lurches along, hurriedly creating more vaccines to meet the demand.
Maggie Rider, a weary road warrior for a high-tech company, submits to the shot only to realize this is no ordinary immunization. Her husband, Eddy, posts his suspicions about this deeply sinister government requirement to his web site.
Now he’s a target.
And Maggie is the bait.
The technology is real. Washington is corrupt. It’s only a matter of time before this isn’t just an intriguing idea for a political thriller.

Great story! I totally thought I would only listen to a chapter or two at a time and hoped to finish in a week or so but I finished in less than 2 days because it really sucked me in. The storyline flow was good and I never felt bored. There were descriptions in all the right places without gumming up the works. The topic was terrifying because I can really see something like this happening. Great narration! No production issues that I heard. I highly recommend this novel!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
