Publisher's Summary

What would happen if a viral agent was released on American soil? How would local agencies react? How would the military respond? What if it was one of their own? Would they own it or attempt to cover it up? If a major operation was jeopardized because of the release, would that alter any of the decisions? A potent viral agent, created to destabilize a region for forces to move in and clean up, is accidentally spilled in a metropolis. Those infected serve only to afflict others through any means.
As forces move in on the beleaguered city, Sergeant Brown has to make his way through roving bands of the infected in order to escape. Will the ring close before he can reach safe grounds or will he and others he finds be added to the final tally?

Any additional comments?

First off let me say I love John Obrien...he is a talented writer, and a very nice man...This was a great premise and shows you how scary the government could get..deceitful and careless...and really cruel! However this book is written in 3rd person...and that ruined it for me...John's other wonderful series is written first person..and its I was disappointed that this book was written in 3rd...and that just does not do it for me...I struggled till about half way through this book and it finally hooked me enough to adjust to the writing style...Most people will love this..but even though the story is completely was not my cup of tea!

Silent But Deadly

I wasn't sure where the story was going at first but I can't wait to continue. At first I thought it was going to be about a couple of cadets trying to get out of an infected town. Then it turned into another plot twist on top of that one and now we see into the mindset of the person responsible for the virus. Then the virus spreads.
Then on top of that one we go to a story about one admitted terrorist (?) just trying to survive after being unfairly blamed for the whole thing going from country to country to country. Then the virus spreads.
Starts out with a lot of action and doesn't stop. Just enough character build to get into the thinking process of the people involved. I really want to know how these stories evolve as I am beginning to care about each one.
Virus versus people versus government versus survival - all good!

Great book

I'm a big fan of John O'Brien's A New World series. For fans of that series I'd say this is similar but has a stronger emphasis on the military side of things. I enjoyed the story. It had great characters and an interesting arc. I recommend.
