I can see this book being turned into a miniseries on HBO. This book is unlike anything I have read (listen to). There is constant action that keeps you at the edge of your chair gasping in shock.
The book follows a husband and wife trying to tell the world of a horrific virus spreading through America. No one listens at first then the outbreak begins. The virus is so frightening it promotes paranoia and fear. At first people believe it is psychological but as scientist begin to discover a virus in the brain all hell breaks out. Society collapses and gruesome murder and death is widespread. You can try to run for your life but eventually the noids will find you. Awesome book!

Ammon's horn is bioterrorism with a twist. Rather than a deadly disease that kills you, infection causes paranoia and the victims kill other people. A news person from a tabloidly media outlet and her police profiler partner, piece the mystery together only to be discredited by the government. When the secret finally gets out, they embark on an adventure cross country for eventual public redemption.
The story is essentially present day with sci-fi elements limited to the unique biological weapon. The story itself is crudely constructed. A massive info dump concerning the origin of the agent doesn't occur until about 2/3 into the tale. The government is much too efficient at covering up the problem since only one scientist is able to figure it out. Also strange is why North Korea becomes the epicenter of both nuclear war and a cure for the disease. The final plot twist at the end serves to resolve much of prior illogical actions.
The narration is well done with a good range of voices. Mood and pacing are appropriate to the plot.
