Dr. Peyton Shaw of the CDC has been sent to Kenya to isolate and stop a mysterious Ebola-like disease. That is what she does best. It’s her life’s work. Within a matter of days, the disease has infected the globe. And, Peyton has been pulled into a battle for the very existence of mankind.
Riddle’s first novel in The Extinction Files, Pandemic, is a very detailed account of how the CDC, WHO, and other response groups handle an epidemic outbreak. Couple that with an ancient organization that believes it is saving the human race and you have a fantastic mystery to solve. There are layers upon layers of interconnections that will keep you guessing throughout the entire book.
Pandemic is a very long book, but so worth the read. Riddle does an excellent job of building the backstory and pulling together all the pieces in the mystery. He truly brings forth a quality product. I look forward to the sequel.
5 out of 5 stars.
