    WOW A real, tantalizing page turner Bunn knows how to spin a clean written, thriller of a tale Kept me guessing all the way to the end not at all the culprit I d surmised Shocking, really, how creepily possible it all could be, given today s current events And surely, based on the ending, Bunn hasbooks planned in a series down the pike3.75 Rounded up.

    An intense race against time thriller that created bedlam in my sensitive reader s imagination Sometimes just the suggestion of evil ispotent than reality Corruption and greed compel unscrupulous men to ignore a deadly threat and it s up to Theo and his ragtag team to make sense of the crisis while dodging hitmen and unscrupulous leaders Loved that Theo is your average well, not so average university professor He s no James Bond or Jason Bourne though his sense of honor and commi An intense race against time thriller that created bedlam in my sensitive reader s imagination Sometimes just the suggestion of evil ispotent than reality Corruption and greed compel unscrupulous men to ignore a deadly threat and it s up to Theo and his ragtag team to make sense of the crisis while dodging hitmen and unscrupulous leaders Loved that Theo is your average well, not so average university professor He s no James Bond or Jason Bourne though his sense of honor and commitment does echo those fictional heroes Bunn s fast paced, easy flow writing style enhances the desperate edge of this page turner A breath snatching, heart stomping exhilerating read.Book provided courtesy of Baker Publishing and Graf Martin Communications Inc

    I was a bit disappointed in this book The writing seemed stilted The story felt disjointed to me The whole thing didn t seem like it flowed.

    I read the last page and thought But wait, there sWhat a cliff hanger I got so wrapped up in the story that I felt sure we would learn all the answers But then I turned the page and realized I had reached the end Another book is a must With all the excitement, suspense, action, possibly a budding romance, and a touch of faith, surely it doesn t end here One thing I found most interesting is the way I was drawn into a story about a series of events that could turn into a pandemic I read the last page and thought But wait, there sWhat a cliff hanger I got so wrapped up in the story that I felt sure we would learn all the answers But then I turned the page and realized I had reached the end Another book is a must With all the excitement, suspense, action, possibly a budding romance, and a touch of faith, surely it doesn t end here One thing I found most interesting is the way I was drawn into a story about a series of events that could turn into a pandemic During my career in bank operations and information technology, a part of the job involved developing plans to keep the bank operating on the outside chance a pandemic swept through our area I always felt I was wasting time, probably in large part because I had never experienced anything of that magnitude The lead characters in the book are working day and night to avoid a potential pandemic of unknown origin Having traveled to West Africa and seeing the impact on villages there, they are faced with a number of questions for which they have no answers Every question seems to lead toquestions Even as they seek diligently for answers, someone is doing everything they can to stop them What are their opponents afraid of Exactly who are their opponents Even that is as much a mystery as the deadly disease that is spreading If you enjoy suspense, you must read this book I received a copy of this book from the publisher This is my honest review All opinions are strictly my own

    Overall, unexpected and disappointing The story didn t play out, causing it to rely heavily on the characters and their development Unfortunately, they didn t bear up under the weight You just don t care about the characters Even their flaws were custom made to solve the problem Too easy, no risks I m not sure what the point of this story was I wouldn t recommend it.

    I really wasn t ready for the story to end As with other Davis Bunn books, I wanted to spendtime in the story, with the characters I liked the subtle influence of faith on the story and it also increased the suspense as I wondered exactly what had happened in Kenny s life and when Theo would figure it out And I loved this from the book, if you can t see the answer then it s not a real answer As usual, Bunn doesn t use any extra words, but the story still has vivid descriptions to provi I really wasn t ready for the story to end As with other Davis Bunn books, I wanted to spendtime in the story, with the characters I liked the subtle influence of faith on the story and it also increased the suspense as I wondered exactly what had happened in Kenny s life and when Theo would figure it out And I loved this from the book, if you can t see the answer then it s not a real answer As usual, Bunn doesn t use any extra words, but the story still has vivid descriptions to provide readers with sensory experiences and a sense of place I received this book from the publisher but all opinions are my own

    Well, that was a waste of about two hours of my life I coulda spent that time watching Independence Day for the 60th time.

    I had a hard time putting this book down Once again Bunn has produced a gripping, suspenseful story that will keep you up late, stretch your mind, and leave you worn out, amazed, and satisfied but hoping for a sequel There s mystery, hired assassins, cutting edge science, memorable characters, romance, danger, you name it I highly recommend this book.I received a free review copy from the author all opinions are my own.

    This is a basic, formulaic suspense thriller The kind that some authors crank out dozens and dozens of over the course of their careers There are actually a few authors who do this that I like Dean Koontz for one I can read through those books like I can eat through an entire bag of microwave popcorn They re quick and satisfying at the time, but not anything you ll write home about The thing that draws me to authors like Koontz is not really the specific plots, but the quirky characters, w This is a basic, formulaic suspense thriller The kind that some authors crank out dozens and dozens of over the course of their careers There are actually a few authors who do this that I like Dean Koontz for one I can read through those books like I can eat through an entire bag of microwave popcorn They re quick and satisfying at the time, but not anything you ll write home about The thing that draws me to authors like Koontz is not really the specific plots, but the quirky characters, witty dialogue, and unique descriptions This book by Bunn has none of those.None of the characters are particularly unique or memorable Theo Bishop is an economics professor with a failing side business as a biomedical equipment and supply distributer and these professions don t seem to be particularly important to the plot His brother Kenny is the president CEO of a major biomedical research company that focuses on vaccines In the course of his work, he discovers that a deadly outbreak of an unknown disease has taken place in West Africa and is being covered up by military authorities there The plot leads us on the mission to discover the truth behind the outbreak of this airborne disease before it potentially makes its way to other countries during hurricane season.We re told that the Kenny of the story is not the same Kenny as the past Apparently, most of his life has been marked by greed and competition But, we are told, he has had some type of religious based transformation, and is nowconcerned about the welfare of others than profit The author doesn t really give us any specific details about this transformation, such as how and when it occurred Other than the fact the Kenny s family says grace before meals and that Kenny himself has been reading the Bible and taking notes, we don t really learn anything about the nature or depth of Kenny s change of faith This seems like a major oversight on the author s part If you re going to bring up a change of faith as a major part of the plot, you need to sayabout it This bothered me Another thing that bothered me or at least sent my eyes rolling was the love lust at first sight that Theo feels for Della, a journalist who works PR for Kenny s company We re meant to believe that both of these characters are thrown together in crisis mode when Kenny sends them on an urgent mission to see and report on the deaths of every member of a fishing village on the African coast Yes, lot s of books and movies expect us to believe that lust at first sight can lead to long lasting love relationships when two people work through a crisis together But in reality, I suspect that any two people suddenly thrown together because of a crisis arelikely to be so confused and stressed out by the situation at hand that they will not be immediately harboring romantic thoughts about each other Finally, I thought the ending was too abrupt Almost as if the author just needed to wrap everything up for his deadline We don t learn what the disease is We don t learn whether or not the disease actually spreads We don t learn whether or not Kenny and Avery, his lead researcher, come up with a vaccine to combat the disease We don t learn whether or not the brothers Kenny and Theo end up reconciling after the vaguely mentioned troubles they ve had in the past And there s no way of knowing whether or not Theo and Della are destined for a lifelong relationship or just short term infatuation Overall, I d say this book was a fairly cheap bag of popcorn There was nothing about the writing that encourages me to read anything else by this author, and I ll probably forget about the book entirely within a few weeks after we discuss it in book club

    Can they find the truth before it s too late Just when you think you ve gotten Davis Bunn pegged, he surprises you with something different While Outbreak features his trademark style of writing it still brings something new to the table From the dramatic red and white cover, on the version I read, to the last page this was one suspenseful read One that I found difficult to put down and I finished it in near record time The premise of the powers that be manipulating and covering up a cata Can they find the truth before it s too late Just when you think you ve gotten Davis Bunn pegged, he surprises you with something different While Outbreak features his trademark style of writing it still brings something new to the table From the dramatic red and white cover, on the version I read, to the last page this was one suspenseful read One that I found difficult to put down and I finished it in near record time The premise of the powers that be manipulating and covering up a catastrophe of global proportions is something that sounds suspiciously like it could be ripped from today s world headlines That very fact added a great deal to the suspense and drama of the tale Outbreak is edgy and edge of your seat reading from one of Christian fiction s top authors It makes you question what IS and what s real So, if you are into suspense with touches of thriller and a dash of medical fiction, Davis Bunn s gripping semi recent release just might be up your alley I received a copy of this book from the publisher All opinions are entirely my own
