Outbreak By Davis Bunn

A mysterious virus has surfaced in the waters off the coast of West Africa, putting everyone at risk. Then evaporates. Is it over? Or, could it be that it just changed course?

Theo Bishop and Avery Madison have seen its devastation and don’t believe the outbreak has ended. When they’re sidelined at every corner they begin to wonder if the government is trying to sweep it under the carpet. After an attempt is made on their lives, they worry someone is trying to take them out before they can uncover the mystery behind the virus. Will it reach their shores before they can do anything about it?

Outbreak is a suspenseful tale and cleverly woven by the author. There’s no doubt about the quality of the writing. However, for me, the story fell a bit flat. There are many POVs and I struggled at times to keep up with all the characters. Also, there were times when I felt the story stalled in spots and I found myself skimming. The antagonist’s POV was drawn out too much and instead of creating tension, it dragged on for me.

Even though there are many characters, they are well-crafted and engaging. The plague itself kept my interest and I wanted to know more.

It’s apparent there will be another book. Will I read it? Probably. I do want to find out how it ends.

I give Outbreak three stars. It will definitely intrigue the reader!
