Heather Lawrence’s long-awaited vacation to Salzburg wasn’t supposed to go like this. Mere hours into the transatlantic flight, the Houston FBI agent is awakened when passengers begin exhibiting horrific symptoms of an unknown infection. As the virus quickly spreads and dozens of passengers fall ill, Heather fears she’s witnessing an epidemic similar to ones her estranged husband studies for a living—but this airborne contagion may have been deliberately released.
While Heather remains quarantined with other survivors, she works with her FBI colleagues to identify the person behind this attack. The prime suspect? Dr. Chad Lawrence, an expert in his field . . . and Heather’s husband. The Lawrences’ marriage has been on the rocks since Chad announced his career took precedence over his wife and future family and moved out.
As more victims fall prey days after the initial outbreak, time’s running out to hunt down the killer, one who may be closer to the victims than anyone ever expected.
I used to read a lot of DiAnn’s books but I started to not really enjoy her style so I stopped. But when I saw this book come out I had to read it because of everything going on in our world today and how close to home it hit.
It really is a good idea but I still struggle with DiAnn’s writing style. I can’t even pinpoint why. I know many people love her. It think she doesn’t get into the characters mind enough. There were things the characters did that I didn’t see any motivation for in their thoughts or feelings. I guess it seemed superficial.
Even though the story was interesting, I wasn’t really surprised buy who released the virus, I got that almost immediately, yet I did read until the end, but I think if it wasn’t for living through our pandemic I might not have finished this one.
