In Atlanta, Dr. Peyton Shaw is awakened by the phone call she has dreaded for years. As the CDC's leading epidemiologist, she's among the first responders to outbreaks around the world. It's a lonely and dangerous job, but it's her life - and she's good at it. This time she may have met her match. In Kenya, an Ebola-like pathogen has infected two Americans. One lies at death's door. With the clock ticking, Peyton assembles her team and joins personnel from the Kenyan Ministry of Health and the WHO.

  • Horrible Australian accent and a tenuous drawn out story

Narrator needs to work on his Aussie accent.

A great story and I enjoyed the plot thoroughly. However the narration, particularly the Australian characters, was atrocious. If you are going to produce a book with many Aussie characters, please employ a narrator who can do an authentic accent. I cringed every time he attempted to speak in an 'Aussie' voice. It almost made me give up and miss out on a great story.
