Publisher's Summary

Modern-day Rome: Two American archaeologists suddenly die in an underground passageway in the Roman Forum leading to the buried rooms of Emperor Nero's Golden Palace. The Italian authorities conclude the deaths were caused by a devastating and highly contagious virus. Tom Stewart, an NYU forensic archaeologist who was present when the deaths occurred, becomes entangled in the race to find the supply of the virus - a race involving many powerful players desperately seeking the deadly contagion. Stewart must find and destroy the virus before others harness its sinister power.

The Vatican, foreign groups, the world's largest genetic seed manufacturer - all have their reasons, and none will stop until they succeed, no matter the cost or risk to millions of people if the virus escapes and causes a pandemic.

Mayans built Machu Picchu?

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. I began to lose interest in the book after the comment about the Mayans building Machu Picchu....tell me, who was the editor of this book.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Something by Jennifer Hiller

What does Edoardo Ballerini bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I did enjoy his performance. It was apparent that he understood the characters as Hyland was trying to portray them.

Could you see The Moses Virus being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No. Although the premise was good, it seemed to be written with the thought of it being made a movie.

Stop Impersonating Narration

In my opinion, narration should not be dramatized or impersonated by the narrator. It's distracting when the narrator tries to change from his or her voice to one of the persons in the story/stories.

GOOD IDEA FOR A STORY - BAD STORY

The end result of what could have been a good story, ended up as a long car/plane chase. If you enjoy endless baddies nearly getting the goodie, buy the audio book. Even the narrator, whose name appears to be Italian, pronounces Fiat as Fee Art!!! The author should also know that the star of the show, the virus, should have more info in general about viruses. By the way, no virus kills in seconds of contact. There is no tension in this so-called thriller. Bad Germans, dodgy Vatican employees, etc., but we have a beautiful heroine. Hopefully she doesn't die. I'm not listening any further to find out. Still have two hours to go but life's too short to carry on.
