Publisher's Summary

The world is grappling with an issue of enormous scale and human impact. In the arms race with deadly pathogens, there can be no final peace. The only question is whether we fight well or poorly. Defeat means massive disruptions to our daily lives, huge losses economically, and death.

From the imaginative mind of international best-selling author, Bobby Akart, comes a series ripped from today's headlines. Meet the Virus Hunters, the disease detectives on the front line of a never-ending battle to save humanity from viruses one-billionth our size.

Mr. Akart has delivered up-all-night thrillers in his 40-plus novels. His new Virus Hunters novels will give you pause and remind you that we're in a global war for survival against an unseen foe.

With a Bobby Akart novel, "You are there. Feeling what they feel. Anger, joy, love, mourning. You feel it all. Not everyone can write a book like this. It takes a special writer to make you feel a book."

Finally, this series is dedicated to the Virus Hunters - the disease detectives, shoe-leather epidemiologists of the CDC's Epidemic Intelligence Service who work tirelessly to keep these deadly infectious diseases from killing us all. Thank you!

Virus hunters Book 1

Bobby Akart’s book Virus Hunters Has pulled me inside the covers walking side-by-side with the characters. With everything going on in our world and the attitudes of politicians etc. Dr. Harper Randolph and her assistant Dr. Becker are amazing characters. The only problem I have is that I have to wait for the recording a book two. Thank you Mr. Akart For providing behind the scenes information and a thrilling read

Can’t wait for the next one!

I love your writing style. I have never been into dystopian books, however, I started with James Wesley Rawles. It kills me to have to wait for the next in your series! But you get them out pretty fast!! I love Kevin Pierce as your narrator.

The Narrator is terrible...

She sounds like she's reading a book report in front of a high school class. She gets an A for monotone. I've purchased almost every book Bobby Akart has written. I now have over 625 audiobooks from Audible. I am returning this one.

Must read

This is the first novel I truly was unable to pause, as other reviewers have stated difficult to stop listening to at bedtime. I was hooked from the first chapter to the last and eager to down load the next in the series.
