Publisher's Summary

We always want to believe history happened to those in the past. Many aspects of historical events were unforeseen. However, not this one. Warnings had been issued, yet the world was unprepared for the invisible enemy that threatened to kill us all.

Welcome to the next global war.

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. 

"Few books or writers have captured my attention like Bobby Akart."

Deadly outbreaks of diseases make headlines, but not at the start. Every pandemic begins small, subtle, and in faraway places. When it arrives, it spreads across oceans and continents, like the sweep of nightfall, killing millions, or even billions.

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."

Special dedication:

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!

Another interesting chapter in the hunt.

The hunt for patient zero continues into China. Great story to listen to, particularly during the time of Cov-2.

Fantastical

Bobby Akart is an author whose books, not just keep you on the edge of your seat, but can somehow look into the future. His research is top notch. His characters become “people” you love and when the book or series is done, it is like saying good bye to dear friends. I can not stop listening to his stories. You can pick up or listen to any of them, and you, too, will be hooked.

Just an advertisement for the CDC

I tried the second book to give it a chance. instead of a viral thriller, it was a book on how awesome the CDC handles a crisis, including the COVID 19 outbreak.
Overall, the book was boring.

NVARNG

BOBBY! Your depiction of the Nevada Army National Guard (NVARNG) is complete BS. I have listened to all of your products and this one was insulting to my/our (not yours) service to the State of Nevada and the country as a hole. I'm done with you after your insulting and degrading depiction of what Nevada Army National Guard Soldiers and other National Guards across our country have done and stand for. Your welcome! WE WERE THE FIRST STANDING US MILITARY (ASK GENERAL WASHINGTON) ANYTHING TO MAKE MONEY BOBBY?

Sorry Stacey, guilt by association!⁸ At least you knew how to pronounce Nevada.

Typically Bobby

He definitely does his homework. Though his novels are often formulaic they're decent storytelling.

Excellent sequel!

This was a great sequel and captured my attention from the very beginning, keeping it all the way through. There were no slow parts and I'm anxious to begin the next one!!

Disappointed

Disappointed in the length of this book perhaps because the content of the first was so good, now for virus hunters 3!
