Publisher's Summary

They attack with impunity, and without prejudice.
Their goal - to destroy you, from within.
A merciless enemy, just one-billionth our size.
Welcome to the next global war.
A new dystopian, post-apocalyptic fiction series from author Bobby Akart (the Blackout Series, the Boston Brahmin series, and the Prepping for Tomorrow series). The events depicted in the Pandemic Series are fictional. They are, however, based upon historical fact.
Terrorists kidnap and blackmail a young French scientist in Western Africa. The outbreak of an ancient disease kills everyone in a village located in a remote jungle of Guatemala. US government operatives uncover a secret biological laboratory in Trinidad. An isolated death at the hands of this killer virus is discovered in Greece.
Is there a connection, or are these simply a string of coincidences?
Dr. Mackenzie Hagan, a highly-educated, well-respected epidemiologist at the CDC-Atlanta, is called to Guatemala. As the daughter of a retired commanding general of the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, Mac often says infectious disease is in her blood. While no infectious disease outbreak is routine, this particular hot zone in Guatemala has its own set of complications - including a mysterious operative sent there by the Department of Defense. Events unfold and Mac is sent around the world investigating new cases involving this same, rare disease.
Nathan Hunter, a covert operative within an off-the-books project for the DOD, tracks down terrorists before they strike. As Hunter unravels a villainous plot with tentacles spanning the globe, his investigative path crosses with Mac's. Was it fate, or something else? Mac and Hunter work together to analyze the disease and to identify the source. But they soon learn that the biggest challenge they'll face is right at home.

Quite apart from being a really well-balanced book, and very relevant today, it appears to be very well researched. I kept checking on Google to find out if certain bits of information were true. Yes, they were. I normally would be very disappointed to find that the book is not self-standing, however, I bought it as the first in a trilogy and immediately bought the followup. Can't wait to continue. I feel it deserves the 5-star rating all round. Loved the narrators and the performance.
