When a farmer becomes violently ill with his death soon to follow and then more victims begin to turn up at the hospitals it becomes clear there is a new epidemic loose in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. It’s discovered that there is a new tick born virus haunting the area as more begin to die from the disease.
Curt Kennedy, a biothreat tracker, and Mariah Rossi, an epidemiologist, are put on the case and find themselves tracking a terrorist who has let the disease loose on the area and plans more devastation.
Containment was an alright thriller with decent writing but I was never really too engrossed and compelled the way I’d like to be with a thriller. I found myself questioning the official synopsis given with this one, to me they gave away most of the book so as I went along I was never really finding myself too surprised as I read.
I will warn the animal lovers this one may just make ones blood boil also with the way the virus is dealt with. That along with many other little details in here really didn’t seem to be too realistic to find myself with the thought that wow, this could happen which I also like to have with this type of a read. In the end I just found this one an OK read, it just never really wowed me as I went along.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
