Sick by Brett Battles (CBR-V #18)

Cannonball Read V: Book #18/52
Published: 2011
Pages: 298
Genre: Thriller

I tend to be weary of some of the cheap/free Kindle books because some of them are really bad. However, every once in a while you find a gem. This is one of them. It's a pretty solid thriller that follows Daniel Ash after his neighborhood was purposefully subjected to a killer virus that claimed the life of his wife. Fortunately, Daniel is immune and so are his two kids, but now the mysterious people behind the virus want Daniel's family for testing. Daniel escapes, thanks to the help of some even MORE mysterious people and tries to wrap his head around the entire thing as he comes up with a plan to save his kids. There is also a few subplots woven in mostly involving the virus threatening to go global.

This book was surprisingly great. It was suspenseful and left enough questions to keep you wanting more but also provided enough answers to keep the reader from losing interest. I guess this is supposed to be a trilogy, which I didn't realize until after I read the book. I think it stands pretty well on it's own, but I'll definitely be checking out the sequels as well.
