Since the onset of the coronoavirus pandemic, March 2020, most readers will feel like they literally have just lived the first 2 sections of Wright’s book. Remember this is fiction should you dare to read to the end…..Guaranteed: page turner!
“Whew! A compelling read up to the last sentence. Wright has come up with a story worthy of Michael Crichton. In an eerily calm, matter-of-fact way, and backed by meticulous research, he imagines what the world would actually be like in the grip of a devastating new virus.” —Richard Preston, author of The Hot Zone and The Cobra Event
“As a distinguished journalist and author of several highly successful factual books, Wright approached this just as he would any other journalistic assignment, carrying out detailed research and preparation. As he went from expert to expert he heard clear warnings that something like the coronavirus would happen. It was a question not so much of ‘if’ but ‘when,’ and crucially, many asked how prepared governments would be to cope with it . . . Is truth stranger than fiction, as the American writer Mark Twain once suggested? Now we all have a chance to judge for ourselves.” —Jonathan Marcus, BBC
In this riveting medical thriller–from the Pulitzer Prize winner and best-selling author–Dr. Henry Parsons, an unlikely but appealing hero, races to find the origins and cure of a mysterious new killer virus as it brings the world to its knees. (Amazon)
“This timely literary page-turner shows Wright is on a par with the best writers in the genre.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
