Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could Have Been Better! The book started great with the unleashing of a human extinction virus in an African mining camp. The weakness in the story was the slow pace and lack of any connection to the main characters. It seemed that one wanted the virus to win as the human element was absent from the start. Could have been better from a writer with such pedigree.
