Great review. This story sounds reminiscent of the Andromeda Strain, and I loved that book. I'm not a massive fan of the medical genre on the whole either, but this sounds like an exception.

Love these outbreak-type books where the main character must aid in finding the cure before it wipes everyone out!

Sounds like a fast-paced adventure. Great review!

I like the intriguing medical plot about this strange but highly infectious bout of the common cold. And what is happening around the patient just heightens the suspense. Thanks for the review.

I don't normally read books with a medical epidemic premise, but your review made this one sound interesting. I like the idea of sub-plots and mysterious behavior of the characters. If it is as engaging as you describe, I will be able to overlook any minor errors. Thank you for the recommendation. 💕
