Outbreak by Davis Bunn

Book reviews are subjective. I tend to rate books not according to how “perfect” they are, seem to be, or are said to be in general but rather to how perfect they are to me. Bethany House provided me with a complimentary copy of this book, for which I’ve given an honest review.

Outbreak by Davis Bunn

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

(Click the title to find the book description/blurb.)

Theo Bishop, the brother of a pharmaceutical company CEO, microbiologist Avery Madison, and journalist Della Haverty are teaming up to prevent the outbreak of a global pandemic. But those who want to sweep the looming disaster under the rug aim to terminate the team’s efforts, even if it means terminating the team’s members in Outbreak by author Davis Bunn.

Though I wasn’t on the edge of my seat as I read this suspense novel, I did finish it within twenty-four hours, which isn’t the norm for me and books longer than novellas. My interest ebbed and flowed throughout this one, and the drawn-out, almost uneventful events from a bad guy’s perspective dulled the pace more than they built the tension for me. But the shortness of the chapters leading up to the climax helped.

This is a smart read, with its mix of science, danger, a little faith, and a little romance. The ending makes a sequel quite possible without strictly making one necessary. Given that this is one of my all-time favorite ChristFic authors, if a sequel does come out, I’ll likely give it a whirl.
