Book Review - "Bloodborne" by Gregg Luke

One ordinary afternoon, research specialist Dr. Erin Cross steps into a local deli to get some lunch and nearly takes a bullet instead. Thanks to timely intervention from a former Marine, she walks away from the seemingly freak incident. But when she returns to find her lab under security lockdown and her apartment ransacked, she realizes the attack was anything but random. Erin can’t make sense of the threat, given her low profile after a disastrous H1N1 vaccine trial. She doesn’t know that her former colleague has used the virus to develop a potent bioweapon or that her recent research holds a key to his success. And she doesn’t know that his collaborators want her dead before she blows the whistle.

Fleeing for safety with her research in hand, Erin unravels the threats with help from the timely Marine, former Special Ops agent Sean Flannery. But the closer they come to finding answers, the more questionable Sean’s behavior becomes. His erratic moods and suspicious communications are more fitting for an enemy than a friend. And as the crisis comes to a head, Erin can’t be sure who harbors more secrets—the bioterrorists pursuing her or the one man who can give her protection.

My Review:
I really enjoyed Gregg's last book, "Blink of an Eye", so I eagerly awaited the launch of "Bloodborne".  Clear your schedule, because you won't be able to put "Bloodborne" down. You will be yanked into the story from the first page. Gregg's vivid characters and intriguing plot twists will have you hooked from the beginning. His medical knowledge and writing style is reminiscent of Robin Cook in his prime. If you're looking for an escape to an exotic location in a book filled with head-spinning plot twists, go buy this one!

Other Opinions:
