Waiting On Wednesday (134) The Anthrax Protocol by James Thompson

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine where readers share which books they are highly anticipating. This week I want to share The Anthrax Protocol by James Thompson.

Why I'm Waiting: I don't share them often on here but I am a huge fan of books, films, documentaries etc... that deal with biological catastrophes.  These type of stories intrigue yet terrify me. I guess that's just what makes them so good to read though! Anyway, I knew when I read the premise for The Anthrax Protocol that this was one I'd have to read and I look for ward to getting my hands on a copy soon. 

Expected Publication:
February 23, 2016 from Pinnacle Books

In an excavation site in Mexico, a team of archeologists uncovers the lost tomb of Montezuma--and a deadly strain of anthrax as ancient as the Biblical plagues. One by one, the team falls violently ill, bleeding from their eyes and ears before succumbing to a slow, painful death. Whatever was buried with the Aztec chief is still active, infectious--and now airborne…

It Spreads Quickly…

In Austin, a young archeologist listens to the dying words of her mentor in Mexico--a warning to quarantine the site before all hell breaks loose. In Atlanta, the CDC's Dr. Mason Williams leads an emergency squad on a life-or-death mission--into the hot zone. At Fort Detrick, an army officer sends a trained team to secure the anthrax--as a biological weapon. But time is running out. The disease is spreading rapidly across the border, into the airports, and across the globe, killing thousands. With no cure, no vaccine, and no way to contain it, there will be no hope for humanity--to survive…

    1. I know right?! Thanks for stopping by and sharing your pick as well (which is equally awesome sounding).

  2. I definitely approach books and movies about tragedy with trepidation... it kind of freaks me out! but i really hope you like this one when you get to it!
    thanks for stopping by my blog earlier!

  3. The thing with biological catastrophes is, the more realistic they are, the better they are. But also the more terrifying and nightmare-inducing. Sometimes I can handle them and love them and sometimes I can't handle it! o_o

  4. I've never heard of this one, but it sounds really good! I'm going to add it to my TBR. Thanks for sharing! Thanks, also, for visiting my WoW! Hope you have a great weekend!
