Four years after a tragic mission decimated his team, Cole "Tox" Russell has been disavowed by the United States. And that's fine--he just wants to be left alone. But when a dormant, centuries-old disease is unleashed, Tox is lured back into action.
Tox and his former Special Forces team regroup to work with FBI deception expert, Kasey Cortes, and fiery archaeologist, Tzivia Khalon, to search the globe for answers--and a cure. As the mission leads from one continent to another, it becomes clear they're not just fighting a plague but battling an ancient secret society whose true goals remain hidden.
With time running out and the threat for a global pandemic rising, Tox and his team realize their sole chance might be to reach back through centuries of silence to find the only answer that can save them all.
This is not my normal choice of genre for a book, but I thought I would give it a try. If you like a fast paced, action filled book, this is the book for you. I did however think that the story itself was confusing a number of times.
Reading the Prologue confused me as I was not familiar with that story from the Bible. Then the following few chapters introduced you to the characters in the book with their back stories. By the time everything meshed together you are a few chapters into the book, and thoroughly confused!
Once we got into the main story line though, things settled down and the action and intrigue started. Because of the fast paced story being told you do get swept up in it all and you do need to know what happens next.
Stars out of 5 : 3 Those first few chapters, although essential to the book spoil the book to my mind. I spent a number of chapters being totally confused and thinking would this really happen in real life? This is the first book in The Tox Files series, the next one The Crown of Souls, is due out later this year.
