JOANNE'S MYSTERY PICKS
The killer in this novel by Canadian author Daniel Kalla is not a person. The killer is the bubonic plague. Alana Vaughan is an infectious disease specialist with NATO and is called to Genoa, Italy, to attend a patient suffering from the disease. Could it be bioterrorism or is there another explanation?
Alternating between the modern story with Alana Vaughan and the story contained in an eight-hundred-year-old medieval journal, Kalla pulls no punches when describing the horrible progression of this usually fatal disease and the suffering of its victims.
The clock is ticking as Vaughan and her team hunt for patient zero. As the disease spreads, it’s a race to stop it from reaching epidemic proportions.
A great thriller that’s hard to put down once you read the first page.
