Book Review: COLD SILENCE
Cold Silence is James Abel's latest Joe Rush thriller. This story is a nightmare scenario straight out of the fever dreams of terror response planners; a manufactured virus, combing traits of leprosy and necrotic fasciitis, is released in the country, with deadly results. The perpetrator is a Jim Jones-type preacher, and Rush, a Marine doctor, and his team race against time to find him and the antidote. It's pretty standard potboiler fare, except for the twist that the personal danger to the hero doesn't end with the demise of the villain. Overall, this is a pleasant diversion to kill a day or two.
