There is very little actual outbreak, it is only a side plot to the main story. I do enjoy the stories Cook is trying to 4/5. Jan 15,  · Read this book in the 's when it was first published and it was just as thrilling a read now. Outbreak deals with the issue of deadly viruses and was filled with action and intrigue.

The characters were well developed. Well edited. A real page turner. Robin Cook is one of the best medical thriller writers out there.

His books are timeless/5. Aug 02,  · The new book is a sequel to Preston’s bestseller, “The Hot Zone,” which focused on the Ebola outbreak and the discovery that the virus was accidentally transported to a government.
