Another fun futuristic vaguely sciency thriller from Grant Following her (mostly) very good Newsflesh triogy. The big reveal of this volume which occurs at the end of the book, I had figured out a 100 pages in. It seems only Grant's stubborness to confirm my strong suspicions prevented an earlier reveal. There were plenty of suprises and a good plot, although in the service of "realistic" dialog, there was a lot of repititious banter. As for the science of it, I know little to nothing about parasitology or epidemiology so I have to go on pure feel here and nothing sounds too far removed from the stretchy realm of "plausablility". I leave it others with stonger scientific backgrounds to determine if too many liberties have been taken in the name of a pretty good story.
