CFBA - Germ

Captain’s Log, Supplemental

Germ by Robert Liparulo

The list of 10,000 names was created for maximum devastation. Business leaders, housewives, politicians, celebrities, janitors, children. None of them is aware of what is about to happen--but all will be part of the most frightening brand of warfare the world has ever known.

The germ--an advanced form of the Ebola virus--has been genetically engineered to infect only those people whose DNA matches the codes embedded within it. Those whose DNA is not a match simply catch a cold. But those who are a match experience a far worse fate. Within days, their internal organs liquify.

Death is the only escape.

The release of the virus will usher in a new era of power where countries are left without defense. Where a single person--or millions--could be killed with perfect accuracy and zero collateral damage. Where your own DNA works against you.

The time isn't coming. It is now. Pray the assassins get you first.

Camy here: The prologue was a bit gruesome for me, so I offered this book to my high school kids, who were eager to read it. Many of them like Ted Dekker, and so this book appealed to them.

If you have teens who love these kinds of thrillers, I think they’d enjoy it.

Check out the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance blog for a review of this book.
