Description

This book is definitely for action-thriller lovers-- from shootouts in Iraq to close quarter combat in the snowy mountains of Russia, the action never seems to end. Cold era Soviets, the Gulf War, a deadly virus, and a budding flirtation between a doctor and a former soldier. For example, airplanes don't deploy flaps after landing to break, they deploy speedbrakes to destroy lift and make braking more effective, flaps are extended during the approach to reduce the speed. Yet for all the familiar conventions, there are more than a few twists and complications to make the story unpredictable and interesting. That said, Jordan can’t resist the one-liners and various tropes that one comes to expect in an action thriller.

There are also a few moments were the logistics and science are just a bit too stretched, I normally wouldn't mind too much but just things like the characters being able to zoom around the world with minimal fuss and there is a very awkward juxtaposition of this book being written before Covid-19, but also being very much based around the idea of a Zombie virus being treated as a disease outbreak. The “Dark Harvest" storyline was promising: something is causing people to turn into ravening killers, and only ex-soldier Cameron Becker and WHO medic Lori Dalton can stop it. The soldier and doctor must race against time to find a cure that leads from Iraq to Turkey and finally to the infamous Dyatlov Pass, where the mysterious fate of Nine Soviet mountaineers in 1959 may hold the key to saving millions of lives in 2019. A suspenseful, gripping read that transported me into the freezing mountains and had me guessing to the end.

The cast's movements in the Middle East are beyond unrealistic, and that's considering this is a virus/plague/zombie book.

Primero a una persona que hubiera disfrutado con películas como “La jungla de cristal” o “Depredador”. Cameron Becker, former army ranger and CID is now a private military contractor (PMC) in Iraq charged with ferrying Russian businessman, Belikov, into the green (safe) zone in Baghdad. I appreciate the genius that is Will Jordan (aka The Critical Drinker), a guy on youtube who regularly turns out critiques of our fractured culture that are uniquely insightful and wickedly funny. It also made a pleasant change from serial killers, abusive husbands, revenge plots and locked room mysteries. After forming an uneasy alliance with WHO medic Lori Dalton, Becker sets out to uncover the truth behind the attack, and quickly realizes he’s caught in the middle of something far bigger and more dangerous.If anything, I would like to let you know most of us were delighted with the limited horror scenes, so it would be fantastic if you could work on more of those.

At one point I laughed because there is no way that real humans could endure the series of events and keep going with the kind of single-minded resolve Cameron and Lori show. Four mercenaries chosen for this task were on their way carrying this deadly virus in an aerosol can to Washington, London, Dubai, and Beijing. He is best known as the author of the RYAN DRAKE series of action thrillers, and for his YouTube alter-ego, THE CRITICAL DRINKER, amassing well over a million followers and quickly becoming one of the most popular movie critics on the internet. Finally another star lost due the ending, it felt rushed and uninspired, with some clear issues that I won't mention due spoilers, but to be honest, was a let down, it looked like the author run out of pages and have to finish the book. My one chief complaint is that the characters were nearly superhuman in their efforts to solve the mystery.Will Jordan) has amassed more than a million followers by reviewing and taking apart movies and television series in savage diatribes that are as amusing as they are insightful. Many thanks to Netgalley and Blackstone Publishing for the much appreciated arc which I reviewed voluntarily and honestly. Opposite Becker is Lori Dalton, an epidemiologist tasked with figuring out how to contain and counteract this horrible virus.
