"The tie-in between The Zulu Virus Chronicles and Black Flagged Series is exceptionally well done. Black Flagged readers have seen the Zulu Virus in action before—but not like this. It's truly a living nightmare of thrills and twists."
"Steven has the research down like Crichton, the action scenes like Brad Thor and the suck-you-in writing style of Vince Flynn."
HOT ZONE (The Zulu Virus Chronicles Book 1)
A BLACK FLAGGED THRILLER SERIES SPIN-OFF
SOMETHING INSIDIOUS HAS ARRIVED--RIGHT IN THE HEARTLAND OF OUR NATION, TURNING NEIGHBOR AGAINST NEIGHBOR!
Dr. Lauren Hale, a new hospital resident, is nearly killed by a raving mad emergency room patient, in a senseless, unprovoked attack.
Officer David Olson, veteran cop and former Marine, returns from a father-son camping trip to discover that his ex-wife has vanished under bizarre circumstances, and his police department is on the verge of collapse.
Jack and Emma Harper, a young, upwardly mobile couple, find their hip city neighborhood rapidly descending into madness.
Dr. Eugene Chang, a research scientist for a major pharmaceutical company makes a shocking discovery that might explain the spreading wave of illness and violence gripping the city.
Eric Larsen, leader of a top-secret, rapid-response unit, circles high above the Midwest, in an unmarked military transport. Mission still unknown, his team waits to parachute into the night.
WITHIN TWENTY-FOUR HOURS, complete strangers from different walks of life will be forced to join together to survive the LIVING NIGHTMARE that has been unleashed on their city--AND THEIR COUNTRY.
This is their story.
WELCOME TO THE HOT ZONE!
A Black Flagged Series Spin Off? How is that possible and why haven’t I heard about this before? All good questions. The simple answer is that I had been waiting for the completion of the core Black Flagged series to draw any serious attention to the link between the books. Mostly because of spoilers (whoever appears here obviously survives the core series), but also because I enjoyed letting readers discover the links on their own. I’ve received hundreds of emails expressing the “pleasant surprise” of discovering familiar names and links to the Black Flagged books. Now that the core series is completed, it’s time to properly unveil the links.
The Zulu Virus Chronicles is named after the “zulu” virus introduced (created by rogue scientist Dr. Anatoly Reznikov) in REDUX (Black Flagged Book 2). “ZVC” takes place roughly a decade and a half after the core Black Flagged series ends in 2009 (fictional book time). The Zulu Virus Chronicles are a frightening look at a mass-scale bioweapons attack against America, perpetrated by domestic terrorists, told from a number of very different perspectives. The good, the bad and those caught in the crossfire.
For Black Flagged series fans, I have no doubt you will enjoy this spin off. Several Black Flag operatives show up in the series (2nd and 3rd book), having spent the past decade hunting down the last remnants of a terrorist organization they had previously spent most of their careers fighting. Unfortunately for them, and the rest of the United States, Dr. Reznikov’s research survived their best efforts to destroy it—once again falling into the wrong hands.
Welcome to the HOT ZONE, and the ZULU VIRUS CHRONICLES!
From the Publisher
An inexplicable wave of illness
Emergency rooms have been overrun by patients, most showing signs of neurological and cognitive impairment—some turning suddenly violent. The symptoms match a rare and lethal disease that affects less than 1 in 500,000 per year. In a single day, city emergency room doctors have seen more suspected cases of this rare disease than the world had seen the previous year.
A city falling apart
As infected citizens take to the streets with their erratic and violent behavior, the city's emergency responders are stretched to the breaking point. Ambulance crews and the police can no longer keep up with the never-ending flood of 911 calls. The city teeters of the edge of chaos and madness.
A government quarantine taken too far
Fleeing the city is no longer an easy option for the uninfected. The interstate surrounding the city has been designated a Federal Quarantine Boundary, enforced by local National Guard units. Beyond that, a far less forgiving quarantine line awaits. Escape from the Hot Zone will become more difficult by the hour-until it's all but impossible.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Likeable characters, well-written and an exciting storyline. As I work in an Emergency Department myself, I could really identify with that portion of the story...it certainly leaves a person wondering what if...
Really looking forward to reading the second one in the series!

Several people are not infected and they try to leave the quarentined area - one is a scientist who may have the why and who is behind it and may also have a way to defeat the virus.
But leaving the infected area is not easy as they are hunted by the infected, the military and maybe others.
Time to buy the next installment.
