Review: Q ISLAND by Russell James
Whenever a new title by Russell James is announced, I leap at it, knowing I'll be amazed and never disappointed. Mr. James is an author who works tremendously to hone his craft and it shows. His newest entry, Q ISLAND, is one nonstop knockout punch after another, the story of an improbable (although theoretically possible) infectious viral plague. I won't give away the incredibly imagined backdrop--just know that if you're looking for a thriller with unstoppable suspense and horrific proportions, Q ISLAND is most definitely your book.
