In Daniel Kalla's Pandemic, this thriller debut packs a bunch with a cross of a medical thriller and a military thriller combined in real life true topics in today's world. Dr. Noah Haldane was a doctor for the World Health Organization and travels the world, when there's a major epidemic health concern. While he dealt with his wife's affair and confused sexuality, he also wanted to be there for his young daughter Chloe. At the news of an outbreak in the Gansu province of China, he joins the other WHO doctors to deal with this major outbreak and contain it. After they had taken care of business, it wasn't the end of it. Hazzam Kizzir and Abdul Sabri have plans to spread this virus worldwide in an act of war, while Cairo Police Chief Achmed Eleish was on the hunt for Kizzir. When word had spread it had arrived in London, the world stood still and prepared for the worst. From there, that's when Noah met Dr. Gwen Savard who worked for the Department of Bioterrorism and joined forces to deal with this bad viral outbreak. In an instant, there's a chemical attraction between them, even after they've been quarantined for a few days. When they thought the worst would be over, it had spread to Asia, Canada and even the USA. That's when they come up with a plan to stop the bioterrorists and make a viable medicine to cure all before it's too late. In the end, it's a shocking ending to fight for their country, even if their lives depended on it.

This was a fantastic and mind-blowing medical thriler debut. I cared for Gwen Savard and Noah Haldane together and alone. I had found Gwen charming and full of life, while I worried about Noah's wife conflictions on who she wanted to be with. I did feel sorry for Chloe. I did  like some of the central characters like Duncan and Alex Clayton. I loved the various locations and settings throughout the world for this epic thriller to take place. It was very vivid and picturesque from every bright lit place to a dark corner. This would have you at the edge of the seat and leave you breathless from start to finish with non-stop action, drama, a spark of romance, and pleny of intrigue.

Will you be a victim of this pandemic today?
