Based on the global experience over the past year, significantly embellished into a work of dramatic fiction with the incorporation of conspiracies and evil plots, in order to make this an entertaining medical and political narrative.
‘K-666: BRUTUS - The Mongolian Virus: War through biological weapons’ by Alessandro Boccaletti is a Bond-esque take on a global pandemic. Sinister governing organisations setting out to manipulate a once dormant virus and use it as a biological weapon in order to expand their economy and improve their global positioning. As more and more people fall ill around the world, the unlikely co-operation of an American virologist and his Russian colleagues may just be able to find the solution needed. Based on the global experience over the past year, significantly embellished into a work of dramatic fiction with the incorporation of conspiracies and evil plots, in order to make this an entertaining medical and political narrative. With either a great deal of research or initial knowledge, the author navigates the scientific research and medical scenarios within this book in a way that appears technically detailed and believable throughout. Personally, I didn’t like the footnotes used in the book as I feel that as this is a work of fiction, information is either important enough to be included in the main narrative and should be integrated there, or else left out. However, this little pet peeve of mine didn’t stop me from following on and enjoying this medical thriller in one sitting.
