Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
The waters off the West African coast are a menacing red, full of algae thick enough to stand on in places. In nearby villages, mysterious deaths start to occur--and the panic mounts. But before an alarm can be sounded, the sea currents shift, the algae vanishes, and the deaths stop. Everyone is relieved when things return to normal, and local government officials are happy to sweep the publicity nightmare under a rug. An American biological researcher, Avery Madison, is dispatched by his employer to piece together exactly what happened, having long feared an ecological disaster just like this could occur. He's had little evidence to go on before now, and what he finds in West Africa is rapidly disappearing. But Avery knows the danger hasn't disappeared--it has just moved on. When parts of the Caribbean start turning a familiar red right before hurricane season kicks into high gear, the implications are clear. If Avery and his colleagues can't convince the world of what's about to happen, toxic destruction could be loosed on American soil. Will their efforts prove too late?-- Publisher's description.

    After a romance novel, Moondust Lake (2019), Bunn returns to thrillers with this fast-paced read that balances action and cozy undertones. An international biomedical disaster is brewing off the coast of West Africa, with hundreds already dead from an unknown cause. But someone is trying to keep the threat under wraps, and it will take a team of unlikely heroes to unravel both political and medical mysteries. Theo Bishop hasn't spoken to his egomaniac brother, Kenny, in years when, out of the blue, Kenny saves Theo's business and asks for a bizarre favor—go to Africa, no questions asked. Eager for adventure, Theo accepts, and finds himself on a mission that changes the course of his future. Theo and a diverse team of characters form unbreakable bonds in their struggles to find the source of the illness and avoid the dangers that seem to be lurking around every corner. Outbreak is an accessible read that will appeal to readers who enjoy mystery and suspense and also appreciate inspirational fiction. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
