Book Review: The Enigma Strain

The Enigma Strain (Harvey Bennett #1)The Enigma Strain by Nick Thacker

The Enigma Strain Synopsis: When a bomb goes off at Yellowstone National Park, the reclusive park ranger Harvey “Ben” Bennett is startled to realize that the blast wasn’t the only threat: the bomb released some sort of virus into the air, and it’s beginning to infect and kill more and more people.

It’s a race against time as Ben teams up with a woman from the CDC to figure who’s behind the attacks, and how to stop the next one.

My thoughts:

I came across The Enigma Strain as part of an ebook promo on BookBub and I’m so glad I picked it up. I read another review that compared the author to Michael Crichton and I can totally see that. In fact, I’d amend that statement to say this book is where James Rollins meets Clive Cussler and Michael Crichton, all authors whose work I love. Well-written, engaging, and sufficiently fast-paced to keep my attention. With a storyline that pits good against evil, the series promises to follow in the footsteps of the awesome authors and their protagonists aforementioned. I read it in a 72 hour period, which I don’t always have time to do – it has all the hallmarks of a grand success, and I very much look forward to reading the author’s other books (I’ve already begun reading “The Depths” which has a different flavor but feels just as engaging already!)
