9781943968015: The Chimera Sequence

Cole McBride makes a chilling discovery while investigating a mysterious disease causing the deaths of endangered mountain gorillas in war-torn central Africa.

When a humanitarian aid hospital nearby diagnoses a disturbingly similar human case, the former Special Forces veterinarian knows he must figure out how to stop this outbreak from spreading--before it blows up into a global pandemic.

Halfway across the continent, a massive cargo ship moves out of Sudan's largest port. Buried deep within its hold is one container of urgent significance for its buyer in the Persian Gulf.

And back in Washington, D.C., the owner of a Lebanese restaurant a stone's throw from the White House finds a cryptic message in the Drafts folder of his e-mail inbox.

It's one week before Independence Day, and an unpopular president is preparing to host America's biggest celebration in years. There's just one small problem: he's not the only one with plans for the holiday.

With the woman he loves sick and close to death, Cole puts his own life on the line in a race against time to discover the truth behind the outbreak's origin--a truth that will link it to one of humanity's most ancient plagues and threaten the very heart of America.

This is how it happened.

About the Author:

Elliott Garber is a veterinarian and military officer currently assigned on active duty with a special operations command. He has lived in India, Egypt, Mozambique, and Italy and traveled to over 50 other countries around the world, including a recent deployment to Iraq. You can often find him under the water, up in the air, or out in the woods. Elliott lives with his wife and two young children in Coronado, California. This is his first novel.

Review:

"Elliott Garber's debut thriller The Chimera Sequence has everything I love in a novel: great characters, a thrill ride of an adventure, and a looming global menace. But best of all, the story hooked me from the first intriguing page to the last illuminating line. Read Garber's first book, a thriller destined for bestsellerdom. I can't wait to see what this guy writes next!" -James Rollins, New York Times bestseller of The Sixth Extinction "Elliott Garber has delivered a high-stakes thriller that will earn your attention with clean, clear prose and a solid grasp of global geopolitics. The Chimera Sequence is terrifyingly real- istic, chock-full of research that rings as true as today's headlines." -Bob Mayer, Former Green Beret and New York Times bestselling author "I couldn't put down Garber's engaging, rapid-paced, action-packed thriller. His riveting first novel benefits greatly from his experience as an Army veterinarian who has worked with a variety of unlikely animals around the world. The book even features important appearances from a military dog, a Secret Service dog, and a tracker bloodhound. What's not to love?" -Maria Goodavage, New York Times bestselling author of Top Dog and Soldier Dogs "Animal lovers rejoice! Not since Jurassic Park has a science thriller of this magnitude been written just for us. While the story is filled with human characters you'll hate to love and love to hate, the real heroes (in my humble opinion) of The Chimera Sequence are an appealing supporting cast of mountain gorillas, working dogs, and other creatures great and small. One word of warning: don't pick up my fellow veterinarian Elliott Garber's book unless you're ready for an adventure. You won't be able to put it down until you reach the very last page!" -Dr. Marty Becker, "America's Veterinarian" and New York Times bestselling author "In his outstanding debut, Elliott Garber has masterfully crafted a sizzling bio-tech thriller with The Chimera Sequence. Garber draws upon his own broad experience serving with the U.S. Army throughout the Middle East and Africa, but it his skilled writing that sucks the reader into the story with such vivid realism. Strap in and enjoy the ride. I know I did." -Richard Phillips, bestselling author of The Rho Agenda trilogy "As a Gorilla Doctor worried about viruses being transmitted from humans to gorillas and vice versa, I found The Chimera Sequence totally fascinating and accurate from a scientific standpoint. The setting genuinely captures the essence of fieldwork in the Virunga massif. Elliott Garber walks us through a scarily plausible plot as bioterrorism threats become more sophisticated and political tensions rise in the present day world. His detailed but easy-to- read style offers a thriller that will be compelling for fellow scientists and laymen alike." -Dr. Mike Cranfield, wildlife veterinarian and Co-Director of the Gorilla Doctors "A bird's eye picture of the real nature conservation challenges in the sub-Saharan and Great Lakes region of Africa." -Dr. Fred Nizeyimana, Gorilla Doctors Field Veterinarian, Uganda
