SOLVANG, Calif., May 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Kevin E. Ready (http://www.kevineready.com/) recently announced the early release of his newest novel, "Viral," set years after the current COVID-19 pandemic subsides. "Viral" is a deeply researched, popular fiction saga of an even greater infectious nightmare set to sweep across the planet: the avian flu. Though largely forgotten by a world already weary of illness, the flu bides its time, far more virulent and posing a threat to humanity on the scale of the 20th century Spanish Flu, or the dreaded Black Death. Only a few brave first responders and scientists can stem the tide. "Viral" is available directly from Saint Gaudens Press, and Amazon.com.
Synopsis: A young nurse loses her best friend to the disease, and struggles to survive. A first responder is thrust by chance into a position of leadership, working to save thousands of lives. A public health professional tracks down the source of the outbreak, seeking answers before it is too late - in the process of tracking the disease he discovers an innocent victim and his life is forever changed. A California family is thrust into the center of the battle. Two female scientists, one American and one Chinese, use their skills and knowledge to fight a pathogen with the deadliest potential the world has ever experienced. And behind the scenes: a geopolitical confrontation between countries looms. One that will force players to make hard moral choices, or thrust the world into a devastating war in the middle of it all.
The author is available for digital interviews and in some cases, personal appearances. Reviewers and media may also receive a complimentary digital copy, or request a physical volume for review: [email protected].
