This is a perfectly good second book in the series, but it isn't as exciting as the first book. The book contains chapters 5 to 8 of the story. Chapter 5 is a flashback to the beginning of the outbreak, filling in the backstory of the journalists a bit. Chapters 6 to 8 are a continuation of the main story. There are a few action scenes, but I felt that things were moving along quite slowly. It's good enough to make me want to buy the third book, and maybe some of the issues introduced will be explored further there.
