Book Description

In the name of science, an international team of researchers creates a deadly virus capable of killing untold millions. While the U.S. government quietly stockpiles a vaccine, a militaristic group of doomsday preppers begins to mobilize in response to the economic collapse they're convinced is coming.

Sasha McCandless has put danger and intrigue behind her to focus on her blessedly unexciting commercial litigation practice and couldn't be further removed from the escalating tension. That is, until her boyfriend, Leo Connelly, the new chief security officer for the vaccine manufacturer, discovers someone's been looting the cache.

Then the Doomsday virus is stolen and a researcher is murdered. Sasha and Leo have just three days to prevent the release of the ultimate biochemical weapon. Sasha's saved her share of innocent lives in the past. But this time can she really save the world?

More About the Author

USA TODAY Bestselling Author Melissa F. Miller was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Although life and love led her to Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and, ultimately, South Central Pennsylvania, she secretly still considers Pittsburgh home.

In college, she majored in English literature with concentrations in creative writing poetry and medieval literature and was STUNNED, upon graduation, to learn that there's not exactly a job market for such a degree. After working as an editor for several years, Melissa returned to school to earn a law degree. She was that annoying girl who loved class and always raised her hand. She's worked for major international law firms, clerked for a federal judge, and ultimately started a two-person law firm with her lawyer husband.

Powered by coffee, she writes her legal thrillers while pretending not to hear her three young children wreaking havoc. She has a very lazy dog and three hyperactive gerbils.

5.0 out of 5 stars When Legal Meets Disaster 29 Mar. 2013
Just like any good established brand, the fourth Sasha McCandless novel is instantly recognisable as part of a series starting with Irreparable Harm and carrying on with the consistently named Inadvertent Disclosure and Irretrievably Broken. But it takes more than an intriguing, legal-sounding title to make a good legal thriller, and with this instalment in the series Sasha finds herself trying to prevent a disaster of near-apocalyptic scale: a pandemic of a deadly, man-made flu virus stolen from a pharmaceutical company. Yes, there is plenty of legal goodness to satisfy all of us amateur lawyers, but that is just one of the many elements that makes IP a real page turner, making it the most action-packed novel in the series so fa. Careers are in jeopardy, lives are at risks, and there are even some casualties: all in all, nothing that a good grasp of federal law and some self Krava Maga moves can't solve And, of course, a lot of coffee.

All four books in the Sasha series have a very current, topical feel to them - they are centred around events or situations that would make headlines news - from an airliner crashing in Book 1, to the very controversial and current issue of hydrofracking in book 2, to a more traditional but still gripping series of murder in Book 3. By Book 4, Miller has made this cocktail of law and disasters her trademark, successfully creating a wholly plausible plot around what happens when a killer virus falls into the hands of a group of survivalists, also known as `preppers'. As if to confirm the fact that Miller always writes about `hot-off-the-press' subjects, only a few days after finishing the book, as I flicked TV channels I found an entire TV series dedicated to preppers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 20 Jun. 2014
By Lili
I'd enjoyed the previous Sasha McCandless books but a little disappointed with this offering. I wouldn't really call this a legal thriller.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Yet 31 Jan. 2013
By Jackie Kisting - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the best one yet. I bought it the day it came out and moaned because I had to go to work instead of read! The "Flu" was so real and I caught myself holding my breath when things got reallly scary. I love the way Leo and Sasha work so well together and argue very different points of view. Every book has brought more life to the characters. I would recommend this series to any mystery lover and especially those of us who love the "legal side" of mystery. GREAT READ
The author is really neat person who interacts with us on Facebook and lets us know how things are going and how long the wait will be for the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Sasha saga continues and doesn't disappoint. 31 Jan. 2013
By Ultrasound girlie - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
When you start this book, clear your schedule. The Sasha saga again pulls you in and the twists and turns keep you hooked. Sasha and Leo are learning the new structure of their, now long distance, relationship. But when potentially needing to save the world, there is no learning needed. They still have the enviable, "in sync, I know what you are thinking, I've got your back," connection that the best duos strive for. A look into the cut throat, big dollar, pharmaceutical world and the lengths people will go to if they will benefit financially or gain powerful control. And Sasha and Leo have to swim with sharks AGAIN.

I don't know what it is about Ms Miller's books but if I start them I can't put them down until the very last word. This book was right up there with her others and I am already anticipating the next one. Truly delightful.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read! 7 Feb. 2013
By Carrie - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been eagerly awaiting this book, and it most certainly did not disappoint. I finished the book within a day because I just couldn't put it down. The first few pages that gave some background about the doomsday flu were a little slow, but once I got into the actual story, it was like the story flew by! I can't wait for the next book!
