CIA operative, Ridley Fox, never stopped hunting his fiancée’s killers—a weapons consortium called The Arms of Ares. When an informant leads him to an old bunker outside of Groznyy, Chechnya, Fox is captured, beaten, and left for dead. When the informant rescues him, Fox learns that his capture was no coincidence: someone had set him up—possibly another government agent. Fox barely escapes after learning that Ares has acquired a hyperdeadly microbe—called Pandora—that is believed to have wiped out ancient civilizations. The trail leads Fox to Tokyo where he discovers that people within the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Japanese Intelligence want Pandora for themselves. The only person Fox can trust is a woman from his past who he nearly got killed.
I just finished this book and I just to sum it up in one word - AMAZING! I so love action packed books, suspense, conspiracy and gun power. This book contains everything and more. This was a book that is worth making a movie.
First few pages of the book instantly got me hooked and I loved every page of it. Every character was solid by itself but pairing it with the different characters made the book more enjoyable. Not a book that you instantly know what happens in the end, and because of that I love it. A little change that I could make would be to add a little more on the science department since the book is about a pandemic that could wipe out the face of the Earth. But since Brooks wrote Pandora's Succession with ease that it was such a light read in a way. I had definitely read books that was hard to finish but with Pandora's Succession, it was just pure entertainment.
I would definitely recommend Pandora's Succession especially if your like me who loves some hard core action, well written plot and an easy read.
