Bat out of Hell: An Eco-ThrillerDe (autor) Alan Gold
en Limba Engleză Carte Hardback – September 2015
Scientist Debra Hart and her team of experts are tasked by the United Nations to stop the disease. Racing against time, they must find the cause and the cure and figure out why this deadly disease—spread by bats—is killing thousands in cities across the globe. Debra and her team will struggle to stop the disease from spreading to millions more, even if it means killing off every bat alive. But fighting to prevent her are manic animal rights’ activists who rail against species genocide, even if it means risking the deaths of human beings. And hidden behind a cloak of secrecy is a crazed academic who’ll even kill top American government officials to save one living creature.
This is the nightmare scenario that Debra faces as the public becomes so terrified of bats that entire communities become vigilantes.

“A superb job of bringing the reality of an Ebola like virus to the pages of Bat Out of Hell. . . . In this page turning novel, we’re submersed in the race to discover the cure, we’re frustrated by the political red tape, and we anxiously await the outcome of the eco-terrorists agenda . . . plenty of suspense, a few plot twists, and some poetic justice.” —John C. Farris, Dead, Buried, and Back! Magazine
