Publisher Description

When there’s nothing left to lose, there’s no limit to what you’ll risk.

Jake Parker’s world collapsed with the violent death of his wife during a police-led raid. In the awful aftermath, he hung up his detective’s badge for good. Now ex-military, ex-police, he has embraced a simple civilian life. But when a deadly new disease begins to threaten American lives, Jake is dragged out of his self-imposed retirement.

When a young family at a remote detention center die from a mysterious illness, Jake is contacted by a government official to launch a covert investigation. An unknown disease has entered the system, causing agonizing death and visible signs of blood pooling beneath the skin, and it seems to be spreading. If Jake can’t get on the ground quickly to eliminate the threat before it becomes an epidemic, countless more innocent lives could be at risk.

With the help of medical professor Eliza Mendoza, Jake heads to the border, but what they uncover there is evidence that this devastating disease is man-made, and part of a calculated plot aimed right at the heart of government. With powerful forces ranged against him, Jake must use all his ingenuity to bring down the ruthless organization behind the attack. Failure is not an option.

A pulse-pounding action thriller from a USA Today bestselling author. Fans of David Baldacci, I Am Pilgrim and Jack Ryan will be gripped.

Containment by Nick Thacker

If you’re looking for an action-packed, page turner & suspenseful thriller, you’ve found it‼️. 👍. I highly recommend Containment by Nick Thacker & gave it the highest rating because it satisfied all of the things I love about mystery-solving detective thriller novels & more❣️😎👍. Ex-detective Jake is called upon to take a case by the Director of ICE in DC & told to call in someone he trusts to assist. His old friend & partner (still working out of Boston PD) is Jake’s choice & after meeting with Shaw, they bring in scientist, Dr. Elise Mendoza for medical assistance‼️. The team realizes from the beginning that deaths occurring at ICE border detention centers are from a new & frightening source‼️👎. Will this highly experienced & intelligent team solve the case before more ives are lost!? After several attacks from armed thugs, something or someone evil is trying to keep them from the truth‼️👎. There are plenty of twists & turns to keep you quickly turning pages & on the edge of your seat & keep you guessing until the end! Grab your copy to find out all of the absolutely freakish details of this outbreak‼️😱😳👏👏. Kudos to Mr. Thacker❣️. 😍👍👏.
