First book in a series.

Ebola, one of the most feared of the hemorrhagic diseases, has begun spreading across the borders of West African countries. The CDC and the World Health Organization have admitted they are losing control over the disease. Some hint at a possible worldwide pandemic. At exactly this point in time, Emma Johnson graduates from nursing school. She takes a job in an Ebola treatment camp inside Liberia, West Africa. The camp is state-of-the-art. It's run by the CDC and the World Health Organization, and protected by the U.S. military. Emma uncovers a secret about this facility: medical experimentation is being conducted along with treatment. Whether or not Emma can ever escape the camp, she's determined to get the story out. She has intimate knowledge of a biological horror being secretly unleashed upon the world.
Mutation Z: The Ebola Zombies is the first book in a series. In the next book, the zombie virus will cross geographical boundaries and go increasingly out of control.

Review:  The scariest part of the book, is it could happen. Emma goes to Africa to volunteer her services as a nurse at the Ebola camps. The thing is, the camps aren't quite what they seem. With the recent Ebola outbreak, this book really kind of hits home.
The plot sucked me in, as it was well done and believable. This take on the pandemic angle was well done, and an interesting to see a zombie outbreak from start. I have to say this kept me on the edge of my seat, and made me want to wash my hands repeatedly. I felt the book played on our fears of sickness and how scientist play God. My only real complaint with the book was that the ending felt sudden. I enjoyed the book and I'm curious as to how the second one continues.
