he was Harvey Milk's speech writer believe it or not The two men definitely had than a passing familiarity with technologyengineering Human nature government the military and the red tape that those organizations generateThe Nightmare Factor is about a weaponized bacteria that is released at a convention of veterans in San Francisco The bacteria is designed to target only certain members of the population and once it's targets are dead ceases to kill Much of the novel focuses on the investigation and is obviously inspired by the outbreak of what is now known as Legionnaires Disease see 1976 Philadelphia Legionnaires' disease outbreak Throughout the novel there is a focus on governmental bureaucracy and how self serving politicians and bureaucrats hinder things and do not have the best interests of the populace at heart There is also a low grade anti military sentiment that runs throughout many of the books written by Scortia and Robinson Naturally some aspects of the novel are dated Newspapers are a major player and the government has an easier time controlling the flow of information The investigation takes place with very little media oversight and there is no mass panic for our heroes to deal with Good luck writing about such an event now without including a healthy dose of anarchy to accompany the tale Eventually the villain is revealed and the book ends with a warning An uneasy ending at best Well that's the plot The book itself is something of a yawner There is no real suspense no feeling that things are teetering on the brink of Doomsday and that's not a good thing for a novel that is supposed to be thrilling and disturbing Since the disease is engineered to kill specific targets and then cease to be a threat it's akin to a cruise missile than Captain Trips The protagonist spends almost as much time having sex with another female doctor and worrying about their relationship as he does actually working the case while being hindered by idiot and spineless bureaucrats and a nasty Army officer which results in a suspense novel that is boring and uninvolving notice how long it took me to get through it Perhaps because we have lived through so many events see above that were once the property of novelists there is no way an imagined event is going to seem that impressive Maybe the authors were worried that if the book was too technical they would lose the readers attention a criticism directed at The Andromeda Strain or maybe they didn't want to write an apocalyptic novel so they went to far in the other direction Well whatever their motivation they turned out an unengrossing novel Who would have thought that such a scenario would be a yawn

It did according to the villain of The Nightmare Factor a masterplanner of biological warfare Everybody's been developing biological agents and they've been using them Before Sadat kicked them out the Russians were cultivating dengue fever in Egyptian laboratories The Chinese are working on Lhasa fever in their African client states The Nightmare Factor Scortia Thomas N The Nightmare Factor Hardcover – Feb by Thomas N Scortia Author Frank M Robinson Author If you’ve read this book you’re probably wondering why I even gave this book two stars It probably doesn't even deserve a one star I finished reading this book about a week ago for a high school project and now we have to make a book review and before I go any farther this wasn’t a very good book at all Anyways I was looking at how people reviewed this book and people seem to agree that it wasn’t a very good book too Maybe if there was suspense it just maybe may have been betterThis book in some ways is realistic than you probably think though For example controlling a virus is very much possible but not in the way this book interprets it In the book you had to be exposed to the virus twice then be exposed to Vanadium In reality you would only have to be exposed to the virus once But to have to be exposed to an outside material is also possible If the US wanted to it could launch a virus into any place it wants to and vice versa for other countriesThis book is or less a mediocrity While reading this book I didn't feel pulled into it It was in no way interesting at all and there were no suspenseful moments were the world might come to an end in one move The closet we got to suspenseful was towards the end when DrDoohan confronted one of enemies but even that ended in three pages Don’t even get me started on the actual plot if you can even call it a plot The book starts off in a police chase that isn’t too relevant to the story Then most of the book is just Doohan and the general running around like a chicken that just got their heads chopped off oh and Doohan’s relationship with another doctor named Suzanne Is this a pitiful semi romantic or a mediocrity The ending might have been worse than the book itself Doohan and the general get into a gun fight which ends in half a page and the virus factory blows up that ended in two pages Anyways I don’t want to ruin the entire ending if anyone even bothers reading the book
