    One thought on “The Death Row Complex”

    1. I would like to thank the Author for putting this book up to win. I love these books and will read each new book as it comes out. This is a prequel to the book 'The Vesuvius Isotope'. Katrina Stone is an intelligent, determined, strong minded woman. When the FBI turn up to ask her about her Anthrax research and then the pull a gun on her when they see a picture on the wall. Sean McMullan and Gilman are trying to find out what and who killed 68 death row inmates. The three of them are going to ha [...]

    2. (I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).(This review may contain spoilers).I have read the previous book in this series, though it was a little while ago. It was good to have the opportunity to meet Katrina again and see her relationships with the other characters, both her work colleagues and others.I didn't really like Alexis as a character, I have to admit. Even though I could understand why she was acting the way she was and why she had that kind of moral compass, I th [...]

    3. Scary, fast paced, brutal, goodThis second novel by Elise is a fascinating look into the biological weapons threat. The main character is a research scientist, performing groundbreaking research into the mechanism of anthrax's lethal factor. A terrorist attack using her research starts her on a desperate journey to uncover the truth and prove her innocence.This book is scary, because the science is all too real. It's brutal - there are violent, disgusting deaths, kidnappings, assaults, break-ins [...]

    4. I won this book as a first-reads and really enjoyed it. I found the plot very interesting although disturbing. It makes you realize how easily a bioweapon could be introduced into food, etc. All the inmates in a death row area of San Quentin die mysteriously and threats of more deaths to come are made against the US. The deaths at the prison were caused by a new strain of anthrax and the clues to who might have done this lead back to Dr. Katrina Stone, a researcher who works with anthrax. Two FB [...]

    5. I really enjoyed this fast-paced novel almost more than The Vesuvius Isotope. It read like a Dan Brown book, and when you thought you figured out what was going on, you were taken in a completely different direction. I really enjoyed the last paragraph, and how everything seemed as if it would come full circle for the antagonists. The one thing that bothered me about this book was the chapters being divided by date/time. It made sense with all of the different characters and their locations on t [...]

    6. A great second book in the Kristina Stone series. While the writing style here is a bit raw, there's great fun in this biologic mystery thriller with the opportunity to figure out who-done-it, learn about anthrax, and bemoan the sad, low-fund state of graduate students everywhere. Kristina Stone is a dynamic character who engages with the excitement and conflict in her life in all the complex ways real people do, including sometimes with anger and impatience (which too many authors do not allow [...]

    7. This prequel to The Vesuvius Isotope is fascinating! Dr. Katrina Stone is still smart and sexy, but with this second book she becomes a little more human too. An excellent medical thriller that kept me anxiously reading long into the night, and home until I was finished! I just could not put it down! An intelligent read, and well worth your time.Kristen Elise is an amazing writer! Her knowledge of the science is of course a solid foundation for her novels, but it's her storytelling that grabs ho [...]

    8. Disclaimer: I received this book from a first-read giveaway.This book went by way too quickly! Though I think that might have had something to do with me not being able to stop Just like with The Vesuvius Isotope, Kristen Elise makes it clear that she knows her topic and her audience. The level of detail is enough to draw you in without overwhelming you, and who doesn't like a strong female lead? :D

    9. When sixty-eight death row inmates die of anthrax at the beginning of the story, the reader understands this is a biological thriller. Sure enough, two FBI agents appear. Those characters, the flawed female protagonist whose history is gradually revealed, and the various suspects are all developed into rounded humans.There is enough technical information about the anthrax lab to make the story credible, and there is plenty of tension and conflict to make it a page turner. An engaging thriller. R [...]

    10. FANTASTIC Loved it!. I love scientific books like this and this just blew me away!.Twists and turns that were not expected! The characters in this book are complex also. STeady read, I got so engrossed in this book that I forgot to go to bed! Totally loved it!

    11. Very EntertainingThis book was interesting and entertaining but forewarned it is a bit slow in the beginning. Stick with it and you will be rewarded with an exciting finish. Enjoy.
