In the thriller, Where is the Girl? Carl Johnson, an ordinary citizen turned into The American Terrorist at a personal war to take revenge on the FBI invoked murder of his son and 11-days torture he himself had to endure, ending up in a spectacular rescue mission of the first U.S. female president’s daughter who seemed to be kidnapped by a Mexican drug lord. In Contagion, the sequel, Johnson and his team of mercenaries is after the Mexican but quickly discovers that there’s a major play with unknown adversaries going on. Both the president, her daughter are struck with a virus, that’s so contagious that all the important connections and the teammates are taken out faster than you can turn pages. According to the media, there’s one man to blame for this outspread: the American Terrorist.
Jeffrey Poston enlarges the playing field by involving Mexico, higher ranks in government circles, slowly to introduce the real actors behind codes, developments, and fake IDs. Carl, who’s quickly left to minimal devices faces the challenge to identify his adversary and obtain an antidote to prevent further contamination of humankind with this deadly virus. Poston uses inner thoughts and conversations to slow down between the fast-paced strikes and counter-attacks. Sure, narrow escapes, a marvelous immunity to the virus, and an open ending to take the American Terrorist to the third mission in a next thriller. Hmm, that costs credibility. I would have completed this adventure here, serving the reader two books on Johnson’s endeavors that are hard to put down.
