Tiffany Piel | 7 comments Trying to find a book I read a long time ago. All I can remember is that it had several different character points of view. It was about a flesh eating virus or bacteria that traveled through water. There were cut scenes describing the virus and who it was now infecting. Pretty sure it was published sometime in the 90s, likely late 90s. I want to say it had a one word title. Cannot think of anything else but really wanting to reread as I loved it.

Tiffany Piel | 7 comments I think the main plot was a team/person trying to stop the spread of the virus/disease.

Tiffany Piel | 7 comments That's definitely the feel of it but I just went through his bibliography and don't see the book I'm thinking of. This is the right direction though! I think it could be one of his contemporaries, publishing around the same time.

Tiffany Piel | 7 comments I am. I do remember that I read this book around the same time that I read Subterranean by James Rollins. I think they came out around the same time.

No zombies or vampires?

Tiffany Piel | 7 comments No, it was more science-y than fantasy.

Tiffany Piel | 7 comments No, that's not it. Thank you for suggesting it though!

Tiffany Piel | 7 comments I don't believe so. I distinctly remember it's not post apocalyptic. It's more science oriented. I feel like the cover of the book was all red and black.
