A very well written and researched book. this book is the second in a series but can be read as a standalone. The characters are well developed,interesting and believable. The story line of this book is creepily timely so if you find current world situations frightening you want want to save this one for a later date. But this book is extremely good and I do recommend it!!

I received this book from NetGalley and Lion Hudson LTD for an honest review.

This was a new author for me. The plot and storyline were very well done.  Such a wonderful story. I would definitely try another book by This author.

Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with the e-ARC. I think with the Coronavirus possibly becoming a global pandemic this book's premise is even more scary and realistic.

Katie goes undercover as a technician named Caitlin to ferret out possible scientific fraud at an isolated BL3 research facility.  One of her new colleagues falls grievously ill shortly thereafter, and Caitlin is forced to hide her medical background from the others while at the same time making the diagnosis no one else suspected.  Movie buffs will be reminded of the time Harrison Ford secretly saved a patient’s life while posing as an orderly in The Fugitive.  Many complications ensue as the team realizes that someone on site wishes them harm.  The book gives a flavor of life in the lab while maintaining a sense of suspense.  The various twists and occasional threat of danger keep the action moving along.  The protagonist is appealing, and there are plenty of suspects to keep the reader guessing.  The ending is satisfying, if not a huge surprise..

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for a digital advance review copy.

Loved this book! I am a scientist yet learned a lot as well. I felt that at the student level this book would be awesome. The characters were well developed and the plot kept me guessing. All of the time Katie spent at the laboratory, I felt tension and suspense. 

Unusual and different types of characters blend together well in the story. Yet, the reader knows something sinister is going on...

Katie/Caitlin is always "on pins and needles" afraid that she may break her cover. Working with Lyle Linstrom, is a plus as is Justin, Katie's friend from her time working in Antarctica.

Highly recommend - give this book a try!

Many Thanks to Lion Hudson Ltd. and NetGalley for the great read!

I wasn't sure about this book at first. It had some parts that confused me. But gradually I grew to like the main character and her quiet ways. The book has some science to it but it's kept on a pretty basic level of understanding. I liked Katie interactions with her co-workers and her boyfriend Justin. I felt the investigating was softly done and that the killer was a mystery right up to the ending. That there was a killer was a mystery right up to the end. I ended up enjoying this book.  #AnAirThatKills #NetGalley

A very well crafted and exceptionally well researched book. I hadn’t realised it was the second in a series but after doing some research I found that although there are some same characters the two books are completely stand alone. The characters are all developed and interesting and if you like to end a book feeling just a tad anxious then this is definitely for you.
