Condition Black by Stu Jones & Gareth Worthington - With a GIVEAWAY!
EVAN WEYLAND, a brilliant research scientist tasked with developing new technologies to fight cancer, sees the world differently through the lens of Autism Spectrum Disorder. His guiding light is his wife, Marie—a globally recognized war correspondent. When she returns home from Syria deathly ill with an unknown disease, Evan believes his research may be the key to unlocking the cure. However, when his superiors refuse his request for help, Evan’s single-minded love for Marie drives him to take matters into his own hands—a decision with far greater consequences than he could possibly fathom.
BILLY VICK, a Captain in the Army’s Criminal Investigation Command, is a combat veteran unable to leave the horrors of war behind. Only the love of his family and a sense of absolute justice keeps him grounded. When Billy’s unit becomes aware of a US-sanctioned airstrike on a civilian settlement in Syria and an eye-witness reporter comatose with an unknown illness, he fears the worst. An unethical military project thought mothballed has resurfaced, and a civilian, Evan Weyland, may be about to inadvertently unleash it upon the world. It’s a mistake that could cost the lives of millions.
Pitted against each other in a game of chess-like deception and intrigue, with time running out, both men must come to terms with the magnitude of what’s at stake—and what each is willing to sacrifice to win.

Wow wow wow! Five stars for sure! Just incredible. This story is so action packed, not a dull moment, and I do mean moment. This very loosely reminded me of the old movie - Innerspace with Martin Short. If you haven't seen it, you should, its great! But in the movie he actually is shrunk and gets injected in his wife’s body. It is serious but also hilarious. And in this book it is all virtual reality... like a very intense video game. Only instead of a game it’s an all out war inside her body (and out!)! And, not so hilarious either, very serious and kind of scary.
“Endobots versus nanobot versus Omega versus Marie’s immune system. A free-for-all melee a kin to a mid evil battlefield.”
"The sky above was a smeared watercolor painting, the blue wash of night bleeding into the orange glow of dawn. a pale crescent moon clung to the edge of the night."
