Venice provides a transformative window into greed, revenge and survival in a compelling debut novel that introduces readers to Pepper McCallan, a consultant to the U.S. Counterterrorism Agency.
Eau Claire, WI, September 01, 2015 — In her thought provoking debut novel ‘ Ebola Vaccine Wars ’ (eBookIt.com; August 2015), Alexi Venice expertly transports the reader to a not-so-distant future faced with an Ebola pandemic that is on the cusp of wiping out humanity.
Venice introduces Pepper McCallan, a beautiful professional who overcomes personal tragedy to enter the world of counterterrorism, and who continues to appear in this series of books by Venice.
‘Ebola Vaccine Wars’ takes the reader through grief, injustice and anger in a well-crafted story featuring Joseph “Diji” Owusu, his struggle with Ebola in his
native Nigerian village, and his curiosity about the vaccine trial that was inflicted on his tribe. Diji is torn between a safe path of medical school and love in Austria versus joining forces with BodyTruth Worldwide, an anti-Big Pharma group.
David Arnout is the head of Futuraceutical Company. His raw ambition drives him on his personal quest to win the race for an Ebola vaccine, anticipating the sales revenue will make him a wealthy man. Venice lays the groundwork for a collision course between Futuraceutical Company and BodyTruth Worldwide in hot spots around the world.
Pepper McCallan is a hardworking mom who doesn’t understand why her family and employer, Futuraceutical Company, are under attack. Will she survive the attack? Will her marriage survive? Will she keep her job? Will she be able to help Brent Cahill, a roughhewn U.S. Counterterrorism Agent, solve the terror plot against Futuraceutical as they travel to remote, unfamiliar and often dangerous destinations?
Venice navigates the darkest of human emotions and emerges with a heroine whose strength surprises herself, setting up the reader for a gritty, fast-paced book about a nerve gas attack perpetuated by drones in the next Pepper McCallan installment, ‘Svea's Sins.’
