Quinlan McKee has spent her life acting as other people. She was a closer—a person hired to play the role of the recently deceased in order to give their families closure. Through this process, Quinn learned to read people and situations, even losing a bit of herself to do so. But she couldn’t have guessed how her last case would bring down her entire world.

The only person Quinn trusts is Deacon, her best friend and the love of her life. Except Deacon’s been keeping secrets of his own, so Quinn must set out alone to find Arthur Pritchard, the doctor who’s been trying to control her life. The journey brings Quinn to Arthur’s daughter, Virginia, who tells Quinn the truth about Pritchard’s motives. The former closer will start to see that she is the first step in fighting an epidemic.

But Quinlan doesn’t want to be a cure. And with all the lies surrounding her, she realizes she has no one left to rely on but herself—even if she doesn’t know who that is anymore.

The Epidemic by Suzanne Young is a riveting story that I could not put down.  While it is part of the Program series, it definitely can be read as a stand alone novel but I must admit that after reading this book, I went straight on to working my way through the wholes series!

The Epidemic's plot and it's characters are fascinating. The story line is compelling and it just grabbed me at my deepest emotions and wouldn't let go.  This story has stayed with me with me a long time after reading this book and for me, that is a sure sign of having read a great book!  


4.5 Stars
