They attack with impunity, and without prejudice.

Their goal – to destroy you, from within.

A merciless enemy, just one-billionth our size.


“This is one of the most chilling, gripping, and riveting book series I have ever read.”


Terrorists kidnap and blackmail a young French scientist in Western Africa. The outbreak of an ancient disease kills everyone in a village located in a remote jungle of Guatemala. U.S. government operatives uncover a secret biological laboratory in Trinidad. An isolated death at the hands of this killer virus is discovered in Greece.


Dr. Mackenzie Hagan, a well-respected epidemiologist at the CDC-Atlanta, is called to Guatemala. As the daughter of a retired Commanding General of the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, Mac often says infectious disease is in her blood. While no infectious disease outbreak is routine, this particular hot zone in Guatemala has its own set of complications. 


Nathan Hunter, a covert operative within an off-the-books project for the Department of Defense, tracks down terrorists before they strike. As Hunter unravels a villainous plot with tentacles spanning the globe, his investigative path crosses with Mac's. 


Mac and Hunter work together to analyze the disease and to identify the source. But they soon learn that the biggest challenge they'll face is right at home – a government bureaucracy unwilling to sound the alarm to protect the nation.


“This book deserves a movie.”


The international bestselling medical thriller series from author Bobby Akart formed the basis for an entire semester's course study at Midwestern University. 


When suggesting the Pandemic series to readers, renowned Hollywood entertainment website, PopSugar, wrote:

"This thriller's twists and turns will remind you of the weekly emotional rollercoaster of our favorite doctor drama."


The events depicted in the Pandemic series are fictional. They are, however, based upon historical fact.



“A terrifying thrill ride you can’t get off!”


“This book deserves a movie.”


“As a former microbiologist, I found the storyline too real – it just hasn't happened yet.”


“This is one of the most chilling, gripping, and riveting book series I have ever read.”


“I want all of my grandchildren to read this series.”


“Easily one of the best openings of a series that I've read in quite some time.”


“I found this book to be spell binding. I could not put it down.”


“Loved this edge-of-your-seat book.”


“The only word that I could think of after reading this book is brilliant.”


PANDEMIC BEGINNINGS is a brilliant book that combines basically every aspect of a good thriller with great main characters and throws it into a washing machine with terrorism, bio-weapons, and diseases.”


“Easily comparable to Crichton, Cook, and Preston as one of my top bio-thriller books I've ever read.”


“I’ve recently read at least four of these type of pandemic type novels and I can honestly say this one is the best so far by FAR.”


“The writing is intelligent and informative without getting too bogged down in the science.”


“This book completely exceeded my expectations in every way.”


“As a former Robin Cook fan, I was pleased to stumble across this novel. BEGINNINGS is every bit as exciting and frightening as Coma and Outbreak,...etc.! If you love a good "can't put it down" medical thriller, this is the book for you!”


“Always ahead of his time, Bobby Akart has written a fascinating book about global pandemic.”
