This is a pretty good story overall. Interesting concepts but I think this was an earlier Sigler novel. He has written better novels than this one. A good concept and a good story but a bit undermined by inexperience I think. I would recommend this but I would recommend you read "Infected" first. Infected is a far, far better novel in its execution. You can see, even in this unpolished form, that Sigler is an author with a wealth of talent. That talent truly shines in "Infected".
