Publisher's Summary

As the Second World War turned in favor of the Allies, Germany became a sinking ship. 

Nazi rats started to plan ways to escape inevitable revenge at the hands of the victorious forces and partisans. Looted wealth was hidden around the world to finance personal lifestyles and to fund future plans to restore the Nazis to power. 

The ultimate evil man of the centure fakes his suicide, escapes from his bunker and settles in southern Argentina, physically altered, where he produces an heir to carry on his plans for a new Fourth Reich.

This son succeeds him and uses his father’s accumulated wealth to develop a bioweapon that can be hidden before an attack on the general population. The weapon causes severe neurological symptoms, resulting in populations of zombie like creatures. 

Standing in the way of this is a team of CDC-trained USDA veterinarians, French investigators from the prestigious Pasteur Institute, and a young Lakota Sioux Indian from Fort Peck Montana. These friends were "commissioned" by the young man’s late Shaman great-grandfather to find satanic "destroyers" of life.

Now they are on a course to find the man who has developed a hidden plague that threatens the very existence of the civilized world.

Can they stop The Trojan Plague?

"Always have a backup plan."

It is always a bad sign when the reader starts checking now much longer there is of the book four plus hours before the end. Mine you, by then some twelve hours had already passed. ..
Initially, this apocalyptic, action packed, medical thriller seemed to holds such promise: a rabies like virus was to be released amongst the U.S animal .population, terrifying enough in itself, but the evil ingenious mind behind the plan did not stop there: a two stage vaccination offered protection from the awful and fatal contracted illness but, in reality, the second really offered further affliction. The head of the pharmaceutical company making these faux answers to the malaise he himself had ordered, intended to bring about world domination for the pure Aryan race. Well, he was the son of another who'd tried to achieve the same by means of a World War.
Soon, another plan was underway, and the intrepid team again bumbles into action to save the world. With bad dialogue and very little character development, they do have a secret weapon: they are the Chosen of the Crearor, selected and protected to defend the world against the Destroyer, with a bit of supernatural help along the way. By this point, I was having misgivings about the book, which in turn, led to my clock watching. A good editor to clear up minor mistakes, pump up the characters and cut the read time in half to a mere right something hours would do wonders for this book.

Narration by Dennis Baxter is mostly good, read with gentle emotion, the timbre of his voice pleasant to hear. He reads with clarity and with good modulation, and has a remarkable knack of giving individually distinctive voice to Each of the book's protagonists, make and female. Not so good, however, is his French character accent, nor the French phrases scattered through through the text. His was a difficult task and, overall, he did well, breathing some life into the characters.

I was fortunate in being freely gifted with a complimentary copy of The Trojan Plague, at my request, by the rights holder via Audiobook Boom. My thanks for that. I was unaware until after reading this book that it is part of a series, and not the first, but it holds well as a stand alone. I did enjoy much of the story and the scary concepts of how the virus was distributed, but the heavy handed her of supernatural elements and turning this from a visceral and realistic thriller into a Good versus Evil confrontation I personally found unwelcome and unnecessary, especially in a book over 16 hours in length. I would have preferred stronger personal character developments.

Son of a Führer!

Once again, the Nazis are the perpetrators of choice. This time, they plan to let loose a weaponized strain of the rabies virus, inoculating various animals, pets included, to do their dirty work. The mutated rabies virus will turn people into crazed, vicious killers, something resembling zombies without being undead. The chief antagonist, Mendoza is the offspring of Hitler. He desires revenge against the Americans and their allies for “humiliating” Germany in the 1940s. Obviously, he labors under a warped perspective. He plans to overwhelm multiple cities with disease, panic, and chaos, shutting down businesses, transportation, and power, bringing the government to its knees. As usual, we switch between the conspirators, the CDC, and various government agencies attempting to determine who, what, and where. The Germans are persistent, I’ll give them that. The storyline is a bit absurd, penned by a very active imagination, but the characters are interesting and likable. The last addition, Alice was a nice touch and added a little romance that had been missing from the tale.

Great listen! Great story.

It was truly an honor to be able to bring this fabulous story to life. Pierce weaves interesting characters into a tale involving his own background as an animal physician. Could his story actual happen? Give it a listen and decide for yourself.

Okay book, frustrating narration

The book itself is okay. Nazi zombies? How can you go wrong? However, the narration has consistently inconsistent cadence, strange splicing, and is overall just really hard to listen to. I've narrated some books myself, so I know the work that goes into a project like this - for that, I always respect the narrator. However, I think quite a bit more work could have been put into style and editing.

Science VS Supernatural

As a representative of AudioBookReviewer here is my review on The Trojan Plague written by Pierce Roberts. Hilter’s son tries to take over the world with a secret genetically engineered virus. The world's only hope is a group of scientists, who have already defeated an evil Nazi scientist before, who happen to all be close friends, and who happen to also all be super religious. Every conflict's keypoint of resolution is solved not by the skills of the scientists but by supernatural happenstance. The author leads the reader by the nose through the entire book. From the excessive amount of detailed information including meals that each of the characters ate to every character’s excessive religious beliefs.

The narrator of this scientific thriller was Dennis J. Baxter. Unfortunately, this narrator’s performance did not add anything to the story. His pacing throughout the book was off. Instead of a flowing river, this narration is a trip down some white water rapids.

Editing, quality, and production were on par with most books I have listened to. It was clear, with no issue with sound or quality.

Very frustrating!

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. The story itself is my favourite genre and may be a good story however I struggled with it greatly due to the narration. It was awful if someone told me it was computer generated narration I wouldn't be surprised. There were huge un-natural pauses mid-sentence and the voice tones going up and down for no reason! it was so off putting I gave up with 3 hours of the book left to go, every time I listened, I just kept thinking about the gaps and the tones and how horrendous it really is! Whilst thinking about this i missed what was going on in the plot! I battled for about 3 weeks with this and had to wave the white flag. Just for comparison i had another book in my library 11 hours long and i finished it in 2 days so 3 weeks of trying and couldn't finish it! I strongly recommend if you like the sound of this book download a sample and listen to the narration first! Over pronunciation of every word and syllable and the unnatural highs and lows absolutely ruined what, i suspect, would have been a great addition the genre.

Took a while to get through this

This wasn't a bad book by any means, but it wasn't great. It took me several sessions of listening to get through.
The plot was a good idea, and the odd few action scenes were well written, but each time it promised to get going, it just stalled and went back to being slow and a bit monotonous. Unfortunately the narration was also flat in places and this didn't help it. The expositions and descriptions were quite flat.
However I will say that the characters were well written and had good back stories and it was easy to understand the relationships between them. And the dialogue was a lot better than the narrative. The narrator was able to put some feeling into the characters and gave them all individual voices and accents and this gave the story a bit more likeability.

I won't say give it a miss because I believe everyone has to make their own opinion and should always read a story if the blurb / sample speaks to them. So if it sounds like something that you would like, give it a go.
