“I thoroughly loved reading Hybrid by Dr. Brian O’ Grady! This well written suspenseful thrilling novel will keep you on your toes waiting for what happens next. Move over Michael Crichton there is another medical thriller novelist on the block!"

– Gather

Seven years ago, Amanda Flynn returned from a Honduran camp as the sole survivor of a mysterious new virus known as EDH1. Most of its victims die a gruesome, agonizing death. Others become violent savages. But a precious few, like Amanda, survive . . . and change.

Amanda escaped from a three-month quarantine because the virus made her different, superior. She can sense things, do things, using only her mind – and these abilities tempt her to test their limits. To harm. Even, though she may resist, to kill. Now, an outbreak of violent deaths in a peaceful Colorado town leads Amanda to suspect that a mutated EDH1 has arrived in America. The virologists she warns want her back, for her immunity may be the only key to its defeat. But no lab can hold her. Not while she wields the power.

And now there is another. A man of menace: tall, amoral, relentless. His mission is nothing less than the end of human society – and the birth of a new order forged of his own will. He has the power, too. And, armed with his own store of virulent death, he is coming.

Combining the technological authority of The Andromeda Strain with the dark mystery of The X-Files, here is a heart-pounding thriller you’ll never forget.

Hybrid is a slick, tight thriller which when you step back and think about it, is scarily possible. I couldn’t put this book down… If you like Michael Crichton or Dean Koontz, this is the book for you!”
