""A genetic disease known as Brugada Syndrome kills its victims without warning, without symptom. When the President of the United States falls victim to a weaponized and "contagious "strain of the disease, the Chess Team--King, Queen, Rook, Knight and Bishop--are assigned to protect Sara Fogg, a CDC detective, as she journeys to the source of the new strain: the Annamite Mountains in Vietnam. Surrounded by Vietnam War era landmines, harsh terrain and more than one military force not happy about the return of American boots to the Ho Chi Minh trail, the fight for survival becomes a grueling battle in the humid jungle.
Pursued by VPLA Death Volunteers, Vietnam's Special Forces unit, the team's flight through a maze of archaic ruins reveals an ancient secret...a primal secret that may stop the disease from sweeping the globe--even as it threatens both the mission and their lives.
About the Author
Praise For Instinct…
Praise for Instinct
“Pulse was a video game in print form, and [Instinct] is a tribute to James Cameron’s film Aliens. Intense and full of riveting plot twists, it is Robinson’s best book yet, and it should secure a place for the Chess Team on the A-list of thriller fans who like the over-the-top style of James Rollins and Matthew Reilly.”
"If you like thrillers original, unpredictable and chock-full of action, you are going to love Jeremy Robinson's Chess Team. Instinct riveted me to my chair."
"Jeremy Robinson is a fresh new face in adventure writing and will make a mark in suspense for years to come."
–David L. Golemon, New York Times bestselling author of Ancients and Leviathan
"Instinct is a jungle fever of raw adrenaline that goes straight for the jugular."
--Thomas Greanias, New York Times bestselling author of The Atlantis Revelation and The Promised War
