White Water, Black Death by Shaun Ebelthite (Book Review #373)

Whitewater is a thriller fiction book. The story is set on a cruise ship where it gets struck by an Ebola. Geneva Jones, the protagonist of the story, is a magazine editor on this cruise ship. As someone dies on this ship, a further investigation happens to occur in order to find out what is going on. The CEO of the cruise, Rachel, insists on it being a suicide.

As Geneva discovers how Ebola managed to get on the ship, the story begins to unravel, and its thriller side is exposed. Besides the fact that you are trapped and feel isolated in every shape and form when you are on a ship in the middle of the ocean, in this case, just imagine being trapped with Ebola!

I found the concept of the entire notion to be quite thrilling. The literature was in good standing, and the character development was spot on. I believe that since the author has a background in cruise journalism, he used that knowledge in creating a very realistic form of a storyline and I enjoyed that.

The world setting in this book was small, and I believe that worked in its favor. I believe the author emphasized more on the conceptual idea of the outbreak rather than building a bond or connection through the reader and its characters, however, that did not take away anything from enjoying the plot.

I believe anyone that enjoys a fiction thriller will appreciate this book.
