A deadly, incurable disease creeps silent through Chattanooga. And its victims aren't random. When inexplicable human rabies cases appear in Tennessee, disease ecologist Letty Duquesne jumps at the chance to trace the virus back to its source. But the closer Letty gets to finding the outbreak's origin, the further someone will go to stop her. With an unwanted promotion threatening to take Letty far from the fieldwork she loves, this outbreak feels like her last chance to make a difference. It's not something she can ignore, especially now. The spillover of zoonotic diseases to the human population is on the rise and violent animal attacks—like the one that killed her sister—are becoming all too common. Something in nature has gone very wrong. Local authorities would rather she go home, but Letty can track a source animal like no one else. With the help of disgraced detective Andrew Marsh, Letty follows the virus's epidemiological trail. But her every move is watched. And the source animal is closer than she thinks. Inhuman Acts is a pulse-pounding thriller. Gripping and intricately paced, Brooke L. French's debut novel will keep you on the edge of your seat.

I received an advance review copy for free, and am leaving this review voluntarily. Thank you Brooke French and Travelling Pages. I'm excited to be a part of this tour.

I am a huge fan of medical thrillers and this one did not disappoint! Inhuman Acts is an incredibly intriguing debut that will have your pulse racing and wanting more. In this book, inexplicable human rabies cases appear in Tennessee, disease ecologist Letty Duquesne jumps at the chance to trace the virus back to its origin.

I was intrigued by this book based on its description. I can’t say I’ve read another book about humans getting rabies and love how unique this story is. The author does an excellent job of describing the locations and surroundings, so you feel like you are there too. The characters are brilliantly written and have a level of depth that provides insight into who they are. The story is fast paced, and I was engaged from start to finish. I kept reading because I had to know how it would end. I like that the story wrapped up nicely.

I recommend this book to all medical thriller lovers!
