I mean, come on, who doesn't want to read an action/adventure novel with a crytozoologist and a special forces unit.

The high adventure of James Rollins combines with the gripping suspense of Scott Sigler in this second installment in the Jack Sigler Thriller 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.

Ah! I was drowning in heart pumping action with each word I read, with each ground stomping scene that flowed smoothly with each twist and turn.

This story was almost perfect for me.

I was so excited at the beginning of this novel because it seemed as though the story would be completely focused on the mission and I wouldn't have to read so much about how the female character(s) is/are perfect, impressive, blah...blah...blah... Should have known I'd have to put up with that same old scenario when it comes to male and females (>.<). Yep! I am sooooo completely anti-romance on any level at the moment (o.O)

But there was so much suspense and thrills in this story that I got my 'action fix.' This was a very creative world to be lost in. Great Story Telling!

Originally read 29/10/2011. The second in the Chess team thrillers, this one is set in Vietnam, with the team trying to track down the cure to a lethal virus that kills everyone it strikes. I really enjoyed it and am coming to love the dynamics of the team and the banter between them. I was a bit annoyed about the unveiling of Deep Blue's identity - not that we know, but who it was... a bit unrealistic to think that someone of his calibre would have the time to spend helping the team as he did in the first book. That aside, however, the book was great and I look forward to the next one.

Re-read (or listened to through Audible) 23/04/2013. If anything, the second time through was even better. Noting my review above, listening to the book this time through, it was soooo obvious who Deep Blue was, but hey, hindsight is a lovely thing. Jeffrey Kafer's narration truly bring already amazing characters to life in a way that almost makes me prefer listening to reading. Can't wait to start Threshold!

I just found this author. I love Matthew Reilly and James Rollins...and now I love Jeremy Robinson. His character development is excellent - his heroes are likable yet flawed and his villians are...villainous. I like the way he develops existing characters from book to book while adding new characters that are just as easy to connect to as his existing ones. His plots are fantastic...lots of action, a little science fiction. His writing style is great. All in all - Instinct, as well as the other Jack Sigler novels are well worth the investment in reading time!

I liked Jeremy Robinson's Instinct. The action was non-stop. The characters were fun. As with any adventure book, one must expect improbable encounters and escapes as well as some hollow characters. Books like Robinson's (and the adventure genre's modern day godfather, James Rollins), are meant to be entertaining, not works of modern literary art. The one thing I don't like about Instinct is that Neanderthals never lived in East Asia and they weren't hairy ape-like people. Neanderthals ranged over the Middle East and Europe, never as far east as India, never mind Vietnam. Evolutionary anthropologists have reconstructed Neanderthals and they looked a lot like Earnest Borgnine. Evolutionary anthropologists and biologists have said for decades that you could clean a Neanderthal up, put him in a business suit and let him go to work and nobody would blink twice. Neanderthals looked like shorter versions of us with bigger noses, a more muscular build, broader shoulders, and maybe a bigger brow ridge than some people have today. Neanderthals were most certainly were not ape-like at all. Anthropologists have recently found remains of a different species that lived in central Asia (the Denosovians)but, to be on the safe side, Robinson should have made his evolutionary throwbacks Homo erectus because that species was all over east Asia. To be fair, Robinson's ideas about human-neanderthal interbreeding are actually true. Recent DNA studies have shown that modern humans have genes that regulate physical appearance and the immune system that come from Neanderthals. Finally, fossil evidence and archaeological finds suggest that the last of the "pure" Neanderthals died out on Gibraltar about 24,000 years ago. Whatever is left of the Neanderthals lives on in a few handfuls of genes in the modern human gene pool.

Overall, this is a fun book for some light reading. I liked the book a lot because it was briskly paced and entertaining. Because I know about Neanderthals, the portrayal of that species did trip me up a little. If the anthropology had been more correct, I would have given it five stars. If you know anything about human evolution, simply suspend disbelief as well as you can, sit back, and enjoy the ride.

The chess team series is one my favorite series. And this book is one of the best.
The team goes to Vietnam to find cure for a deadly disease. While trying to find the cure, they have to deal with the threat of the disease striking them down, two different military forces and something that none would expect.
The chess team characters are amazing. Each one has a different background and different personality. But they are all the best at what they do.

Jeremy Robinson doesn't disappoint! After stumbling on these books by accident, I find I am hooked on the combinationo of military valor and the spine tingling terror of the unknown! Instinct has the Chess Team and a CDC scientist in Vietnam searching for the cure for a little known and previously rare genetic Brugada Syndrome that suddenly strikes down primarily healthy males. Someone has discovered a way to weaponize the Syndrome and has attempted to assinate President Duncan wiith it. When the Team arrives in Vietnam, they discover a tribe of Neanderthals whose males have fallen victim to the syndrome and are in search of new fathers for their tribe to contiue, as well as an American who has begun his own 'family' of hybrids and wants to prevent the rest of the world from discovering them. An exciting action packed read as the Team battles to obtain the cure and live to get it back to the US.
