Dr. Carmen Rodrigues, CDC’s Outbreak Task Force director, is on the hunt for a killer–– an airborne virus spreading from Florida across the States, gaining traction with each passing moment. Although she’ll never forget her one night with sexy bodyguard John Dozer in Afghanistan, his protective nature is one distraction she doesn’t need right now.

Ex-Army Intelligence officer John Dozer will put his life on the line for beautiful, independent Carmen. Every. Time. Even when she pushes him away. And now, with her struggling to contain an outbreak likely triggered by domestic bio-terrorists, maybe even insiders at the CDC, she needs him more than ever. He lost her once. He’ll never let that happen again.

A very intense and interesting story from Julie.” -Jacqueline A., NetGalley

By Jypsy August 18, 2019

Search and Destroy is actually a frightening story. The bioterrorism threat is very real, and the scenario presented in this book is entirely plausible. While I found the plot engaging, thrilling and sharply written, I lacked some background information that would have been helpful. I don't recom... ...more

By Kim July 31, 2019

By Cindy ~ July 24, 2019

And the mayhem continues in this 4th part of Outbreak Task Force series. John Dozer hasnt even recovered from his injuries from a bomb in the 3rd book when he's thrown in the middle of another outbreak – this time deadly strain of the measles.

This series really needs to be read in order as its o... ...more

By Linda July 24, 2019

Loved this book! This is the fourth book in the Outbreak Task Force series and is just as good, if not better, then the prior books in the series.

Loved it, loved it. This book is about a CDC doctor named Carmen and a homeland security agent named Dozer.

ARC REVIEW

Outbreak Task Force #4, I love this series! So far all the books can be read as a standalone this book picks up right after the events of book three and even though I have read it it took me part of chapter one to reacquaint myself with the characters and the situation but then again I... ...more

We finally get to see what all sexual tension between John and Carmen has come from! One hot and steamy encounter, miscommunication, conniving sexual predators and now their weird working dynamic has stacked up against our couple but all that tension and chemistry has to go somewhere and it's abo... ...more

"Almost" his boss should be a deterrent.

This hospital needs a metal detector.

I wish I had that memory technique.

At least she had enough sense to be wary.

How old is she?

I had no idea measles was so scary.

Rawley, who died and made you God?

Burn. Damn, girl!

What's with the high-protein meals?

I don't... ...more

By Amanda July 21, 2019

Not my favorite book lately but not horrible. Just a real basic hot and heavy love/lust story. Kinda basic but you really don’t ask books like this to be life changing. ...more

By Sandra July 22, 2019

What’s not to like about a romantic thriller with a bit of a Sci-Fi twist? Theoretically, it should be a blue ribbon winner but sometimes the recipe results don’t match up to the description, which was pretty much the case with “Search and Destroy” by Julie Rowe. The plot premise of a possible pa... ...more

By Mags August 18, 2019

Search and Destroy was a good book. That picks up pretty much from where Sleight of Hand left off with Homeland Security Liaison Officer John Dozer recovering in hospital from injuries he received when a bomb went off during a previous investigation, and when facing more threats to his life CDC d... ...more

By Miriam August 13, 2019

This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy.

At first, I felt like I was dropped in the middle of a story as there were references to a terrorist group and references to previous couples which having not read any previous books, I was missing details. As the story progresses, there is more of a... ...more

By Nicole August 22, 2019

Search and Destroy is the 4th book in the Outbreak Task Force series by author Julie Rowe. I would absolutely recommend reading the previous books in this series so you can get the most enjoyment from this one…Carmen and Dozer’s story.

This book, as in previous books in the series, has an outbreak... ...more

I received an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

When I was waiting for this ARC, I decided to read the previous book in the series. Each book can be read as a standalone since she gives enough backstory to not feel lost. I've enjoyed the medical/bioterrorism a... ...more

By Kelly August 09, 2019

Great story! I can't wait to read the previous books in this series even though this is considered a standalone novel. I didn't mind learning about the characters in a round-about way as the author did a good job of giving the back story as the suspense built in the book, but I like to follow alo... ...more

By Debbie August 21, 2019
