In the late fall of 2013, a lethal pandemic virus emerges from the Islamic Republic of Indonesia (IRI) and rages unchecked across every continent. When the Jakarta Flu threatens his picture-perfect Maine neighborhood, Alex Fletcher, Iraq War veteran, is ready to do whatever it takes to keep his family safe. As a seasoned sales representative for Biosphere Pharmaceuticals, makers of a leading flu virus treatment, Alex understands what a deadly pandemic means for all of them. He particularly knows that strict isolation is the only guaranteed way to protect his family from the new disease.

With his family and home prepared for an extended period of seclusion, Alex has few real concerns about the growing pandemic. But as the deadliest pandemic in human history ravages northern New England, and starts to unravel the fabric of their Maine neighborhood, he starts to realize that the flu itself is the least of his problems.

A mounting scarcity of food and critical supplies turns most of the neighbors against him, and Alex is forced to confront their unexpected hostility before it goes too far. Just when he thinks it can't get any worse, the very face of human evil arrives on Durham Rd and threatens to destroy them all. Alex and his few remaining friends band together to protect the neighborhood from a threat far deadlier than the flu, as they edge closer to the inevitable confrontation that will test the limits of their humanity.

    " I love the genre of the pandemic; potential apocalyptic. I enjoyed the realism of this story, but the lack of relatable characters made it hard for me to get lost in this book. The characters seemed to lack depth and didn't seem to develop as the book went on. While I did enjoy the book because of the subject matter; there was a lack of real suspense to the story. "

    " I enjoyed reading Jakarta Pandemic. It really gets you thinking about the possibility of this unfolding right in your own neighborhood. I could see this happening and no one listening until it was too late!! It is very realistic and portrays a very accurate picture of what people could and probably would do if this ever happened. I enjoyed the main character, Alex's, personality and thoughts throughout the book. His opinions seem to accurately reflect those of a former Marine who has returned from deployment. A brief mention and hints of PTSD of the main character, Alex, show up throughout the book as well. I have read some reviews which challenge the writer's choice to make the main character judgmental with regards to certain people throughout the story. However, I actually appreciate those touches which make Alex even that more realistic as those would be some thoughts and opinions a former marine returning from deployment in the Middle East would feel. I have and continue to recommend this book to others. I finished this book very quickly and read the entire thing on my iphone. I am really impressed by the fact that the author chose to self-publish this book and look forward to reading more from him in the future! "

    " Very similar plot idea to the movie Contagion, but on a more localized level with more action. Follows a former military drug salesman as he and his family prepare for a flu pandemic and how they're able to ride out the situation. "

    " I agree with others who found the book: screenplay-like, put-down-able, (or STUPID and/or irritating, like me!). Parts of the book were exciting but the momentum wasn't sustained. "
