Review: Warehouse 13: A Touch of Fever by Greg Cox

Warehouse 13: A Touch of FeverThe Unknown has an address...

Hidden away in the Badlands of South Dakota, Warehouse 13 is a top-secret repository for historical artifacts imbued with dangerous supernatural properties.  Secret Service agents Pete Lattimer and Myka Berin are ever on the lookout for loose artifacts threatening to ruin the world's day.  Their mission:  "Snag it, bag it, tag it."

Reports of a genuine psychic healer, along with a simultanous epidemic of mysterious illnesses, lead Myka and Pete on a hazardous investigation that stretches from a carnival sideshow back to the blody history of the Civil War.  But when Pete is infected with a deadly disease, Myka nd the rest of the team, including Artie Nielsen and Claudia Donovan, must track down a pair of cursed gloves - before a madman unleashes a virulent plague upon America!

Received from the publisher for review.

This one gets three stars.  I am by no means a hardcore Warehouse 13 fan but I do enjoy the show and found this intriguing.  It was, like most books based on a television series, a solid independent story that was true to the television show and its characters.  This was firmly along the lines of a Doctor Who, Torchwood, or Eureka novel - entertaining and gives you your fix between seasons.  This is highly recommended for fans of the television series.

★★☆☆ = Liked It

Love the show, not sure why I never thought to look for books.
