The Jakarta Pandemic by Steven Konkoly


“Love Konkoly; the new Clive Cussler” Amazon reviewer

“I never read a book so fast. This book grabs you right away and had my adrenaline flowing through the whole book!” Amazon reviewer

“The book just pulled you in from the beginning. And, there was a scene which also brought me to tears.” Amazon reviewer

“The Jakarta Pandemic is a terrifying, cautionary tale that explores the depths of human desperation and its unremitting influence on our decisions.” Amazon reviewer


Cases of a highly lethal virus appear in major cities around the globe. Most ignore the warning signs.

Alex Fletcher, Iraq War veteran, has read the signs for years. He understands the unique dangers of a pandemic flu and has taken the necessary steps to prepare. With his family and home prepared to endure an extended period of seclusion, Alex thinks he’s ready for the pandemic. He’s not even close.

The lethal H16N1 virus rapidly spreads across the nation, stretching the fragile bonds of society to the breaking point. Schools close, grocery stores empty, fuel deliveries stop, hospitals start turning away the sick…riots engulf the cities. As hostility and mistrust engulfs his idyllic Maine neighborhood, Alex quickly realizes that the H16N1 virus will be the least of his problems.

***The sequel, The Perseid Collapse, is now available***

“It delivers a vicious punch of violence and heroism for the reader to endure and admire. I could hardly put The Jakarta Pandemic down until I finished it.” – Amazon reviewer

“The tension builds as difficult choices are made, when no good options seem to be available. I found certain segments to be uncomfortably realistic, at times creepy in the way you could feel things closing in around the family.” – Amazon reviewer

“I found the setting to be a refreshing change from other PA novels. Stories in this genre tend to focus on the world at large or center on a group of people traveling on a journey to find safe harbor. This novel centers on one family hunkered down in their home and how they interact with their neighbors on their street. I was quite impressed with the level of research put into this novel, the author clearly did his homework.” – Richard Stephenson, author of the critically acclaimed New America series.

“It makes you think just how prepared you really are for any kind of emergency. It makes you question your resolve in a potential crisis. How far are you willing to go to protect your loved ones? Every day that goes by, these characters have to question what is right and what is wrong. Take the trip thru this book. You won’t be disappointed.” – Amazon reviewer

“Pay attention as you may learn a few things in this book that could help you make the best of an emergency situation. For that matter some of the info in this book may very well save your life.” – Amazon reviewer

“Anyone who has relished running to the hardware store before a big storm to stock up on essentials will be drawn to Steve Konkoly’s intricately-researched and drawn breakdown of our supply systems, and transfixed by his description of what it takes to survive six months of enforced isolation behind the locked (booby-trapped, draped and shuttered) doors of one’s own home.” – Amazon reviewer
