A Suspenseful Thriller

The third installment of the Sarah series is, in its own way, the best. The action in this one revolves around experimental germ warfare and government coverups. Hmmmm, sounds just a little too close to reality. The omnipresent Mr. Harris becomes truly scary in this story, thanks to the superb voice of Robin Bowerman. And Sarah is forced to make a truly terrible choice between competing emergencies. The whole is played at just the right emotional pitch. So what keeps it from being higher than a 7? A bit more dialogue than is necessary at some points, for starters. Also, a couple of improbabilities such as Harris's complicated trap in the underground. However, the good far outweighs the bad in this production.
