Riassunto: Dr. James Kegan, a world-renowned scientist specializing in germ warfare, has vanished from his upstate New York home. But this is no ordinary missing-persons case. Kegan has left behind an unidentified dead man with a .22 caliber hole in his skull-and a contact trail that leads to an alleged terrorist cell.
Unraveling the mystery is a job for Kegan's best friend, NSA operative Charlie Dean. His mission is to infiltrate the scientist's circle of associates and decipher Kegan's confidential research. Dispatched to cover Charlie is Delta Force trooper Lia Francesca. The trail leads them to the core of a widespread killer fever that's been dormant for centuries-and its link to a virus that's quickly spreading victim by victim. With time running out Charlie and Lia must find Kegan, uncover his secrets, cut a terrorist threat to the quick, and stop the unimaginable outbreak of a new biological nightmare.

Praise for the novels of Stephen Coonts
"Gripping...Coonts's naval background and his legal education bring considerable authority to the story, and the narrative is loaded with detailed information about terrorist networks, modern weaponry, and international intrigue...the action is slam-bang"--Publishers Weekly
"The master of the techno-thriller spins a bone-chilling worst-case scenario involving international spies, military heroics, conniving politicians, devious agencies, a hijacked nuclear sub, lethal computer hackers, currency speculators, maniac moguls, and greedy mercenaries that rival Clancy for fiction-as-realism and Cussler for spirited action... [Coonts] never lets up with heart-racing jet/missile combat, suspenseful submarine maneuvers and doomsday scenarios that feel only too real, providing real food for thought in his dramatization of the missile-shield debate."-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Fans of Coonts and his hero Grafton will love it. Great fun."-Library Journal
"Coonts's action and the techno-talk are as gripping as ever."-Kirkus Reviews
"Thrilling roller-coaster action. Give a hearty welcome back to Adm. Jake Grafton."
-The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Move over Clancy, readers know they can count on Coonts."-Midwest Book Review
"The author gives us superior suspense with a great cast of made-up characters...But the best thing about this book is Coonts's scenario for turning China into a democracy."
--Liz Smith, The New York Post
"A high-octane blend of techno-wizardry [and] ultraviolence...[Coonts] skillfully captures the postmodern flavor of Hong Kong, where a cell phone is as apt as an AK-47 to be a revolutionary weapon."-USA Today
"Will be enjoyed by Coonts's many fans...Coonts has perfected the art of the high-tech adventure story."-Library Journal
"Coonts does a remarkable job of capturing the mood of clashing cultures in Hong Kong."
"Filled with action, intrigue, and humanity."-San Jose Mercury News
"Enough Tomahawk missiles, stealth bombers, and staccato action to satisfy [Coonts's] most demanding fans." -USA Today
"[A] gripping and intelligent thriller."-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Perhaps the best of Stephen Coonts's six novels about modern warfare."
"Coonts delivers some of his best gung-ho suspense writing yet."-Kirkus Reviews
"Dramatic, diverting action...Coonts delivers."--Booklist
