I enjoyed this title (between winces) - Ken Follett is a master of suspense and plotting. But the main character, who is supposed to be an amazing expert in security, is a complete bonehead who fails to take the most elementary precautions while guarding an incredibly deadly virus. She (and the omniscient narrator) are constantly assuring us that the security measures are "state of the art" and the "best that is humanly possible". If that's true, we are all doomed. This security director allows unescorted visitors, doesn't change passwords, allows "tailgating" through security checkpoints, and doesn't review the company security software even though it was written by a known criminal.
A little realism would be nice. Its hard not to want to see the "heroine" go to jail for criminal negligence.
Read "Flight of the Hornet" first, if you haven't read either. Much better.
