    Guy Carson is a brilliant scientist at GeneDyne, one of the world's foremost biochemical companies. When he is transferred to Mount Dragon, GeneDyne's high-security genetic engineering lab, his good fortune seems too good to be true.

    Carson soon finds that it is. He learns that GeneDyne geneticists are tinkering with a common virus with an eye on the enormous profit to be had from a cure for the flu. Their cure involves permanently altering DNA in humans. What's more, Mount Dragon harbors another secret that puts the world at horrifying risk.

    Overall

    While this is only the second Preston/Child novel I have listened to, it is quite good. Following the harrowing action of Guy Carson trying to make "X-Flu" safe while people around him die or become deranged, Preston and Child always seem to get the details right enough to make you understand why this is a desperate time. If for no other reason than to argue bio-ethics in a fictional setting, this is a wise choice for the average audio-book listener. My only drawback is that it is 15 hours long and you are wondering who will be left at the end of 15 hours from this dread virus.
    A+ for effort and B for the voices used, but hey, we can't get perfection every time!
