As Devin begins to analyze the information, a series of highly placed figures in the U.S. government become ill with a mysterious illness that bears a close resemblance to the disease described in Petrenko's notes. The disease is the perfect assassination tool: a bioweapon that, using each target's DNA, is undetectable, unstoppable, and incurable. With few clues and little time, Jon Smith must find the mysterious figure who stands at the center of this nefarious plot.

The Moscow Vector is a competant novel that sticks to its genre. That said, the book is unfortunately quite predictable especially to those who have read Larkin/Ludlum previously. Quite political at times with characters mirroring those of today's world leaders, the book should have maintained a bit more independent focus. As it were, the story mired itself in an immutable disbelief on the reader's part given the farfetched nature of the schemes. Also the book's jingoism gets a little old especially in the context of the us-vs.-them mentality espoused by the author.
However, being farfetched and patriotic (weak use of the term) is what these books are all about, so do not let that dissuade you from reading the novel. If you like Larkin, then I think you will enjoy this offering.
I prefer to listen. If it's the same reader you look forward to the story.
Well written. Keeps you wanting more.
If there were only time, yes.
This book would be much better and shorter if the author had left out the numerous adjectives. How many times can one book claim the character said something "grimly." or shrugged quietly. On the plus side the reader did well with the accents in particular, the American voices were superb. Someone needs to give Erik Bergmann
a real book to read. In the end I couldn't wait till it was over. It drove me crazy. Ludlum was a genius compared to this. Save your money.
overall a good story with good descriptions of characters, places and events. it is tied together nicely so that it is easy to follow. a couple of parts in the book did not sit well, otherwise it was entertaining...
