Publisher's Summary

In remote pockets of the Third World, a deadly virus is quietly sweeping through impoverished farming villages and shanty towns with frightening speed and potency. Meanwhile, in Washington, a three-word message left in a safe-deposit box may be the key to stopping the crisis - if, that is, Charles Mallory, a private intelligence contractor and former CIA operative, can decipher the puzzle before time runs out.

What Mallory begins to discover are the traces of a secret war with a bold objective - to create a new, technologically advanced society. With the help of his brother Jon, an investigative reporter, can he break the story to the world before it is too late - before a planned "humane depopulation" takes place?

As the stakes and strategies of this secret war become more evident, the Mallory brothers find themselves in a complex game of wits with an enemy they can’t see: a new sort of superpower led by a brilliant, elusive tactician who believes that ends justify means.

    "might have been better with another narrator"

    maybe it's just me, but I can't stand narrators who embellish what they're reading as if to give themselves a self-important air. it's hard to explain, but this guy does it bigtime. on a more concrete note, there are all kinds of YouTube examples one could listen to -- if one were a supposedly professional narrator -- and an online dictionary even gives a clickable audio pronunciation, so why does Peter Berkrot continually say OlduVAY? Here's a free tip, Pete: if you want to sound self-important and super-knowledgeable, don't telegraph your ignorance like that. Olduvai Gorge isn't just any old place. It's the "The Cradle of Mankind.” You could look it up. Maybe this seems like a nit, but when a narrator clearly -- and literally -- doesn't know what he's talking about, the credibility of the book as a whole takes a serious hit. That may be subjective, but hey, these are AUDIObooks, and the experience of listening *is* subjective.

    Story
    "Decreasing The World's Population"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes--because it is one of the most spellbinding books that I have ever read/listened to!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    By the plot's many twists and turns. One minute everything is seemingly OK--the next the hero's in trouble again.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the brothers finally meet:again after many years apart


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "Just Suppose"


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent reader! Hard words to pronounce throughout the book, but he didn't stumble a single time. Sorry, don't remember his name.
