Dr. Grace Llewellyn quotes Oppenheimer as her creation takes its first breath. Moments later, a US military strike team hits her laboratory in suburban Maryland. Markus Stebbings is hiding terminal brain cancer, hoping to remain alive to die for something that matters. The mission to destroy a domestic terrorist cell in possession of a nuclear bomb sounds like the opportunity he is looking for, until he realizes that his targets are not terrorists and that what they have is something infinitely more dangerous than a bomb.

This story grabs you from the very first and keeps the action going through the end. this book also presents some interesting ethical dilemmas that I have come to know and appreciate from this author.

many of the stories came across ham-fisted and it wasn't particularly inspiring listening to this book. it also doesn't help that it shares a title with another book that I was looking for when I downloaded it thinking that I found the book written in 1984 that I was looking for.
