Publisher's Summary

Dr. James Kegan, a world-renowned scientist specializing in germ warfare, has vanished from his upstate New York home. But this is no ordinary missing-persons case. Kegan has left behind an unidentified dead man with a .22 caliber hole in his skull - and a contact trail that leads to an alleged terrorist cell.

Unraveling the mystery is a job for Kegan's best friend, NSA operative Charlie Dean. His mission is to infiltrate the scientist's circle of associates and decipher Kegan's confidential research. Dispatched to cover Charlie is Delta Force trooper Lia Francesca. The trail leads them to the core of a widespread killer fever that's been dormant for centuries - and its link to a virus that's quickly spreading victim by victim. With time running out Charlie and Lia must find Kegan, uncover his secrets, cut a terrorist threat to the quick, and stop the unimaginable outbreak of a new biological nightmare.

Special ops: listen to another Deep Black thriller.

An excellent read

I really enjoyed this book. It keeps your interest and isn't overdone. He has some new gadgets used in the spy business that I haven't seen in other books. Whether real or not, they are believable. The narration is excellent. Overall I highly recommend this if you like intelligence mysteries.

Narrator was bad - goofy voices

Don't bother with this one - weak story and bad narration. I would give it a pass
