A deadly outbreak. Origin unknown. A race against time to prevent catastrophe.
Congo Variant is the new, fast-paced thriller from the author of the best-selling Hurst Chronicles series.
Dr. Alice Bishop, a promising rookie in the field of infectious diseases, is assigned to a scientific expedition exploring deep within the Congo rainforest. Her mission: to trace the origins of a mysterious outbreak before war engulfs central Africa. As she descends deeper into the unknown what she finds is more terrifying than anyone dared fear.
Half a world away, MI6 operative Blake Harris, embedded in a United Nations inspection team, probes the truth behind Iraq's weapons program as the Allies' patience with Saddam Hussein begins to wane. Harris must embark on his most dangerous mission yet searching for evidence in war-torn Iraq before time runs out.
As their paths intertwine, Harris and Bishop stumble upon a terrifying plot that could plunge the Western World into chaos with unimaginable consequences.
Congo Variant is the gripping first instalment of an action-packed series that takes you on a thrilling journey through Iraq and Central Africa. A story set against the backdrop of the explosive events leading up to Operation Desert Fox and the Allied bombing of Baghdad in 1998.
