Taskforce operators Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill race to stop a global pandemic in this fast-paced thriller in the New York Times bestselling series.
Invented by nature and genetically manipulated by man, a highly lethal virus has just fallen into the wrong hands. Angered by sanctions placed against its nuclear program, a rogue state is determined to release the virus. The only thing standing in its way is the extralegal counterterrorist unit known as the Taskforce.
But as they follow the trail of the virus across Southeast Asia to the United States, the Taskforce soon learns that the enemy they face may not be the enemy they should fear...
Terrorists seek to cause mass devastation using a virus as a bio-weapon in bestseller Taylor's entertaining fourth Pike Logan thriller (after Enemy of Mine). The job of thwarting the terrorists falls to Grolier Recovery Services, a company Logan has set up to be independent of Taskforce, a technically "illegal" counterterrorist unit of the U.S. government. Logan's group traces an Iranian general, Malik Musavi, who's trying to acquire the virus, to Thailand, where one of their own, an agent known as Knuckles, has been imprisoned after an operation to tap into a police database. Musavi hopes to use a Chechen's fury at the West to persuade her to infect herself with the disease and then pass the plague on to others. While genre fans will find much that's familiar (Logan continues to struggle with his feelings toward attractive series regular Jennifer Cahill), clever plotting and solid prose set this above many similar military action novels.
