In Tom Clancy's Op-Center: God of War, after the devastating outbreak of a killer super virus, the Black Wasp Team must prevent America's enemies from gaining access to the most dangerous weapon the world has ever seen.
The passengers and crew on an Airbus en route to Australia suddenly begin coughing up blood and hemorrhaging violently as the plane plunges to the ground. There are no survivors.
A luxury yacht in the South Indian Sea blows up, and a lone woman escapes the contagion that has inexplicably killed everyone else on the boat.
A helicopter whose occupants have been stricken by an unknown illness crashes into a bridge in South Africa, killing motorists and pedestrians.
The world is facing a devastating bio-terror event, and a game of brinksmanship gets underway as the major powers jockey for position: China sends a naval flotilla to seek the source of the plague and find a way to weaponize it, while Russia maneuvers quietly on the sidelines to seize the deadly prize in its quest to regain an empire. Back in Washington D.C., Chase Williams and his top-secret Black Wasp special ops team must find out who is behind these deadly attacks before war is unleashed—and millions of innocent lives are lost.
The crash of an airliner, whose passengers were coughing up blood, onto the rocky shore of a largely uninhabited island off the coast of South Africa kick-starts Rovin's solid seventh entry in the series created by Tom Clancy and Steve Pieczenik (after 2019's Sting of the Wasp). In Fort Belvoir, Va., former Op-Center director Chase Williams, who's settling into his new job at the Defense Logistics Agency, the largest hub of black ops in the federal government, investigates the mystery of the downed jet and discovers a biological agent was involved. A toxin created years before was buried on the island and has recently been released. The race is then on to find and collect this weapon of mass destruction. The Chinese are first in line, and Williams sends in a team to stop them. Meanwhile, thieves have already collected a couple of the vials of the deadly toxin and set out to use them for their own nefarious purposes. Rovin capably orchestrates all the players en route to the explosive climax. The faraway location adds an extra dimension to the somewhat tired bio-terror plot. Tom Clancy fans will have no reason to complain.
