Crit: ‘What a delicious mixture of politics, germ warfare, intrigue and excitement! Gripping and action packed, this book would make an excellent movie. It has a horrific and unfortunately real beginning which immediately grabs the reader's attention and the pace never flags. The interwoven themes, which require constant attention, reflect the stories of Robert Ludlum and Frederick Forsythe.'
