Typical Robert Ludlum story with lots of action and suspense. It is about someone possibly stealing smallpox virus from the Soviet Union and releasing it on the world.

The action never stopped in this, the second "COVERT ONE" novel. I really enjoyed this thriller, though I have to wonder about the number of corrupt individuals in high places, who continue to stick their heads out and dare someone to do something.

Second book of the series. Not as "good" as the ones co-authored by Gayle Lynds. International espionage/counterterrorism with a technological slant.

This audio book is 11 hours long. The story contains lots of International intrigue that kept the reader alert. The characters are varied and there is even time for a little romance. I enjoyed this book very much.

The specter of smallpox has been eliminated from the earth, right? Oh, but there are small amounts of the deadly stuff kept secure in the USA and Russia. Oh, really? In this book, a bit of the smallpox is smuggled out of Russia and sent straight to ... but that's the core of the plot and you'll have to read it for yourself. A fine plot, one that will keep you turning the pages.

Medical researcher and sometime spy Lt. Col. Jonathan Smith aided by CIA agent Randi Russell, British operative Peter Howell and ultrasecret spymaster Nathaniel Klein faces another villainous plot to unleash a deadly disease on an unsuspecting populace. Retired from the Army Medical Research Unit for Infectious Diseases after the death of his fiance, Smith heads to Venice to meet a Russian scientist who is killed by Sicilian mercenaries before he can warn Smith that a sample of smallpox is about to be stolen from a Russian bioresearch facility. Up against a global military-corporate conspiracy with moles at NASA, the Pentagon and the KGB, Smith follows the smallpox across the Atlantic to Houston Mission Control and beyond. The cinematic chase through changing landscapes and mounting body count gives the book its rapid pace, while insider politics, tradecraft and technical wizardry lend an extra kick.
