The topical subject matter of this smoothly written book could easily be tomorrow's news headline. A mad Japanese scientist provides the credible enemy, in a setting that reminded me of Ian Flemming's DR.NO. To keep this evil enemy from wiping out humanity w/ the most potent bio weapon of all, a group of US Navy SEALS, a reluctant female scientist, and an eclectic mix of veterans unite to save mankind. I wouldn't be surprised if a movie version is upcoming, as this story moves w/ a fluid ease that often appears to be scripted. Bravo, Mr. Henrick for a good read!
