A spy thriller novel against a backdrop of biological warfare
Posner's only novel, a techno-thriller set in the Cold War between the US and Soviet Union. It involves a highly mobile germ warfare strain, fast moving deadly infections, and a brutal fight to control the terror biological weapon between spies and double-agents inside both the CIA and KGB.
"Unusually effective….There is good procedural detective work, on an international scale, and a well-calibrated acceleration of the action until it's nonstop.
- Chicago Tribune
The matrix for Posner's first novel, a thriller whose development depends heavily on the author's convincing descriptions of the technology in intelligence work...Posner handles his material well. His descriptions move smartly; his characters...are convincing in their context; and his plot is constructed to satisfy demanding readers.
