From the Publisher:
For over thirty years, Robert Ludlum has been acknowledged as the master of international suspense and intrigue. In 2000, Ludlum managed to raise the bar yet again with his widely acclaimed bestsellers The Prometheus Deception and The Hades Factor, the first novel in his exciting Covert-One series. Now Covert-One is back, in a novel that could only have come from the imagination of the world's greatest storyteller.

"What they're going to do, I never would have believed it. It's insanity!" They were the final words spoken by Yuri Danko, an officer in the medical division of Russia's security service, before his body was ripped apart by a spray of assassins' bullets. In possession of Danko's classified papers, Covert-One operative Jon Smith and CIA undercover agent Randi Russell have unearthed a terrifying global conspiracy that threatens to unleash a plague of immeasurable proportions. A Serb terrorist has been dispatched from Russia to spirit hazardous vials of deadly bacteria into the United States. His mission: deliver it to an unknown American government agent-- a shadowy figure whose own motives for acquiring the bioweapon are made all the more unfathomable when both men are found murdered, and the strain is stolen. Now Smith and Russell must track it down, find the madman who possesses it, and stop him before he holds a defenseless world hostage with the power to render the human race extinct.

Author Bio
Robert Ludlum
Robert Ludlum attended private schools in Connecticut before pursuing a career as an actor in New York City as a teenager. He joined the Marines when he was 18, returning to Connecticut two years later to attend Wesleyan University, where he graduated in 1951 with a B.A. in fine arts. His acting career continued throughout the '50s, and included both stage and television roles, as well as lucrative voiceovers for companies such as Tums. In 1969 he became a full-time writer and devoted his energies to producing international thrillers often based around government conspiracies and the innocent victims they tend to swallow up. Ludlum's fans enjoy the quick pace and growing suspense that characterize his most popular novels, such as his Bourne trilogy, "The Scarlatti Inheritance," and "The Materese Circle." Having sold more than 220 million copies worldwide of his thrillers, Ludlum passed away in 2001at the age of 73.
