It’s the second decade of the twenty-first century, and terrorism has escalated almost beyond control. The Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem has been blown to bits by extremists, and, in retaliation, thousands have died in another major attack on the United States. The War on Terror has reached a deadly stalemate. Now the FBI has been dispatched to deal with a new menace. A plague targeted to ethnic groups—Jews or Muslims … or both—has the potential to wipe out entire populations. But the FBI itself is under political assault. There’s a good chance agents William Griffin, Fouad Al-Husam, and Jane Rowland will be part of the last class at Quantico. As the young agents hunt a brilliant homegrown terrorist, they join forces with veteran bio-terror expert Rebecca Rose. But the plot they uncover—and the man they chase—prove to be far more complex than anyone expects.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Thought-provoking… Bear’s near-future science is, as always, eerily plausible, and while he doesn’t stint on sharp criticism of political infighting and its potential to hinder antiterrorism efforts, his would-be terrorists become surprisingly sympathetic.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “This chillingly plausible story displays Bear’s storytelling gifts to their fullest: his ability to extrapolate from current technologies and political trends; his knack for creating flesh-and-bone characters; his capacity for keeping us on the edges of our seats. His legion of fans will be lining up for this one, and the novel’s cross-genre appeal should guarantee it an even wider readership than usual.”


  • “War-on-terror heroics and scary drawing board technologies will keep readers on the edge of their seats…High voltage; high velocity.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

    " Greg Bear is an excellent science fiction writer. This is a bit off his normal stuff but very interesting. if you want to see the possible future of terrorism, this is the book...scary. "

    " I am a huge fan of Greg Bear's science fiction. But this "near future" fiction novel was not nearly as good as his hard core sci-fi novels. He included far too much unnecessary detail and divergent plot lines that really had no relevance. It was tough to get through this, but I made it halfway and then realized that I didn't want to waste any additional time on a book I was not enjoying. I love that his writing is geared toward those of us who love science, but this particular novel just didn't grip me like his sci-fi novels have. I wasn't invested in the plot or any of the characters and had to force myself to get as far as I did. "

    " Griff, an FBI agent goes into a terrorists barn that might be filled with deadly explosives in order to search for the explosive and other clues. He had the option to go in the barn alone or with someone and he chose to go alone to avoid his sone gettign hurt. "

    " While there's plenty of science from this sometimes sci-fi writer, this is a geo-political thriller from the Tom Clancy school, though much more concisely, and dare I say, better, written. The plot and characters were really good, and I will definitely look at more of his books in this vein. I was a tiny bit frustrated by the ending, but overall, a good page-turner. "
