With US intelligence agencies wracked by internal power struggles and paralyzed by bureaucracy, the President was forced to establish his own clandestine group: Covert-One. It is only activated as a last resort, when the threat is on a global scale and time is running out.

In northern Uganda, an American special forces team is decimated by a group of normally peaceful farmers. Video of the attack shows even women and children possessing almost supernatural speed and strength, consumed with a rage that makes them immune to pain, fear, and all but the most devastating injuries.

Covert-One’s top operative, Army microbiologist Colonel Jon Smith, is sent to investigate the attack and finds evidence of a parasitic infection that for centuries has been causing violent insanity and then going dormant. This time, though, it’s different. The parasite had been purposely kept alive and crudely transmitted in acts of terrorism. Now the director of Iranian Intelligence is in Uganda trying to obtain this biological weapon in order to unleash it on the West.

Smith and his team are ambushed and cut off from all outside support just as they begin to suspect forces much more powerful than the Iranians are in play, forces that can be traced to Washington itself.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Lisa | 2/15/2014

    " LOVED this book. I was hesitant, not really liking someone else "riding the Ludlum train" like I thought Mr. Kyle Mills was, but I have to say, this was a very good book. Very "Robert Ludlum like". I now am going to go read the rest of Kyle Mills' books. Excellent!!! "

    " Not one of the better Covert One books. The whole effort seemed lackluster. I never really got into the characters and the name of the book didn't really seem to make sense. Every time the action tried to ramp up it seemed to drop off quickly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Eric | 2/13/2014

    " Another pretty good book in the continuing saga of Jon Smith and the Covert-One team. "

    " Though they annoyingly continue to call these books "co-written" years after Ludlum's death, Kyle Mills is a great author in his own right, and this is a great addition to the Covert One series. "
