At an international medical conference in Prague, Dr. Fiona Devin, an American scientist attached to the Department of Defense, is contacted by one of her Russian colleagues. Dr. Valentin Petrenko, a specialist in rare diseases, is concerned about a small cluster of deaths in Moscow but even more concerned by the Russian government's refusal to publicly release any information or data on the outbreak. When he meets with Devin to pass on his case notes and samples, the two are attacked; Petrenko is killed while Devin barely escapes with the notes and medical samples. Covert-One operative Lt. Col. Jon Smith is dispatched to Prague to get Devin and her information safely back to the U.S.

As Devin begins to analyze the information, a series of highly placed figures in the U.S. government become ill with a mysterious illness that bears a close resemblance to the disease described in Petrenko's notes. The disease is the perfect assassination tool: a bioweapon that, using each target's DNA, is undetectable, unstoppable, and incurable. With few clues and little time, Jon Smith must find the mysterious figure who stands at the center of this nefarious plot.

    " Another addition to the covert one series. not as good as the bourne series, still keeps you hooked. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nate | 2/18/2014

    " Ludlum has once again produced a typical action/adventure novel that despite being unsurprising in plot development and outcome is still an entertaining read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Louis Clark | 2/17/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. Quick paced lots of turns anda few surprises. Even though you know how it will end, the ride there is pretty good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rohit P | 2/6/2014

    " fast paced action packed thriller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 2/3/2014

    " I like Robert Ludlum, but for some reason, it takes me forever to get through one of his books. I have a tendency to read other books at the same time. I'll finish it eventually. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Perrin Pring | 1/31/2014

    " Pretty entertaining. Got better once you got through the first third. All around, a good Ludlum inspired book. I liked Randy Russel, but found John Smith a little too all American. His 'crooked grin, and rugged features,' along with his pithy Bondish remarks in the heat of battle, made me occasionally hope that he didn't survive whichever firefight he was in. I won't spoil the ending though. This book is awesome if you listen to it. Erik Bergmann is an awesome audio reader. His accents are amazing. While the book may not be the most impressive book on the market, Bergmann is the best voice actor I've ever listened to. His Irish accent for Fiona Devon is out of this world. I may start to choose my books on CD according to who is reading them, as opposed to who writes them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 12/16/2013

    " I usually like the Covert One series but this one seemed to drag on until the last few chapters. Too predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terresa | 12/13/2013

    " Not quite as good as the 'real' Ludlum but a fast read. Extreme action. Pretty far fetched stuff but fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheryl | 12/9/2013

    " This was a good old cold war type. It was a bit short on character development but the story was still good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sean | 11/15/2013

    " I would have given this one 3.5 stars if it was an option. An entertaining book but a little corny at times which robbed it of a 4 star quality. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kyle Wright | 7/27/2013

    " This was a great story. Good spy stuff. The main character Smith gets into some hairy situations. Not that the situations are believable but I found myself really worried and wondering how is he going to get out alive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Blake | 5/26/2013

    " good book nothing really stands out as wow but this is very enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter Skillen | 8/2/2012

    " Quite enjoyed this book. An easy read. Easy to follow. Speaks to the challenges of the defunct Soviet empire and the resultant power issues. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michelle | 7/17/2012

    " This was a terrible continuation of the John Smith story. They shouldn't have written this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Winnie | 6/11/2012

    " Another thrilling adventure for Colonel Jon Smith - fast-paced and exciting. If you are looking for great literature then don't bother but if you just want an enjoyable read then this is for you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ray | 4/23/2012

    " You get what you pay for and would expect with this book. It's a spy-thriller with all the requisite ingredients, a cold-war type threat, a mysterious disease, a hero spy-doctor, an evil billionaire villian, and their supporting casts. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marc Goodfellow | 12/29/2011

    " I like Ludlum, this you could tell without reading the cover was not him. "

    " A typical Ludlum book with lots of action and intrigue. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erwin | 5/24/2011

    " It's like fast food. If you're hungry for a spy story, it sort of works. Two of the Seven covert one stories are very good, but this one can be skipped. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James | 8/21/2010

    " This author just doesn't work for me. Poorly written -- just trying to cash in.... "
