Yuri Danko, a deep-cover Russian asset for Covert-One, is on the run. His last communication was a cryptic and urgent plea for extraction. With no hint of what could have driven Danko to such extreme action, operative Jon Smith is sent to the pre-arranged meeting place in Venice to bring Danko out. Days later, Danko arrives at the rendezvous - but before he can reveal what he knows, he is ripped apart by a spray of assassins' bullets.


With only some scant clues left behind by Danko to go on, John Smith quickly concludes that someone is out to do the unthinkable: steal a sample of smallpox from Russia's cache of bioweapons. The deadliest of viruses, if a new mutation of smallpox were developed and released, it could cause an epidemic of unparalleled destruction.


Working to stop the theft, Covert-One finds the adversaries are several steps ahead of them. The virus is smuggled out of Russia to the United States. Now Jon Smith and his colleagues must unravel the mystery of the Cassandra Compact, overcome their powerful and invisible opponents, and recover or destroy the virus - before the power of Armageddon falls into the hands of a madman.

    " interesting book to read about conspiracy, but i more interest how can biotechnology could be so scary and dangerous in the hand of unresponsible scientist, and how amazing is the virus "

    " It started off slow and I almost put it down, glad I didn't it was a very exciting 2nd half. "

    " A decent book but not up to Ludlum's usual par. Smallpox has been virtually wiped out except for a small amount in Russia and the CDC in Atlanta. A small amount is stolen from Russia and by very confusing means is smuggled into the secret lab of a pharaceutical conglomeratein Hawaii. It is chemically altered to make the smallpox more virulent but the biggest mutation can only be made in micro-gravity. This is where Ludlum brought in too many characters as the bad guys get the sample aboard the space shuttle Discovery and into orbit where the final mutations are completed by the chief biological scientist aboard. The majority of the action in the book takes place at the end of the book but then the epilogue leaves the reader hanging. As I said, a good book but if you want Ludlum at his best read The Bourne trilogy. "

    " This is also a good read, like The Hades Factor (Covert-One #1) - only that it gets better. "
