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.

    " Like the first in the Covert One series, The Cassandra Compact features (somewhat) Jonathan Smith. The complex, and far-fetched plot, and the array of good-guys/bad-guys that demand a scorecard to keep straight, make for a less than satisfying read. Ludlum, who died shortly before publication, co-wrote the book and likely had less influence than his name in the authorship indicates. "

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

    " Robert Ludlum was a favorite of mine years ago. I enjoyed reading him for the first time in several years. This one is the spys/ traitors / good guys and a virus, making you not wanting to stop reading at the end of each chapter. So, I didn't. However, not as "on the edge of your seat" as The Bourne Identity or Bourne Ultimatum. "

    " I listened to an abridged audio version. Good story, the the abridgement made the timeline seem unrealistic. Maybe the unabridged version has the same problem "
