The Armageddon Complexby Ric Black
Synopses & Reviews
In all my years as a scientist, I never believed the experiments I was involved in would lead to so many people dying. I've even put my only son at risk.
Our lives are inexorably changed, coursing down a path that may see the very destruction of us all, should this virogene escape the confines of its sealed environment.
All my background, both moral and academic, tell me what I am doing is wrong, but how am I possibly going to stop it now? Can it be stopped? Will all this end in the loss of more lives?
Cody Jenkins' father, Ben, is a prominent biophysicist working under a government contract for a private foundation. His realm of expertise lies in the development of biological compounds that will lead to the creation of a genetically engineered super virus. Once created, however, the virus proves so deadly that it defies all biological and chemical means of slowing its devastating effects on its host subjects.
Because the research project that results in the discovery of the virus is government funded, the military believe they have the right to it, regardless of what the virus would mean for humanity; the Corsican Brotherhood wants to steal it for profit-thus begins a battle of wit, intrigue, and violence in which Cody becomes an innocent pawn.
