Publisher Comments:

In Robert Ludlum's The Cassandra Compact, Lt. Colonel Jon Smith, currently working as a medical researcher, is contacted by a Russian colleague with an urgent request that they meet in Venice in ten days. When they meet, however, his colleague is killed almost instantly in a hail of automatic gunfire but not before he passes on to Smith the vital intelligence – someone is out to steal Russia?s store of the smallpox virus. Completely eradicated, smallpox is the deadliest of viruses and could well cause an epidemic of unheard of proportions should it be unleashed on the population at large. Smith, with the help of his colleagues at Covert-One, must prevent the virus from being stolen. But his adversaries are several steps ahead of him and now he must find and stop the conspirators before they unleash Armageddon upon the world.

Synopsis:

Lt. Colonel Jon Smith and his colleagues at Covert-One must find and stop conspirators who are out to unleash Armageddon upon the world. A Russian friend informs them that someone is out to steal the country's store of the smallpox virus and may start an epidemic of untold proportions.

Synopsis:

What they're going to do, I never would have believed it…These were among the final words spoken by Yuri Danko, an officer in the medical division of Russias security service, before his body was ripped apart by a spray of assassins bullets. Dankos confidential appointment in Venice with Covert-One operative Jon Smith might have ended in death—but his secret didnt die with him…

 Now, in possession of Dankos classified papers, Smith and CIA undercover agent Randi Russell have unearthed a terrifying global conspiracy. A Serb terrorist, backed by Russians, is on a mission to spirit hazardous vials of deadly bacteria to a U.S. government agent—a shadowy figure whose motives for acquiring the bioweapon are made all the more unfathomable when both men are found murdered—and the strain is stolen. Time is running out for Smith and Russell to track it down, find the madman who possesses it, and stop him before he holds a defenseless world hostage with the power to render the human race extinct.
