Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For the past three decades Robert Ludlums bestselling novels have been enjoyed by hundreds of millions of readers worldwide and have set the standard against which all other thrillers are measured.  His Covert-One series has been among his most beloved creations. Now comes the latest thrilling novel in the series:

Robert Ludlums The Moscow Vector

 

At an international conference in Prague, Lt. Col. Jon Smith, an Army research doctor specializing in infectious diseases and secretly an agent attached to Covert-One, is contacted by a Russian colleague, Dr. Valentine Petrenko. Petrenko is concerned about a small cluster of mysterious deaths in Moscow and about the Russian governments refusal to release publicly any information or data on the outbreak. When the two meet, they are attacked by a group of mysterious men and Petrenko is killed. His notes and medical samples are lost, and Smith barely escapes with his life.

 At the same time, a series of government officials around the world are coming down with a mysterious, fast-acting virus with a 100% fatality rate.  These deaths are somehow related to the increasing militarism from the new Russian government, headed by the autocratic and ambitious President Victor Dudarev.  With few clues and precious little time, Smith and Covert-One must unravel this mysterious plot and find the mysterious figure who stands at the center of it all..

Synopsis:

In this thriller, Covert-One operative Lt. Col. Jon Smith must find a mysterious figure who stands at the center of a nefarious assassination plot.

Synopsis:

The thrilling new novel in the bestselling Covert-One series

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.
