Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The #1 bestselling master of suspense and international intrigue continues to set the standard against which all other thrillers are measured with his expertly plotted, pulse-pounding Covert-One series.

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 one of his Russian colleagues. Dr. Valentine Petrenko is concerned about some unexplained deaths in Moscow, and the governments refusal to go public with any information about the outbreak. When the two meet, they are attacked by a group of mysterious men. Petrenko is killed, and his notes and medical samples are lost. Smith barely escapes with his life.

With few clues and precious little time, Smith and Covert-One must unravel this vicious plot and find who—or what—is at the center of it all. Before its too late…
