Overview

After 9/11 the US Government vowed that any similar attack on American soil would be thwarted, and the newly created Homeland Security knew that the only way to achieve this end was to have the very best intelligence.

A group of elite officers from the police, the FBI and the CIA are recruited to form a special branch within the new organisation, operating in deep cover, their contact with each other and with other agencies strictly compartmentalised. One of these is Brian Doyle, an NYPD detective, chosen for his dogged determination and deductive instincts - instincts which serve him and his masters well, because at the heart of the organization is one person ruthlessly using the carefully gathered intelligence to unleash a biological attack across the United States.

"Final Winter" was previously released in print form by Five Star Press in 2008.

Editorial Reviews

Publisher's Weekly
DuBois, known primarily for his Lewis Cole detective series, offers up a stand-alone thriller built around the threat of a massive anthrax terrorist attack... Points of view shift between the terrorists, who rush to implement their plan, and the good guys, who rush to stop the approaching horror but who have a mole buried deep within their ranks. The basic themes are familiar, but DuBois's execution is inventive, with plot twists good enough to keep readers whipping through the pages.
Harriet Klausner
The men meet in a back room to discuss the best way to approach the terrorist assault on America just days after 9/11. However, the mission planners failed to think beyond the short term goal as the only enemy in their minds is radical Islamists from the Middle East. However, Tiger Team draftee NYPD Detective Brian Doyle has proof that an American is planning a pandemic anthrax attack that could kill millions... Brian finds official obstacles and soon betrayal at the highest levels of government
