Overview

On one evening in Washington, DC, several high-ranking members of government disappear in a mass kidnapping. Among the kidnapped is Nick Rendel, a computer software coding expert in charge of drone programming and strategy. He is the victim with the most dangerous knowledge, including confidential passwords and codes that are used to program the drones. If revealed, his kidnappers could reprogram the drones to strike targets within the United States.

Jon Smith and the Covert One team begin a worldwide search to recover the officials, but as the first kidnapping victims are rescued, they show disturbing signs of brainwashing or mind-altering drugs. Smith's investigation leads him to Fort Detrick, where a researcher, Dr. Laura Taylor, had been attempting to create a drug to wipe memory from soldiers suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome. But Dr. Taylor's research was suspended almost a year ago, when she was placed in a mental institution. Now, if Smith doesn't figure out the brainwashing drug, and track down the kidnapped Nick Rendel, the kidnappers will soon have the power to carry out drone strikes anywhere in the world....

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
12/15/2014
This exciting entry in the Covert-One series is Thriller Award–winner Freveletti’s second contribution to the Ludlum franchise (after 2012’s The Janus Reprisal). It begins with Lt. Col. Jon Smith, a member of the highly secretive Covert-One team, fending off several armed men after leaving a cocktail party in an upscale Washington, D.C., neighborhood for eminent microbiologist Chang Ying Peng, who was recently smuggled out of a Chinese prison. Smith soon learns that several important government officials were kidnapped that same night as part of an ambitious plan to acquire the passwords and codes needed to hack control of U.S. drones. Smith joins forces with CIA agent Randi Russell and others to rescue the kidnap victims. Meanwhile, a double-cross among the bad guys may result in a terrorist attack using a deadly and unstable mind-altering drug. Freveletti offers a savory mix of intense action and cynical politics. Agent: Barbara Poelle, Irene Goodman Literary Agency. (Feb.)
