Moscow Vector is continues the Covert One series by Robert Ludlum, but this books was actually written by Peter Larkin after Ludlum's death. The plot focuses on germ warfare, with Lt Col. Jon Smith under deep cover in Eastern Europe and Russia. There's a lot of political intrigue too, with a revived Russian Empire 'shades of Putin' planning to annex former Soviet Bloc nations. The character development was OK, but a little over the top at times. I did enjoy reading it though, and look forward to reading more books in this series.
