Overview

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.

Dr. Valentine Petrenko is concerned about some unexplained deaths in Moscow, and the government’s 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.

It's amazing that 10 pages before the end of the book, you still can't figure out how he's going to resolve the complex plot he's presented. Yet he does, and pretty satisfactorily.
