Tongue in cheek humorous mystery about a lazy college student, a virus, and an unlikely hero.

Veterinary virologist Jason Mitchell can’t keep his mouth shut, can’t lie convincingly, and can’t follow orders. He’s an extremely unlikely candidate to help the CIA locate and destroy a deadly hybrid virus stolen from Jason’s lab at the University of Minnesota.

From Washington to Djibouti, From Minneapolis to Yemen, Marines cringe, Senators turn livid, and CIA agents shudder as Jason struggles to prevent the virus from becoming a biological weapon in the hands of jihadists.

Sometimes we need a light, funny ready to take us away from the seriousness of reality. This book offers just that.

Author Gary Jones is a master at dry humor and unlikely heros.

About the Author

As a graduate student at the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine, Gary Jones developed a way to extract microbial DNA from swine feces and a molecular test for Lawsonia intracellularis, the cause of a disease in swine and horses.

Gary earned a Ph.D. in microbiology and spent the following 19 years working on R&D vaccines for cattle and swine. He supervised clinical research on bovine coronavirus for a major pharmaceutical company, and studied the evolution of virulence of pathogens. "Stolen Virus" is his second novel. His first, "Doc's Codicil," was released in October of 2015.
