When militants invade the Belarusian State University in Minsk, Peter and his father are caught in the crossfire. Held hostage by gunmen who look suspiciously like Russian soldiers, Peter Savage uncovers a deadly plot to kill thousands of innocent civilians—and lay the blame at the feet of the United States government. In a desperate attempt to avoid a global war, Commander James Nicolaou and Peter are called to the front lines of the sinister campaign, and the stakes have never been higher.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Simply Brilliant. There is so much to like about this book. I’m always happy to come across a new Author that can capture my attention like Dave Edlund has. There is always something fascinating and generally frightening reading about a disease like smallpox, and It’s potential to be used as a bio weapon. For most of us it could be quite realistic that a scientist can achieve this in a lab, and the Author has done a great job in bringing this to life. Peter Savage and his father find themselves caught in the University, after militant’s storm in and take over. However, they are in luck when Captain Diaz and his men enter the fray. There is plenty of action, and the story moves along at a good pace. I really enjoyed everything about this book, and I was entertained from start to finish. It’s definitely worth a read.
