Reviewed by Stephen B for Readers Favorite A megalomaniac with godlike delusions is destroying villages and killing people in Uganda. An American special forces team is sent in to eliminate the threat. The team is decimated when they encounter villagers gone mad and possessing super speed and strength. Colonel Jon Smith, part of America¿s secret Cover-One organization is sent in to investigate. Along with another operative and a woman doctor studying viruses, Smith treks into the Ugandan wild. There, they discover the cause of the madness to a parasite that has been around for centuries, popping up to wreak violence, then going dormant. Soon, Smith and his team are captured by the Ugandan madman and his cohort, an Iranian fanatic also interested in the parasite which he intends to let loose against America. After escaping, Smith and his team have to stop the Iranians. Meanwhile, there are shadowy forces back in Washington D.C. determined to stop him and control the parasite themselves. This book will take you from Colorado to jungle infested Africa to the snowy hills of Iran. There are a lot of characters and you may feel you need a scorecard to keep track of them all. Action occurs in two or three different places, all of it interconnected. The idea for this Covert-One team was conceived by the late Robert Ludlum. Author Kyle Mills has continued the series, holding true to Ludlum¿s in-depth characters, non-stop action, and intricate plots. If you¿re a fan of Covert-One, this one will not disappoint. If you¿re new to the series, jump in with both feet and hang on.

A special ops unit enters Northern Uganda to execute brutal terrorist Caleb Bahame, but a video displays the peaceful weaponless locals behaving like mythical fearless berserkers use super speed and strength to eradicate the trained professionals. Although the threat may seem regional at best, concern is high that a new bioweapon has been developed. Thus Covert One, established by POTUS to handle proactively global threats while the establishment passively reacts, is assigned to insure this remains localized and countered as the fear is Bahame will give this bioweapon to Iran and other rogue states and groups. Cover One Director Fred Klein sends Dr. Jon Smith and his team to Africa to learn what is going on and to abate the threat to Africa and subsequently the world. The Covert-One operatives quickly learn Bahame has deployed a deadly parasite on the Ugandan farmers as a beta test that affirms this evil person cares nothing about killing the innocent. Namibian biologist Sarie van Keure joins Smith and his team to prevent further spreading of the lethal parasite especially with an Iranian delegation wanting it released in the West. The latest Covert-One thriller (see The Moscow Vector and The Arctic Event) is an excellent action-packed tale starring a strong cast in which the team members, the biologist, and the terrorist are fully developed while the local Ugandans and their country enhance the plot. Fast-paced, Robert Ludlum fans will appreciate Kyle Mills take on Covert One. Harriet Klausner
