Since then, Jim and Nikoo have written over thirty novels and two works of nonfiction.

An entertaining thriller. In what appears to be a terrorist attack, outbreaks of a deadly, flesh-eating disease, strikes America. The only hope to stop it rests with the Iraqi biochemist believed responsible for creating the strain in the first place. But how can American officials get someone they've held prisoner for years in a CIA black site to cooperate? As the President of the United States has to deal with more deaths and mounting panic, on the other side of the world an American scientist and an Iraqi scientist have to try and work together to solve the crises despite their culture differences and lack of trust. I don't like spoilers so I won't give anything away but I can recommend this book without reservation. This is a very well-written story, with enough twists and turns to keep you reading into the night.
