When the seeds of death are sown into the very blueprints of life, no one is safe.... Someone is trying to resurrect ancient viruses hidden deep within the human genetic code to create a biological weapon so specific that it can target an individual—or an entire race. When two young prodigies discover their “medical research” is being used to build this weapon, they seek outside help to destroy it and to flee China. Help comes in the unlikely guise of Jon Gunderson—doctor, bio-weapons expert, and devoted family man whose unsuspecting wife and nine children have unwittingly accompanied him on yet another assignment. Once the truth comes to light, the Gundersons will have to set aside their differences if they hope to rescue the prodigies and escape with their lives. The fate of the world hangs in the balance as the bittersweet dynamics of a large but loving family take center stage against the backdrop of China’s breathtaking landscapes.

War scenes and the Chinese characters' stories are well done. But when the author throws in a family of eleven ( a la 19 Kids and Counting), secret agents and an ending featuring a double wedding, it's more like a Saturday cartoon than a medical thriller. The doctor gets to go on spy missions coming home just long enough to get his wife pregnant, then he's off to another exotic location leaving her to raise the kids. He says that children are such a blessing but thinks they all look alike. I kept reading hoping I'd get to the pandemic but only got more subplots. He sometimes takes his family on his missions but only because they're good cover. This could have been a good book.
