From the bestselling author of The Omega Scroll From China's western-most province comes the threat of a devastating biological terrorist attack - delivered in a coded ultimatum. The White House is dismissive. It receives thousands of terrorist threats each month. But this threat comes from Dr Khalid Kadeer, a brilliant Muslim microbiologist. CIA agent Curtis O'Connor, an expert on bioterrorism, knows Kadeer isn't bluffing. So does Australian scientist Kate Braithwaite, who works in a deadly hot-zone laboratory on the USA's own top-secret biological weapons program. As they work together to unravel the riddles of Kadeer's warning, Curtis and Kate discover a threat even more sinister than they had imagined - a threat from within, from a man whose lust for power drives him to orchestrate a plan that will devastate the human race. And the clock is ticking... 'A fast-paced and thrilling read.' West Australian 'A captivating spy story... very well written and constructed, with well-drawn characters.' Courier Mail
