#Biological Experiments #Bio-Terrorist #CDC #Assassins

About The Book:
Cold War era biological experiments are resurrected and after Boston experiences a seemingly inexplicable bio-terrorist attack, the Center for Disease Control’s Dr. Davie Richards and Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Paula Mushari once again join forces to uncover who is behind it. An obscure reference to a Dresden project found amid crash site evidence marks them both for execution. Paula and Dave are forced to leave Boston in the middle of the night and head to Washington, D.C.,where they soon find that anyone they contact also becomes the target of assassins. When the daughter of the CDC’s director is taken hostage, Dave and Paula come face to face with an evil that forces them to question the very nature of duty and service to country. With the help of one man, they learn the true meaning of dark operatives while they desperately try to stop another bio-attack from happening.

Lynda's Review:
This book is sure to make you think twice, suspect the unsuspected, and shiver with the possibility that it may be more fact than fiction!

~ "Yeah, the blade."
   "Yeah, well you got a positive hit for MRSA. Am I reading that right, Doctor?"
   "Your looking at the report. I'm not."
   "Right. Yeah, that's what it says. There was MRSA on the trimmer. Isn't that strange, Doctor?"
   "Uh, yes, yes, very strange."
   "How'd you think it got there? A tree?" ~

Deadly chemicals and environmental contamination, can the premise get any scarier? What I liked about this story was that the writers didn't just rely on the usual 'edge of your seat' suspense. The edge is there, alright, but the actions and reactions are more realistic of the way such things are handled in the real world. I felt like I was part of the investigative team, desperately working toward pinpointing the next target inside the US. “White Rogue” Book Two in the White series is well worth the read.
