Combine a genetically mutated Ebola-like virus with a United States Army research lab, financial investor manipulation, and underlying human greed--and what you get is another runaway bestseller, Ludlum style. Lieutenant Colonel Jon Smith discovers his fianc?e is dying from the mysterious virus and learns that he himself is on a federal hit list. Joseph Campanella excels assuming diverse characters, accents, ages, and genders, giving the impression of multiple narrators. His narration of Lieutenant Colonel Smith's fiancée's death is graphic, filled with sound and description some may find disturbing. His portrayal of electronic savant Marty, characterized by accent and tone, is terrific. Although the story is somewhat predictable, Campanella delivers intrigue and suspense with style.
