Publisher's Summary

At an international medical conference in Prague, Dr. Fiona Devin, an American scientist attached to the Department of Defense, is contacted by one of her Russian colleagues. Dr. Valentin Petrenko, a specialist in rare diseases, is concerned about a small cluster of deaths in Moscow but even more concerned by the Russian government's refusal to publicly release any information or data on the outbreak. When he meets with Devin to pass on his case notes and samples, the two are attacked; Petrenko is killed while Devin barely escapes with the notes and medical samples. Covert-One operative Lt. Col. Jon Smith is dispatched to Prague to get Devin and her information safely back to the U.S.As Devin begins to analyze the information, a series of highly placed figures in the U.S. government become ill with a mysterious illness that bears a close resemblance to the disease described in Petrenko's notes. The disease is the perfect assassination tool: a bioweapon that, using each target's DNA, is undetectable, unstoppable, and incurable. With few clues and little time, Jon Smith must find the mysterious figure who stands at the center of this nefarious plot.

Good story

I've listened to all the other Covert One Novels. I found the story fast paced and enjoyable. The new narrator took a while to get used to. Erik Bergmann did a good job on the character voices, although the voice of Klein was so different from the prior readings that I never got used to the new Klein. Quite a good story - for Covert One fans.

Moscow Vector

I bought this book from Audible during the 50% off sale at the same time I bougt THE PIECES OF THE PUZZLE. I feel that I got a real bargain. Ludlams's book is sweeping in its range and includes a tremendous amount of detail about Russia and other former Soviet contries. I'm not normally a fan of spy books, but this book made it very real and quite frightening. Staneks's THE PIECES OF THE PUZZLE was also excellent and simply amazed me with its twists and turns, and its amazing story centered around a very real financial crisis. Enjoyment wise, you can't miss with these two books.
