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.

Competant yet stereotyped

The Moscow Vector is a competant novel that sticks to its genre. That said, the book is unfortunately quite predictable especially to those who have read Larkin/Ludlum previously. Quite political at times with characters mirroring those of today's world leaders, the book should have maintained a bit more independent focus. As it were, the story mired itself in an immutable disbelief on the reader's part given the farfetched nature of the schemes. Also the book's jingoism gets a little old especially in the context of the us-vs.-them mentality espoused by the author.

However, being farfetched and patriotic (weak use of the term) is what these books are all about, so do not let that dissuade you from reading the novel. If you like Larkin, then I think you will enjoy this offering.

One of the most entertaining thrillers I have listened to in a while. Fast paced, well written and enjoyable.
