Publisher's Summary

With U.S. intelligence agencies wracked by internal power struggles and paralyzed by bureaucracy, the President was forced to establish his own clandestine group-Covert-One. It is only activated as a last resort, when the threat is on a global scale and time is running out.
In northern Uganda, an American special forces team is decimated by a group of normally peaceful farmers. Video of the attack shows even women and children possessing almost supernatural speed and strength, consumed with a rage that makes them immune to pain, fear, and all but the most devastating injuries.
Covert-One's top operative, army microbiologist Colonel Jon Smith, is sent to investigate the attack and finds evidence of a parasitic infection that for centuries has been causing violent insanity and then going dormant. This time, though, it's different. The parasite had been purposely kept alive and crudely transmitted in acts of terrorism. Now the director of Iranian Intelligence is in Uganda trying to obtain this biological weapon to unleash it on the West.
Smith and his team are ambushed and cut off from all outside support just as they begin to suspect that forces much more powerful than the Iranians are in play-forces that can be traced to Washington itself.

Great Book

I was skepticle since I didn't really like the last book for Covert One written by James Cobb but Kyle Mills did an excellant job. He brought back Marty, Peter and Randi. It was fast paced and a good read.

Excellent It was worth the wait.

I've read the entire Covert One series and this was no disappointment. It was a real page turner and I found it difficult to find stopping points. I just wanted to keep listening late into the night. Adding one of the series background characters to the Covert One team is a good move. I can see where this will help new novels in the future. This is well worth the credit and time spent listening. I highly recommend it. The narrator did a good job but I would have been happier listening to Dick Hill or Scott Brick.
