In remote pockets of the Third World, a deadly virus is quietly sweeping through impoverished farming villages and shanty towns with frightening speed and potency. Meanwhile, in Washington, a three-word message left in a safe-deposit box may be the key to stopping the crisis - if, that is, Charles Mallory, a private intelligence contractor and former CIA operative, can decipher the puzzle before time runs out.
What Mallory begins to discover are the traces of a secret war with a bold objective - to create a new, technologically advanced society. With the help of his brother Jon, an investigative reporter, can he break the story to the world before it is too late - before a planned "humane depopulation" takes place?
As the stakes and strategies of this secret war become more evident, the Mallory brothers find themselves in a complex game of wits with an enemy they can’t see: a new sort of superpower led by a brilliant, elusive tactician who believes that ends justify means.

Decreasing The World's Population
Yes--because it is one of the most spellbinding books that I have ever read/listened to!
By the plot's many twists and turns. One minute everything is seemingly OK--the next the hero's in trouble again.
When the brothers finally meet:again after many years apart
Excellent reader! Hard words to pronounce throughout the book, but he didn't stumble a single time. Sorry, don't remember his name.
