massacre of an American Special Forces team by a group of normally
peaceful farmers in Northern Uganda is not half as puzzling and
terrifying as what a video of the attack shows. All of the natives,

the U.S. president sends specialists of his own clandestine team,
Covert-One, to try to figure out what is happening in the region.
What Army microbiologist Colonel Jon Smith discovers is quite troubling.
A centuries old parasitic infection that causes violent insanity
is the cause of the attack. Dormant for a long time, the parasite
has been “resurrected” and is now a biological weapon
that could, in the wrong hands, have serious consequences for mankind.
With the head
of the Iranian Intelligence force trying to get his hands on the
parasite, Smith realizes he doesn’t have much time to get
control of the explosive situation. Then the entire assignment becomes
even more challenging when Smith and his team are ambushed and cut
off from outside support.

Covert-One series lives on in the competent hands of Kyle Mills.
This action- packed, tightly plotted thriller is as good and as
entertaining as any of the seven novels that have preceded it.
