Editorial Reviews

Review

"A compelling trio of protagonists...Tight and well-crafted. Detailed and knowledgeable portrayal of the settings. Galt has lived in South Asia, and it shows. Highly recommended!" (Tales from a Small Planet) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Publisher

This Mick Pierce thriller, the fourth in a series, presents Mick with his most daunting task yet. His quest to defuse a biological time bomb leads him through a dizzying series of events that will determine the fate of his both his daughter's fate and the future of the world.

Galt’s novels have the scientific rigor of a Michael Crichton, the depth of characterization and intrigue of a John LeCarré, the cultural scope of a James Clavell, and the tension of a John Grisham.

Trained in fiction writing at the University of Illinois and San Francisco State University, Galt brings the reader a narrative richness rarely found in popular fiction.

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this book! The author has created a tightly plotted spy thriller against a very well-researched background of exotic locations (India, the Maldives, etc.) The reader will learn a lot about the far corners of the world during the course of this novel.
The action is nonstop, and the characters are interesting, eccentric, and engaging. Mick Pierce is an unusual and very modern hero--an ex-CIA agent who has chosen to accompany his wife in her diplomatic career. There are times when the characters seem a bit two-dimensional, but it works in the context of this novel. (After all, how really believable was James Bond?) The dialogue is intelligent, and occasionally brilliant, with a dry wit that pops up to surprise you when you least expect it.
The plot revolves around a new, and deadly strain of malaria concocted by the leader of a terrorist organization. A very timely subject in an age when the tiniest weapons may be the most deadly. I'm not a biologist, but the subject seems to be extremely well-researched. Hey I believed it could happen!
All in all a good read, especially for anyone interested in the world of diplomacy or international espionage.

I find this book just a pedestrian piece of "thriller". I haven't even read the end yet and don't find it compelling, as I normally would

The plot was okay but it proved to be difficult reading on my Kindle. The worst problem was that the text display was very poor and no adjustment to the text settings could correct the problem. In addition, there were far too many grammatical and typographical errors; there should have been better proof reading and editing.
