With help from former SEAL trainee, Special agent Nancy Palmer, and in an uneasy alliance with her boss, McGrath, Johnson is in a race against time. The plotters have a deadly virus that will kill millions and totally disrupt the world’s economy. Johnson must also enlist the help of FBI agent Lenore Cummings, a woman he’d physically tortured and humiliated after a government operation led to the death of his son, Mark.
As a reward for saving her daughter, Mallory granted Johnson a presidential pardon, and his operation against the Triad has left him with enough money, he could simply fade away and live a life of luxurious exile. But, that’s not enough for the American Terrorist. Motivated by an unquenched desire for revenge, and most importantly, a sense of honor and an aversion to harming the innocent, Johnson and his team set themselves against the power of the U.S. Government, or that part of it under the Rain Man’s control, and the might of the Triad. In a race against time, with scenes of heart stopping action, Jeffrey Poston’s Contagion: American Terrorist 2 is a perfect sequel to Where’s the Girl? Fight scenes, tactical planning sessions, and one-on-one encounters are written with an astonishing degree of verisimilitude and drama. Poston knows his technical stuff, and manages to convey it without giving readers a boring data dump. As unlikely as the premise might seem; an ordinary real estate agent, tortured by his own government, turns into the deadliest killer imaginable, it comes across as believable. Johnson’s a killer, able to kill without hesitation—even he admits that—but, throughout he maintains his humanity. He might be a bad guy, but he knows who the good guys are, and he’s willing to put his life on the line for them.
Come along for the ride of your life.
