From Publishers Weekly
Not many thrillers end with a bibliography of several dozen actual nonfiction books, but Perdue's prodigious and intriguing new novel (after 2004's Slatewiper) has one—plus appendixes that are probably fiction because they include quotes from the novel's star players. Dr. Bradford Stone, "legendary Marine recon operative turned healer and scientist," makes it his business to find out who's behind a massive secret plan to turn the drug Xantaeus loose on a reduced but much more effective army in places like Iraq—especially after the love of his life, a black activist in the Mississippi Delta country, is killed by a female sniper involved in the conspiracy. Stone and the murdered activist's daughter are credible characters; the plot's premise stands up to scrutiny; and Perdue brings the Delta geography to vivid life. Even though the writing occasionally slips into some awkward phrasing ("Gabriel had paid scant attention and given no real thought to those critics, preferring to believe the day of the nondepleting neurotrop would never come"), this is an exciting novel.

Using the Perfect Killer scenario, Perdue examines the shadowy world of power in the United States. Brad Stone is bigger-than-life, a human Super Hero sacrificing everything to do the right thing. His purpose is no less than the salvation of freedom, the preservation of America and the sanctity of our leaders.
This is a fast-paced, intricate story that has no down time. Like the characters in the book, the action never ceases. Every word has forward momentum and takes us deeper into the world of clandestine power that really rules the halls of leadership.
Characteristically, a book written in 2005, Perdue exhibits his visionary powers. He has foreseen many of the plots and counterplots that run the government for real - today.
This is a great read -- fast-paced, solid characters, a good plot that's not, as sometimes happens in this genre, at all confusing.
