Special Operative Eric Steele battles a renegade group of bioterrorists armed with a devastating virus in the fourth pulse-pounding military thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of Outlaw Platoon.
On a remote mountaintop in western China, Doctor Ai Liang is about to risk everything and defy the Chinese Communist Party. She and her team have created an extraordinary and terrifying new virus, even more deadly than COVID-19, one capable of killing someone in minutes. But her conscience tells her she must destroy the bioweapon before it can bring devastation to millions. And at the very minute she is about to explain her change of heart, she and her team are interrupted by a swarm of violent commandos who attack the lab, kill everyone in sight, and take off with the Gantu-62 virus.
Meanwhile, Eric Steele is on a cleanup mission, about to exact revenge on the group responsible for killing numerous Alphas and forcing the Program to disband. When justice is served, Steele can turn his thoughts to other pressing matters--namely, his long-lost father and his estranged girlfriend, Meg Harden.
But when news of CCP plans to attack U.S. forces reaches the United States, the president calls for the revival of the Program to counter this new threat. Steele is back in action, and he soon learns that the potential CCP move is related to a much more complex plot involving a fanatical Chinese imperialist group--and the stolen Gantu-62 bioweapon. It's up to Steele and his team to find out who is really behind the threat and to stop them before they can unleash the unprecedented strike that could ignite another world war.
