Invented by nature but genetically manipulated by man, a mutation of the H5N1 virus -- aka the "bird flu" -- has fallen into the wrong hands. Angered by sanctions placed against its nuclear program, a rogue state is determined to release it. Their chosen method: one of the Black Widows -- female suicide terrorists of Chechen descent who have the highest kill rate of any terrorist organization. By infecting her, then instructing her to detonate in the United States, her body will become the real weapon, spraying the virus into a crowd. The only thing standing in the Black Widow's way is the Taskforce, an extra-legal counterterrorism unit. Racing against time to prevent a global pandemic, Taskforce operator Pike Logan and his partner Jennifer Cahill follow the trail across Southeast Asia to the United States, only to learn that the enemy they face may not be the enemy they should fear.

A very tragic thriller from the Black Widow's perspective. The book was good as far as suspence goes; this is the first book by this author I have read. In my opinion not in the league with Daniel Silva but still an interesting read. I would read a book by this author again.

sometimes you needed to be a little bad to ensure the good.
