Publisher's Summary

The mission seems simple enough: extract a pharmaceutical magnate from Russian soil, a volatile man who holds the secret to a deadly bioweapon. But nothing is as it appears to be. A conspiracy of world-shattering scope unravels as Tucker and Kane struggle to keep one move ahead of their deadly enemies.

From the frozen steppes of Russia to the sun-blasted mountains of South Africa and Namibia, a biological threat millions of years in the making strikes out at the heart of America. All that stands in the way of a global apocalypse is one man and his dog. But can even Tucker and Kane thwart an ecological menace from the ancient past to save the world's future?

Would give it a miss

I'd give it a miss, especially for the overdramatised performance. Story would probably be better if read to yourself.

GREAT!

This is a typical James Rollins book. Lots of action at break neck speed. The narrator was good but did a dreadful english accent! Thankfully the need for it did not last long.

Not quite Reilly but a good 'read'

I came to this after the latest jack west junior escapades and in truth found the pace a little slow. I stuck with though and developed a fondness for Tucker and Cain. It's a well conceived story at a good pace (not withstanding my passion for Matthew Reilly), with a high level of historical and contemporary fact baked in. All in all I can recommend this and look forward to hearing more about Tucker and Cain.

Fantastic

I love how this book is somewhat factual but I love the bond between tucker and Kane. There is no bond like with your dog!
