A virus carried by ticks breaks out in Pennsylvania. When it is traced to a terrorist group, a page-turning race to save the world from a potential bioterrorism disaster begins. The good guys in this thriller are a male CIA agent and a female epidemiologist, who travel to far corners of the earth in an attempt to find the source of the virus. It is difficult to put down the book while this race is on.
Hank Parker is not only a terrific writer, but he is an expert on the subject of agro-terrorism. Thus the novel is a realistic adventure based on a threat that is very real in today’s dangerous world. The book–with its nonstop action–is not only entertaining, but it introduces the reader to a frightening scenario, one that illustrates how vulnerable we are to such attacks. I recommend CONTAINMENT as highly as is possible.
