Description: How do you solve the problem of scarce resources and over-population with one devastating act?

Publishers Weekly: “The action is crisp with a great job of establishing a sense of reality—and real danger—by mixing current fears about killer diseases with a clear-eyed view of the Army.”

Assigned to escort SNN’s ace reporter Conner Young, who’s accompanying a US Army Special Forces A-team as part of the UN’s peacekeeping mission in Angola, former Green Beret Dave Riley finds himself undertaking his most dangerous and thrilling mission yet.

In the war-torn jungles of Africa, the team becomes infected with a terrible disease known as ‘Z’, which kills within days and is now on the verge of an uncontrollable outbreak.

The shocking truth about the virus points to a mysterious diamond cartel based on the Namibian coast. In a desperate race against time, Riley and the assault team must secure the only antidote before it is destroyed.

Bookpage: “Take an original look at a simmering world hot spot, and generates a lot of suspense along the way. A winner on all points.”

Library Journal: “A heart-pounding thriller about the emergence of a deadly ebola-like virus. The panorama of modern warfare and the details of hand-to-hand combat encounters add excitement. Inventive, entertaining, and realistic adventure. Highly recommended.”

Kirkus: “A ripping good biotech/military thriller that plausibly depicts the high costs of combating unseen enemies. An absorbing and well-written series.
