The action starts at once.

 

“The blow to the side of his head dropped Ridley Fox to the floor. … His fiancée, Jessica, had died at the hands of his captors, two years before, just hours after he had proposed. Unlike her, he knew they’d torture him first.”

 

The Arms of Ares had been developing Pandora, a microbe that has the capacity to “produce a death toll similar to that of a nuclear bomb.”

 

Fox, though captured, is determined to stop them.

 

The author develops an intricate, fast paced story that readers will follow to its satisfying conclusion.
