The Leviathan Effect

ebook

Terrorists threaten America in this "thriller that takes the 'Day After Tomorrow' concept of accelerated weather disasters a bit further" (The Charlotte Observer).

Homeland Security secretary Catherine Blaine has received a frightening communication from a hacker identified only by the pseudonym "Janus." Three recent natural disasters around the world were correctly predicted—in fact, they were manufactured, not natural at all. And, says the email, unless she does exactly as Janus instructs, more disasters are coming—and they will destroy the United States.

Unaware of the crisis in Washington, investigative journalist Jon Mallory stumbles on a list of seven prominent scientists who have been murdered in recent months. When the person who gave him the list goes missing herself, Jon realizes he has unwittingly become part of a deadly chain of events. He contacts his brother Charles, an ex-CIA agent, looking for help—just as Catherine Blaine is doing the same. Now the three must untangle the science and the politics behind this looming catastrophe . . .

From the author of Viral, this is a "suspenseful book with believable action and interesting science that will captivate weather buffs and fans of bioterrorism plots" (Library Journal).
