"New York FBI counterterrorism agent Nathan Donovan receives a phone call from an eighty-year-old man named Li who has a story to tell - a story too fantastic to believe but too terrible for Donovan to ignore." "Li tells the story of Sato Matsushita, a brilliant bioweapons scientist, a man waging a personal war against the United States. His mission: to destroy America with bubonic plague - beginning with the city of New York." "The old man has tracked Matsushita for six decades and across three continents because he, too, has a mission to fulfill: to stop Matsushita before he can strike - and to settle an old score of his own." "Li's lifelong search has brought him to the most powerful city in the world, a city of eight million souls, a city on the eve of its biggest celebration of the year: the Fourth of July fireworks display."
"Now Donovan and Li must work together to prevent a modern-day Black Death of global proportions. They must find the Plague Maker before it's too late - for everyone."--Back cover.

I really enjoy Tim Downs' writing. This was another great novel by the author. Well-researched topic, humorous elements, kept my attention throughout, liked the characters.

An awesome novel. A spellbinding plot which kept me on the edge up to the very end. An excellent way to learn about the heinous Unit 731, which Imperial Japan built and operated in their puppet state of Manchuko in northeastern China, conducting ghastly Joseph Mengele-esque experiments on Chinese prisoners.
