The Governments of the world know a terrorist biological attack will happen sooner rather than later. Vaccination is the only solution, but designing and producing vaccines has never been harder due to stringent trials, rules and regulations and huge settlements in an increasingly litigious society. There is no such thing as a 'completely safe vaccine' but necessity soon begins to outweigh caution and corners are cut, blind eyes turned and scientists given free rein with the new science of molecular biology. The only outcome can be disaster.

This is certainly a tale for our nervous new millennium, and David Thorpe's narration keeps one on the edge. It's easy to become gripped by the chilling scenario that runs throughout this thriller, set in various locations in the United Kingdom. Thorpe portrays all the regional accents with a smooth vocal dexterity. The story centers on one of our newest nightmare scenarios--the use of biological weapons--and the desperate struggle to produce vaccines against diseases possibly stored in a laboratory on the other side of the world. It's frightening and deeply worrying --and a darn fine listen. B.D.J. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
