An investigation into the 2001 US anthrax attacks leads to the terrible realisation that a different kind of arms race may soon be upon us; one that spans the globe and is driven by an array of forces working with lethal microorganisms. Penetrating what they regard as an international 'bio-weapons mafia', Bob Coen and Eric Nadler encounter scientists, capitalists, politicians, and assassins - all working with the world's most dangerous germs. Coen and Nadler pursue leads across four continents, attempting to illuminate the secret world of international biological weapons research. They probe the mysterious deaths of some of the world's leading germ war scientists in the wake of 9/11. Including the death of Bruce Ivins - the man the US tabloids called 'Dr Doom', whom the FBI controversially insist is the lone perpetrator of the anthrax attacks. They also examine David Kelly's suspicious suicide, the same week UK officials killed an investigation into illegal human experimentation at the top-secret facility where he once worked. As the plot darkens, it becomes clear that the 2001 anthrax attacks are a portal into a new and lucrative 'biomilitary-industrial complex' and one of the most frightening stories of our time.
