Synopsis

The deadliest weapon against mankind has been Unleashed. CIA operative, Ridley Fox, never stopped hunting his fiancée’s killers—a weapons consortium called The Arms Of Ares. When Fox follows a lead to one of their top-secret bioweapons facilities in Chechnya, he barely escapes alive. However, he’s learned that Ares has weaponized a hyper-deadly microbe called Pandora. The trail leads Fox to Tokyo, where he teams up with an old flame and fellow operative, Nita Parris. Aside from Ares, they must contend with rogue agents who’ll stop at nothing to get Pandora. This throws Fox and Parris into a deadly game of spy vs spy, as they must rely on each other to locate the microbe. For if it’s unleashed, it could mean the end of humanity.

***Derek -#NerdGirlDad’s  Review***
This is without doubt capable of being written as a a five star work. So why, you will wonder did I give it only four?
The hero, Ridley Fox, is a sort of cross between the best of James Bond, Bulldog Drummond. Simon Templar and any other action character you may remember. The trouble is that after he gets into a dangerous situation, a regular occurrence and usually in a ‘no possible way out’ scenario he invariably escapes along the lines of and with a bound he was free, like in the old Dick Barton Special Agent stories (for those of you old enough to remember them).
The first time it was acceptable, but it happened too often for me: no one could get that lucky in real life. However the basic story is so good that like me, you will continue reading it to the end. Also like me you will then go on to read the other two in the trilogy, Unsavory Delicacies and The Demeter Code. I have another book to read first and I hope to be able to give five stars to each one.
