“If you agree, you’ll be happy you did. I promise.”
In today’s world, most people are familiar with the terms ‘terrorism’ and ‘terrorist.’ And because of the omnipresence of the media, many people are aware of bioterrorism, but only as a concept. Fortunately, very few people have come into contact with bioterrorism. Yet bioterrorism is real and it’s scary.
In his bio-thriller – Codon Zero – author Jim Hendee brings the reader face to face with bioterrorism and its lethal consequences. As the story opens, retired U.S. intelligence officer Jason Stouter is approached by Dr. Chance Bonnard, a biochemical engineer. Dr. Bonnard informs Jason Stouter that he has a formulated a cure for the rare disease that afflicts Jason’s son. If Jason will do Dr. Bonnard a favor, the doctor will cure his son.
