Rainbow Six by Tom Clancy

The latest Tom Clancy thriller, with a viral plot! Rainbow Six appeals on all the levels that Clancy fans could hope for. The Rainbow operatives, from Navy SEALs to German mountain-leader school graduates, are rendered to inspire with their physical and mental prowess. The book is infatuated with the latest gadgets for scrambling, transmitting, and decoding secrets. And, in a carefully woven narrative that simultaneously traces the Rainbow team, a former KGB agent named Popov, the Australian Olympic security team, and a sinister group of American scientists, Clancy artfully reveals the mystery of "Shiva" at the center of the novel. How does Clark measure up against Jack Ryan? He may be the perfect hero for a world with hidden villains. --Patrick O'Kelley

Book 1 of The Lorelei Files (3.5 Diskette) by Lorna Tedder

Synopsis of this thriller (3.5 inch diskette version): An abandoned baby brings back paralyzing memories for a tough-as-nails negotiator for the Department of Defense. Tired of being everyone else's pillar of strength, L. Madison Steele longs for the luxury of being weak-just once-but too many people depend on her. Framed for espionage and murder, Madison must reach deep into her soul if she is to recover stolen biological warfare secrets and ultimately save the world. Lt. Jon Colter, son of a psychic hypnotherapist and a militia leader, knows a terrifying secret: that far too many people-from the Iraqi government to international terrorists to backyard militia groups to the kid down the street-have access to biological weapons and reason to use them. Reluctant to accept his own psychic gifts, Jon makes it his mission in life to protect Madison Steele. Only Jon has seen the cracks in her veneer. Only Jon has heard her weeping in her sleep. Only Jon shares with her an ancient past and a dangerous future.

The Cobra Event by Richard Preston

The Cobra Event is the story of a secret counter-terror operation. It is set in motion one spring morning in New York City when a seventeen-year-old student wakes up feeling vaguely ill. She seems to be coming down with a cold. Hours later she is having violent seizures, blood is pouring out of her nose, and she has begun a hideous process of self-cannibalization. Soon, other gruesome deaths of a similar nature have been discovered, and the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta sends a forensic pathologist. an expert in epidemiology, to investigate. What she finds precipitates a federal crisis.

The details of this story are fictional, but they are based on a scrupulously thorough inquiry into the history of biological weapons and their use by civilian and military terrorists. "The creation of advanced biological weapons using methods of genetic engineering and biotechnology is sometimes known as 'black biology,'" Richard Preston writes. The extent to which the products of black biology are available nearly everywhere in the world is shocking. Preston's sources for his story include members of the FBI and the United States military, public health officials, intelligence officers in foreign governments, and scientists who have been involved in the development and testing of strategic bioweapons. The stories of what they have seen and what they expect to happen and how they plan to deal with it are chilling.

Death for Cause Vol. 1 by K. C. Bailey

Death for Cause is a whirlwind suspense novel with lively characters in hot pursuit of deadly microbes from Vancouver to Jerusalem. K. C. Bailey communicates via fiction a stark message-we face imminent danger of terrorist use of biological weapons, easily home-brewed and exceptionally lethal. Bailey's terrorists are radical scientists attempting to impose their "ecologically correct" views on the US Government and the Catholic Church. Death for Cause is a good read, a real page-turner, with a true-to-life ending. Bailey's book is a morality tale in the guise of an international thriller.
