July Fourth: New York City
Hundreds of thousands line the banks of the East and Hudson Rivers awaiting the nation’s largest fireworks display. Soon the sky will explode in cascading showers of silver and gold. Everywhere, faces will turn skyward in wide-eyed wonder.
Then the sky will grow dark again—but it will not be empty. The air will be filled with clouds of smoke and specks of debris will rain down everywhere. Some will pick bits of paper from their children’s hair. Some will brush away still-burning sparks or embers. And some will absentmindedly scratch at the tiny, biting specks that dot their necks and arms.
Will the beginning of the show mark the beginning of the end?
That’s what FBI agent Nathan Donovan must decide. When he is forced to enlist the help of ex-wife Macy Monroe, and expert in the psychology of terrorism, the fireworks really begin—but she may be the only one who can help him stop the Plague maker in time.
“Plague Maker is a novel that can proudly be shelved beside any [book] featuring Crichton or Clancy and hold its own.”

"New York FBI counterterrorism agent Nathan Donovan receives a phone call from an eighty-year-old man named Li who has a story to tell - a story too fantastic to believe but too terrible for Donovan to ignore." "Li tells the story of Sato Matsushita, a brilliant bioweapons scientist, a man waging a personal war against the United States. His mission: to destroy America with bubonic plague - beginning with the city of New York." "The old man has tracked Matsushita for six decades and across three continents because he, too, has a mission to fulfill: to stop Matsushita before he can strike - and to settle an old score of his own." "Li's lifelong search has brought him to the most powerful city in the world, a city of eight million souls, a city on the eve of its biggest celebration of the year: the Fourth of July fireworks display." "Now Donovan and Li must work together to prevent a modern-day Black Death of global proportions. They must find the Plague Maker before it's too late - for everyone."--Back cover.
