E Now is not the time for emotional entanglements but passion has a way of sabotaging dutyChen’s grieving lover Colonel Maxwell Graham joins forces with Agents Reed and Strickland to hunt down the mysterious Director Can they stop the Organization’s twisted plot to destroy the United StatesThe government tries desperately to stem the chaos of the deadly pandemic But is it too lat A terrorist attack who done it with romance scattered inThis book was intriguing enough a virus is released and the authorities have to figure out who did it and why I was anxious to know what would happen and be uncovered Various chapters were narrated from the perspectives of varying characters which gave a nice perspective of all of the different pieces of the puzzle but was also often confusing Many of the characters' focuses were on romantic affairs rather than the plot which seemed extraneous Some of the characters appeared once or twice and then never returned and that made the story telling seem fragmented There was not much action unlike many other books in this genre but I didn't find myself necessarily wanting Then again there didn't seem to be much of a climax The mystery was slowly but surely solved and then it was over without any excitement or unexpected reveals Worth the read for people who like the genre and reading about relationships between people
