A Novel by Robert Landori

Baghdad, October 2001. Chemical Ali, Saddam Hussein’s cousin, has a Weapon of Mass Destruction – human, new variety Creutzfeldt-Jakob (Mad Cow) Disease against which there is no known cure.
Ali plans to weaponize the virus in bulk, disguised as surgical glue, at a Hungarian facility, but first needs a vaccine to protect the True Believers against this deadly virus.
He learns that the Canadian scientist, Jason Moscovitch, is feverishly working on such a vaccine. Ali recruits an Al Qaeda Snatch Team, composed of Iraqi, Bosnian and Jordanian elements, who kidnap the man. When the scientist refuses to work for the extremists the team kidnaps his mother as well.
Robert Lonsdale, a contract officer with the CIA’s Counter-Terrorism Division, is tasked to find and free Moscovitch. To succeed, he must first penetrate the unbelievably complex web of Islamic Factionalists involved in the case and then overcome European indifference to the growing menace of international terrorism.

Born in Hungary, Robert Landori, whose full surname is Landori-Hoffmann, was for most of his professional life a senior public accountant, mergers and acquisitions specialist, and a trustee in bankruptcy in the Cayman Islands.

He traveled widely throughout South America and the Caribbean, where he came into contact with international financiers, notorious con men, well-known artists and entertainers, and members of several countries' intelligence communities. Robert Landori also developed a highly charged and double-edged relationship with Castro's Cuba, and was, at one time, held in solitary confinement there for over two months on false accusations of espionage. He is now a security consultant, lecturer on money laundering and terrorism, and writer of international intrigue and espionage thrillers. He lives in Montreal, Canada.
