In this near-future science fiction novel, war-on-terror heroics and scary drawing board technologies will keep readers on the edge of their seats. Greg Bear's Quantico pits FBI agents William Griffin and Fouad Al-Husam against apocalyptic plotters intent on destroying infidel enemies with a gene-keyed anthrax. High voltage; high velocity.
