Summary from Goodreads:
When researcher Jawad Khattib gasps his last breath on the Massachusetts General Hospital floor, the Department of Homeland Security wants answers—especially after a preliminary autopsy suggests he died of radiation poisoning. What exactly was Khattib working on? And who was he working for? DHS Agent Lee Jansen is rushed to Boston and paired with expert toxicologist Dr. Emma Hess to crack the case. All evidence points to the creation of a dirty bomb, but the clues seem too clean, too obvious. During the course of their investigation, they discover the horrible truth. This new weapon is far more deadly than anyone had expected. It isn’t just capable of killing hundreds—it’s capable of killing hundreds of thousands. Can they stop what’s been set in motion by a madman with a dangerous secret before it’s too late?
Looking for your next thriller page turner? This may be the book for you. I typically don't read alot of these types of books, but I was intrigued by the premise of the story and I am glad to say I did.
The book appealed to me because it was not just a mystery, but because of the medical story line as well. I was curious about what it would be that would cause something like this to happen. (Yes, I know that is vague, but remember no spoilers here!)
The agents in the book use their technical expertise to try to make sense of what could be a very dangerous situation. This book leaves you wanting to keep reading just so that you know what happens.
I enjoyed the book. Thanks for the opportunity.
