The Kill Switch

American veterinarian James Paul Czajkowski (born August 20, 1961, pen-name James Rollins, http://www.jamesrollins.com/) writes best-selling, action-adventure, thriller novels. He gave up his veterinary practice in¬† Sacramento, California, to be a full-time author. He has also published fantasy fiction under the nom-de-plume of James Clemens. The summary of his latest thriller (15 May 2014)¬†is as follows. The US government requires an individual with¬†perfect stealth, execution, and discretion. Meet the newest recruits to the expanding Sigma Force universe – former Army Ranger Tucker Wayne and his stalwart companion, Kane, a military working dog of exceptional abilities. The mission seems simple enough: extract a pharmaceutical magnate from Russian soil, a volatile man who holds the secret to a deadly bio-weapon. Yet nothing is as it appears to be. A conspiracy of world-shattering scope unravels as Tucker and Kane struggle to keep one move ahead of their deadly enemies. From the frozen steppes of Russia to the sun-blasted mountains of South Africa and Namibia, a biological threat millions of years in the making strikes out at the heart of America. All that stands in the way from a global apocalypse: one man and his dog. But can even Tucker and Kane thwart an ecological menace out of the ancient past to save the world’s future? I hope¬†so because¬†the Wimbledon highlights programme is on¬†tonight at 8pm. My strawberries and cream are waiting.
