This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Mar 29, P. Richter rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: People who love thrillers and heros. The amount of research that went into this novel is mind boggling. If I could give more than 5 stars for the novel I certainly would. James as in James Bond better watch out. Jason Stouter is here, the action hero of our time, the time of Middle East chaos.
Jason is pulled into a complex plot targeting people with genetic middle eastern heritage, with a deadly biological agent. The details about the weapons, the travel, the weather and the training necessary for fighting a dangerous megalomaniac The amount of research that went into this novel is mind boggling.
The details about the weapons, the travel, the weather and the training necessary for fighting a dangerous megalomaniac terrorist are totally realistic. The action scenes are exciting and dramatic. The wonderful twist at the end will leave you wondering about the future, when scientists rather than politicians decide a possible new fate for the world.
Apr 12, Joanne rated it really liked it. This was an intense story primarily because of the science aspect. I liked all the spy stuff and it was interesting to see the interactions between various intelligence agencies. I loved the relationship between Jason and Sali.
We'd love to invite you in
They were both intelligent, experienced, and had complete trust in each other. The idea of small groups of people with power and money having access to the science and technology to create biological weapons is terrifying. I have no doubt this is actually happening in the This was an intense story primarily because of the science aspect. I have no doubt this is actually happening in the world right now.
Even though they had good intentions, the power wielded by the Dalton Gang is still morally wrong.

Their little group decided how the world should be and created a weapon to make it that way. I don't know if the ends justify the means. They basically carried out biological warfare against groups of people. They had to know their creation would be hijacked by others and that mutation was always possible. That is the scary part. Research is going on all over the world into gene therapy and gene manipulation with the best intentions--to cure disease, to end suffering, to make the world a better place. It reminds me of the scene from "the dinosaur movie" where one of the characters says that they took the work of others and used it to suit their purposes.
That is exactly what terrorists will do with this technology. It's a moral dilemma. The Dalton Gang did what it did for what they thought was a very good reason.
Unfortunately, terrorists do what they do for what they also consider to be good reasons, and this book also told us that story by adding in the character of Zufar. There is no turning back science, however. The genetic code has been cracked and is available to anyone with a scientific background.
Who knows what horrors they are cooking up? I liked the way each chapter started with "Breaking News" because it showed how vitally important the roles of the characters were in the overall world picture. I especially liked the one that talked about women taking to the streets, against religious and political rules, to demonstrate for peace. Of course, that also helped to spread the disease, but the effects of the disease allowed them to do it in the first place. This was a very good book with a terrifying message about the potential uses of genetic manipulation. I thought that was the main purpose of the book.
All the intelligence, weapons, agents and double agents were part of the secondary storyline, even though it included the majority of action, conversation, planning, and violent confrontations. Genetic manipulation was shown as both good and bad and the consequences of each were shown. The world has moved one more step forward in its ability to destroy itself. The only reason I am giving it four stars, instead of five, is because of the way the book ended. Once again, someone used genetics to achieve a purpose he believed in.
The characters in the book seemed to think this was a good thing which, over the long-term, it would be without considering the immediate consequences to the world.

- Review of Codon Zero () — Foreword Reviews!
Through the Florida Keys, Jackson Hole, Boston, Israel and Jordan, Jason struggles to find out why Zufar needs to wield the deadliest weapon the Middle East has ever seen to realize his ultimate vision. The four travel to Israel, where they fight to prevent World War III and to ensure the antidote to Codon Zero gets into the capable hands of Arab and Israeli doctors before Zufar can release more of the virus into the population.
Pitting good guy against bad guy, his story recalls the pulp fiction of yesteryear. Codon Zero is a well-researched and imaginative foray into the world of bio-terrorism. It is perfect for those who like a story that moves at a swift clip.
