The third novel in the Covert-One series.
When an explosion and fire destroy part of the esteemed Pasteur Institute in Paris, cyber wizard Marty Zellerbach is left in a coma, while the body of one of the world's top computer scientists - Émile Chambord - hasn't been found at all.
At the same time in a clandestine army lab in Colorada, Lt. Col. Jon Smith is part of a team working to create a DNA computer. With his background in molecular biology, this project intrigues him: molecular computers will be the most powerful computers the world has ever seen. A single bottle of DNA can crunch more mathematics than all the conventional silicon computers on earth today.
Then Nathan Klein, the shadowy chief of Covert-One, shows up with an assignment - find Dr Chambord. It appears the Pasteur bombing was a decoy to hide the kidnapping of the scientist, because, with Marty's help, he's succeeded in building the globe's first working molecular computer. The military implications are terrifying if the computer falls into the hands of a rogue government or terrorist cell.
