Following two nonfiction books, James Lilliefors makes a terrifyingly realistic thriller debut with VIRAL.
Cagey Charles Mallory is a private intelligence contractor. His firm, D.M.A. Associates, has an equally secretive meaning. DMA is sort of a private sector SEALs group of good-hearted mercenaries, in the vein of John Gilstrap’s Jonathan Grave series. Charlie’s brother, Jon, is an investigative reporter who resents Charlie for not being in his life for the past decade --- and not attending their father’s funeral a few months before. For the greater good, Charlie has his reasons. If he directly contacts Jon, he’ll appear on a surveillance grid operated by The Administrator.
