The Duggars are conscripted by the CIA—well, not really. The dad is a doctor who was conscripted without his real knowledge or agreement. This is a doctor who deals with biological weapons of mass destruction often using his wife and many children as cover (and he hasn’t told them yet). This time they have an invite to go to China for a geography competition (but that’s peripheral to the story). The author is a doctor who has a bunch of kids and the family helped write the book.
Don’t tell anyone, but the kids are the stars of the book. The spy himself is a bit of a dolt, yet he gets the job done after a lot of physical pain described as only a doctor could. His wife is a true gem. The young adult children are wise far beyond their years. It still surprises me how believable this story is.
So, it is tense, believable, enjoyable, and engrossing. I had a hard time putting it down. The proposed mass bio-weapon is convincingly explained and scary. It can be used to target specific types of people genetically. The bad guys are really bad. The problem is severe. The characters are engaging and real. The dialog is genuine. It’s a fun read. There are no heads exploding in a red mist, no naked sluts, no preaching, just a good family who must be believers to judge by how they react to trouble, danger, and need. I definitely recommend this one.
