The Cassandra Compact Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Cassandra Compact

Dr Jon Smith is an agent of a very secret government program. Smith's assignment is centered on the theft of smallpox virus from one of only two places where it is stored, Russia. The reader knows who stole it, who they worked for and who is in on the plot quite early in the peace, so only the reasons for the theft and how the virus will be used are left for us to follow. As always Ludlum has given us a fast paced thrill-a-minute adventure with a multitude of characters on each side of the fence.
