I read this book about 20-Apr-2011. This is the first time I've read this book. The book is copyright 2008. This note was last modified Thursday, 16-Jun-2011 20:16:40 PDT.

This note contains spoilers for the book.


By Warren Murphy and James Mullaney.

Germ warfare. Djinn getting caught up in modern jihadi Islam. And some connection back to Sinanju that is never really explained (the Djinn looks Korean).

The 20th 9/11 hijacker has a super bio-weapon in his family Koran, which he has somehow been allowed to keep with him all this time. I think that's intended to be an example of stupid behavior caused by liberals; there's a lot of political nastiness in the assumptions of this book. It's interesting, since Remo and Chiun aren't at all Christian.

Anyway, it's water-activated, and the hijacker himself is immune (as he is to everything else).

A few bits of it get out, but in the end Sinanju triumphs.
