This is a big story featuring the recovery of a top secret and extremely dangerous weapon that had been stolen from a government laboratory by a compulsive gambler and used to pay a gambling debt.
After the theft was discovered, FBI agents Casey Duke and Maggie Norris were assigned to recover the weapon and keep the information of its existence away from the press.
The thief was a scientist who had been working on a super-secret government project to reduce a strain of anthrax to a highly concentrated form and bond it with other chemicals in water for use as a purification agent. It became extremely toxic and unstable in the laboratory and was scrubbed as too dangerous for its original mission.
The only copies of the concentrate were locked in a safe, awaiting safe destruction when it was stolen. The concentrate had unique properties that allowed it to reproduce itself by attaching itself to other chemicals normally found in regular drinking water. If allowed to escape, it would proliferate itself and contaminate the world's water supply. Finding and recovering the concentrate intact was vital to human survival.
Before Casey could get to the thief, the material had been delivered to a mob organization to pay a gambling debt. The thief had assured the mob that it was the ultimate weapon of war and worth millions on the world market.
The live-in girl friend of the mob boss was the daughter of a wealthy renegade, American expatriate and narcotics addict living in Switzerland. The girl suggested that her father would be the one to sell the material because of his experience in international trading. The material be sent to him that same day.
The renegade American was a member of the super-secret Eagle Society. All of the members were of royal lineage. Their plan was to return a disintegrating world back to the monarchical governmental system. The Eagle Society already had a plan using highly concentrated natural gas as an explosive to disrupt most of the major cities of the world at a future time and thereby bringing down the existing governments by internal wars.
Their plan was well underway when the anthrax concentrate was brought to their attention. The original natural gas plans were scrapped immediately and the concentrate was purchased to replace it. They set the wheels in motion to duplicate the anthrax.
Casey Duke and his associates followed the anthrax trail all over the world, beginning in the United States, through Europe, Scandinavia and the Balkans. Many suspenseful events took place throughout the story.
