With U.S. intelligence agencies wracked by internal power struggles and paralyzed by bureaucracy, the President was forced to establish his own clandestine group--Covert-One--only activated as a last resort, when the threat is on a global scale and time is running out.

In northern Uganda, an American special forces team is decimated by a group of normally peaceful farmers. Video of the attack shows even women and children possessing almost supernatural speed and strength, consumed with a rage that makes them immune to pain, fear, and all but the most devastating injuries.

Covert-One's top operative, army microbiologist Colonel Jon Smith, is sent to investigate the attack and finds evidence of a parasitic infection that for centuries has been causing violent insanity and then going dormant. This time, though, it's different. The parasite had been purposely kept alive and crudely transmitted in acts of terrorism. Now the director of Iranian Intelligence is in Uganda trying to obtain this biological weapon to unleash it on the West.

Smith and his team are ambushed and cut off from all outside support just as they begin to suspect that forces much more powerful than the Iranians are in play-forces that can be traced to Washington itself.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A Different Calibre The Ares Decision's title should give one a clue as to what the story would involve, but as a Covert One novel this addition to the series lacked most of the witty repartee that readers are used to seeing from the main characters. Jon Smith is sent to Uganda to investigate when a top US covert operations team is overwhelmed by a group of unarmed villagers bleeding from their heads. An African warlord and an Iranian leader each want to solidify and expand their power, using the same parasite as a weapon. It only takes one infection to utterly destroy a population: a village, a city, or a country. It will take a tremendous effort from Jon and Covert One to stop the threat, but if the infection makes it back to the United States, the country may not survive it.
