Project Bonfire

The Russian state of Sverdlosk was the Soviet Union’s center of fringe military research during the cold war. There, terrifying biological weapons, capable of inflicting unspeakable horror, were intensively researched and developed. Every single medium and long range armament in the Soviet arsenal was repurposed to deliver these lethal agents to anywhere on the globe. The cold war eventually ended. The research did not.

Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.
Sun Tzu – "THE ART OF WAR"

I thoroughly enjoyed this original and timely story of how bioterroism can take a decidedly unexpected turn. Wrapping multiple lines of science into the plot and giving clear (if at times overly detailed) explanations of complex theory was clever and well done. When I was finished I felt like I knew the protagonists as they well developed. A good effort by an author who knows his science and politics.

5.0 out of 5 stars I highly recommend this debut novel by Lou Sparanges

Enjoyed reading this novel because it was infused with science and medical realities. The story line is one that is eerily plausible in today's world. I would like to see a sequel to this book because I enjoyed the subject, the writing, and the plot, and would hope the author would extrapolate on the effects of the events set in motion in the book. I like this author and hope to see much more from him in the future.
