The Fifth Column: the world's most powerful and secretive organization. They run our militaries. They run our governments. They run our terrorist cells. Recruited as a child, Sophia is a deniable operative for the Fifth Column. Like all operatives, Sophia's DNA has been altered to augment her senses and her mind is splintered into programmed subsets. On a routine mission in Iran something goes catastrophically wrong. Bugs are beginning to appear in Sophia's programming and the mission spins out of control. High-speed chases, gun fights, helicopter battles, super soldiers and enhanced abilities are all in the mix in this edge-of-your-seat action-packed tech-thriller. Perfect for fans of Matthew Reilly, The Chimera Vector melds sci-fi with sizzling espionage action.
