A hearty sized government intrigue and possible world disaster book to sink your teeth into. I would call it a "Man's Book" but don't want to get smacked by the PC police...but I would.
We have virulent plague bombs and government espionage and intrigue. Possible nuclear annihilation. Government agents and hardcore American Heroes. Anderson Harp is a 30 year Marine veteran - there's not going to be any gentle passages and tenderness here.
Want a "kick the enemy in the teeth" novel? Go get this one.

In the pitch-black cargo hole of the Pakistani airline freighter
crossing the Atlantic, a wooden crate filled with levers for a weaving
machine also had another object buried inside. If it makes it to its
delivery point, an American city would become uninhabitable for a
century. In this chilling thriller, Retribution is more than the story
of a deep-cover mission to stop a terrorist with a core stolen from an
Islamabad nuclear weapon. Here, the operative does much more to flush
out the target than a hunt and chase. He becomes a carrier of a highly
contagious strain of a deadly disease.
In this oh so authentic story,
author Andy Harp draws upon his experiences as a Marine who has served
across the globe to create a uniquely real novel filled with breakneck
thrills and plot twists. With action that flies from New York to
London, from Peshawar deep into the mountains of the Hindu Kush, and
from Islamabad to Chicago, Retribution weaves political conspiracy and a
perilous, intelligence operation, hi-tech military technology and
deadly current events, all with the crucible of a determined Jason
Bourne like character in conflict with just as determined a killer, into
a classic “mission” thriller that delivers the kind of nail-biting
suspense, realism and a kicker surprise at the end that is in the style
of Ludlum, and the best of Thor and Flynn. The story is engrossing,
the hero is remarkable, and the personal cost he pays for both his
survival and success changes the man.
The remote and impenetrable Pakistani mountains have offered refuge to the worst enemies of civilization since the time of Alexander. Now, the world faces a new challenge. Reared from birth to harbor a seething hatred, a lone man is about to unleash a firestorm that will rage for centuries. And the window of opportunity to stop him is shutting much faster than Washington D.C. can hope to deal with.
A top lethal operative, Will Parker is embedded within the terrorist’s ranks to stop this catastrophic disaster. But with a nuclear core on its way to the U.S., Parker will go to any lengths to stop a biological terror more lethal than anything the USA—and the world— has ever faced.
