It's the second decade of the twenty-first century, and terrorism has escalated almost beyond control. The Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem has been blown to bits by extremists, and, in retaliation, thousands have died in another major attack on the United States. The War on Terror has reached a deadly stalemate. Now the FBI has been dispatched to deal with a new menace. A plague targeted to ethnic groups-Jews or Muslims...?r both-has the potential to wipe out entire populations. But the FBI itself is under political assault. There's a good chance agents William Griffin, Fouad Al-Husam, and Jane Rowland will be part of the last class at Quantico. As the young agents hunt a brilliant homegrown terrorist, they join forces with veteran bio-terror expert Rebecca Rose. But the plot they uncover-and the man they chase-prove to be far more complex than anyone expects.

Professional reviews

"Greg Bear's book is slightly misnamed since little of the action takes place at the FBI training center. The story is about an American's plan to unleash a biological weapon. It's the world of the near future, but little has changed. The weapons have improved, but politics and people are much the same. Jeff Woodman, who must have a roomful of Earphones Awards, is one of AUDIOFILE's Top 50 Voices of the Century. He does more than his share to keep this plot moving, giving voice to a developmentally disabled man, a woman with severe facial injuries, and at least a dozen characters of varying ages, races, and accents. Strong writing makes QUANTICO a cut above the average thriller. M.S. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
