On the night of the State of the Union address, President James Allaire expects to give the speech of his career. But no one foresees the horrific turn of events that leads him to quarantine everyone in the Capitol building.

A terrorist group calling itself "Genesis" has unleashed a highly contagious virus into the building, and the only one who fully knows its deadly consequences is the president himself. Desperate, he turns to virologist Griffin Rhodes, whose alleged theft of the microbe landed him in a maximum-security federal prison. Griff knows he's innocent but is forced to barter with the government: his attempt at a cure in exchange for his release.

Journal Entry 2 by wingbooklady331wing at Cape Coral, Florida USA on Friday, December 09, 2016
Tickets to the State of the Union Address are as hard to come by, but in Day 1 of this Michael Palmer thriller, it's not the place to be. A domestic terrorist organization that calls itself Genesis manages to unleash smoke bombs laced with a lethal virus into the House Chambers in the middle of the President's speech. The President, who commissioned the creation of the virus as a bioweapon, is the only person in the room who knows how deadly it is and commences to seal the building, quarantining all of the attendees. In the meantime, Griffin Rhodes, a scientist framed for stealing the virus, is in prison. The President springs him so that Griff can get back to work on a cure for the virus. Angela Fletcher, Washington Post reporter and Griff's ex-lover, becomes involved. The power-hungry Speaker of the House and foe of the President, Ursula Ellis, agrees to work with Genesis in exchange for a promised cure and elevation to the Presidency. I found the political infighting and corruption frightening.
