The Kill Switch: A Tucker Wayne Novel (Sigma Force Novels) - 'James Rollins',  'Grant Blackwood'

Another book that really surprised me, this one is a tightly wound, linear story that really develops the lead characters well and forges a real kinetic bond between the lead character, Tucker Wayne, and his sidekick, Kane, an extremely intelligent and loyal shepherd dog. Wayne is charged by the Rollins creation of Sigma Force of extracting Dr. Bukolov out of Russia and his knowledge of a botanical organism that can affect the world positively, or negatively if it were to fall into the wrong hands (think weaponized, biological bomb). What follows is a very readable, well-flowing story that ends on a real nail-biter on the northern shores of the Great Lakes. I found myself really rooting for Kane to pull through the difficult situations that the authors put him in, and am really looking forward to more Wayne/Kane adventures in the future.
