Mind Virus: No One Who Believes Is Safe
by Charles Kowalski

About the Book

Robin Fox, peace-loving professor of world religions, wants nothing more than to leave his dark past as a military interrogator behind him. But when an unknown suspect tries to disperse a deadly virus in downtown Washington, Fox is unwillingly drawn back into the shadowy world of intelligence.

The FBI and CIA automatically suspect Islamic terrorists, but Fox digs deeper to discover the far more frightening truth: a global conspiracy to eradicate all religion from the face of the earth…by deadly force if necessary.

"A thoroughly-researched, thoughtful novel regarding the nature of belief…also well-plotted, nicely paced, and packed with action. In Mind Virus, Kowalski skillfully tackles some of the largest issues of our time – namely religion and terrorism and their roles in shaping who we are as a global people. A brilliant, riveting read." – Colorado Book Review
