Dear Agent/Publisher,

Could a DNA based nanocomputer be programmed to produce a live deadly virus? This is the premise of my 80,000 word biotechnical thriller – “The True Virus”. This novel uses plot techniques like those found in Tom Clancy’s and Michael Crichton’s books.

After the main CIA computer is hacked into, John Brookfield (CIA computer specialist), goes to Israel to work with Sarah Stein (Co-developer of DNA computer technology) to find out if the DNA component of the CIA system has been compromised. John is shocked when one of his fellow CIA agents in Israel has his BlackBerry hit by a bullet and the device explodes in his hand. Worst yet, an epidemic breaks out and the agent dies. With Sarah’s help, John discovers that a Hamas bioterrorist was the hacker who programmed the CIA’s system to produce the real live virus that caused the epidemic.

Since I have a B.S. degree in Microbiology and an A.S. degree in Computer Systems, I feel confident with the technical information presented in this book. As for writing and marketing this novel, I’ve learned a lot from my first published thriller – “Green Power”. My last Google search for “Green Power by Charles Vrooman” ended up with 10 pages of references to my book. Green Power was awarded the 2008 Gold Medallion from Sierra Dreams Press and has received good reviews.

If you would like to see the manuscript, I can send it via e-mail or snail mail. Thank you for your time and attention. I look forward to hearing from you.

Charles Vrooman
