The Altman Code by Robert Ludlum and Gayle Lynds
On the dark waterside docks of Shanghai, a photographer records cargo being secretly loaded. He’s brutally killed and his camera destroyed. Two weeks later on the dangerous high seas, the US Navy covertly tracks a Chinese ship rumoured to carry tons of chemicals for Saddam Hussein to create new biological weapons. The President cannot let the ship reach Iraq. At the same time, he doesn’t want the navy to attack and board it either, because decades of negotiations with China have at long last yielded a landmark human-rights agreement that China is willing to sign.

Fighting to keep the agreement on track, the President orders Fred Klein, head to Covert-One, to find solid proof of what the Chinese ship is ferrying. Under cover of a medical conference, operative Col. Jon Smith is sent to rendezvous in Taiwan with another agent who has acquired the ship’s true manifest. But the second agent is murdered, the proof is destroyed, and Smith is left only with a verbal message - the President’s biological father is still alive, held a prisoner by the Chinese for fifty years. Racing against the clock, Smith must find the truth about the ship, a truth that probes the deepest secrets of the Chinese ruling party. Hunted and wounded, he uncovers a terrifying international cabal whose reach extends into the darkest corners of power with a diabolical plan to thrust the world to the very brink of war.
