Description: This thought-provoking near-future thriller focuses on two young FBI agents: William Griffin, the son of a legendary FBI lawman, struggles through training; Fouad Al-Husam, who expects suspicion for this heritage and Muslim faith, finds himself instead sent on super-secret missions to the Middle East. Playing a minor supporting role in their Quantico classmate, Jane Rowland. When a quiet man with mismatched eyes starts telling certain fanatics that he can make gene-keyed anthrax to destroy their hereditary enemies, Griffin and Al-Husam form an unlikely team, headed by veteran agent Rebecca rose, to handle the threat.
