Spiral, by Paul McEuen
Gory techno-thriller, in a Michael Crichton vein. Nobel prize winning Cornell professor has been hiding a terrible secret about bioterrorism since the end of WWII, but international developments between Japan and China raise the ghosts of illegal programs, and combined with new nano-technology, these long hidden vials of deadly weapons now threaten the world. Parts were pretty horribly gory, but the plot moved along briskly and well.
