When Will bolts, his first thought is to look up Julie Ponte, an old love living in Vienna. Meredith Morley, an executive with Vyrogen, the company conducting experiments on Will, launches a team of vicious German brothers who specialize in brutality to hunt for the escaped test subject. With both sets of trackers on their heels, Will and Julie reestablish their relationship while trying to stay alive and one step ahead of their pursuers.
This is an intelligent but technical novel, one that occasionally includes too much scientific detail. The story works until the last third of the novel, when supposedly brilliant and capable people make some pretty basic mistakes that propel the cast of characters into an ending that does little but set up an obvious sequel.

The Calypso Directive: A Novel by Brian Andrews -
Encoded in his DNA is a mutation that provides immunity from disease for all who possess it, source code that Vyrogen Pharmaceuticals aims to commercialize as a multi-billion-dollar gene therapy. Against all odds, Foster escapes his laboratory prison and steals a virulent strain of bubonic plague as insurance. To help unravel the mystery inside him, Foster contacts the only person he can trust: a former lover and microbiologist living in Vienna. But soon the two become fugitives, hunted across Europe.
Under the guise of averting a plague pandemic, Vyrogen hires an elite, underground think tank to track down Foster.
