Armed with unique malware, two sophisticated female terrorists try to take down the medical infrastructures of Spain, France and Israel in an effort to negotiate the independence of the Basques, Corsicans and Palestinians. Their plot begins with a bombing at the Barcelona rail station, a deliberate distraction to mislead authorities. The simultaneous hospital admission of many uninjured by-standers creates an additional layer of mystery for senior MI-5 agent Elizabeth Foster. Once again, she calls on leading Stanford epidemiologist Jake Evans, and his Oxford colleague, Christopher Rose, microbiologist and IT expert, to help her decipher whether the two seemingly unrelated events are in fact connected. As Spanish government officials, anti-terror experts, and the trio of heroes race to solve the mystery, pressure mounts with the pending arrival in Spain of international heads of state for a Middle East policy summit. Dreams of Troy delves into loyalty, revenge and passion that flares in the heat of danger.
