The Bat Corona Virus Pandemic that struck the world recently was one of the greatest Black Swan events in the last hundred years. It has infected around 167 million people globally and left over 3.5 million dead. The global economy was devastated.

What caused this Pandemic? Was it a natural epidemic? Was it genetically engineered in the Wuhan Institute of Virology? Did it leak out from there accidentally? Or was it deliberately released as part of a biological warfare attack designed to cause disarray and collapse of nations & set them up for military strikes and economic devastation? Was it a biological Pearl Harbour? If so – who triggered it and why?

This book is the third in a series of War Gaming & Scenario Generation exercises in the Tom Clancy tradition. The war game serves as inspiration for a fictional narration in the form of a racy novel. In this book we explore “What if scenario” of – was COVID-19 a Biological Warfare first strike and how exactly it could have happened in China. It is an entirely fictional account of a hypothetical scenario that is chillingly probable and based on detailed research & analysis.

In 2019, CIA tips India off on a sinister effort to engineer Bat Corona Viruses in Wuhan. Two Indian agents, Col Dusty Bhardwaj of the Special Forces and Dr Ayesha Mir of RAW are sent in to find out what is happening. They uncover a bizarre plot to weaponise the virus and use it for a biological warfare – first strike that will set the stage for an invasion of Taiwan and incursions into Ladakh.

Read on for the twists and turns of a bizarre plot that could actually have happened.
