One of the earlier novels with an AIDS theme. Title is an intelligence term indicating secret or restricted information.. "A straightforward case of a missing [geneticist] escalates into a far-reaching intelligence cover-up, a hydra of governmental unaccountablility, with tentacles extending into the upper echelons of military and corporate America and down into the several top-secret research laboratories set up in Latin America over the last fifteen years. The time is now. The setting is central and northern California."
