We gave it a B

Far from the typical FBI procedural, sci-fi author Greg Bear’s latest is a dark look at the near future. Another major terrorist attack has wracked America, the Middle East is in turmoil, and the threat of biological warfare remains despite new law-enforcement technologies (advanced bomb suits, sparrow-size aircraft cameras). After a raid on a white supremacist’s compound uncovers a potential germ cache, a group of recent FBI Academy grads (operating in an agency on the verge of closure) are tasked to stop the plotters. While the villain’s motive remains vague, Quantico confidently delivers a mix of forensic handiwork, bureaucratic insight, and futuristic speculation.
