Spacegate: the International Space Station's secret biowarfare project is the subject of Ann Massey's novel, The Biocide Conspiracy.
The plot hinges on the premise that a new strain of the botulinum virus has been developed on the International Space Station in contravention of the Geneva Protocol.
Fearing exposure, and worldwide condemnation, the partners are in the process of dismantling the Space Stations's secret laboratory when the US president receives word that the Head of Mission control has been shot twice, throught the head and heart. His murder and the rest of the retrieval team look like professional killings.
In an intriguing coincidence, there was a period after publication of the novel, when some ISS partners began disassociating themselves from the Space Station with NASA ceasing its shuttle service and the Russians considering leaving the station unmanned.
Made me wonder if the space station really was a biowarefare facility. Not a big stretch ... several of the partners are serial offenders.
