Summary
  • "From a former US government advisor on agro-terrorism comes a ripped-from-the-headlines debut thriller about a global plot to release a deadly virus and the elite response team who must try to stop it. When the outbreak of a terrifyingly gruesome new virus, which threatens to overcome the entire East Coast, is traced to an extremist group in Southeast Asia, the race to find a vaccine and stop the bio-terrorist conspiracy begins. Government epidemiologist Mariah Rossi must leave the safety of her lab to help fellow scientist and covert CIA agent Curt Kennedy track the disease back to its source. Their worldwide net leads them to an underground lab in the jungles of the Philippines, then to a deadly and climactic battle in coral reefs near Malaysian Borneo, and finally back to America where the virus must be contained. For fans of Michael Crichton and Richard Preston, this chilling, realistic thriller is a terrifying reminder of how vulnerable humans are to biological threats--and in this instance, just one tick bite away from catastrophe"--
