Review by: Sue McGinty on Dec. 3, 2011 :
An outbreak of a deadly new virus, an all too common event in the year 2037, is spread among international travelers. The crisis worsens and soon threatens humanity itself. Enter Will Warner and his beautiful wife Eva, reporting as a webcast investigative team. She is pursued and threatened online by the arch villain Jack, also known as the Biohacker. Her stalker claims to be the source of this "designer plague." But is he also one of the top physicians working on a cure?

Leonard Carpenter, author of numerous books in the Conan the Barbarian series, tells a taut and vivid tale, one that explores big themes of love, betrayal and redemption, as well as the universal urge to procreate versus the threat of overpopulation. His futuristic yarn plays out in far-flung locales that include a dystopian slum, a high-altitude skyport, and a futuristic hotel in the exotic new city of Benglapur.
