Dead Earth: The Green Dawn (Book 1)
by Mark Justice & David T. Wilbanks
Something bad has happened in Nevada. Rumors fly about plagues and secret government experiments. In Serenity, New Mexico, Deputy Sheriff Jubal Slate has his hands full. It seems that half the town, including his mother and his boss, are sick from an unusual malady. Even more worrisome is the oddly-colored dawn sky. Soon, the townspeople start dying. And they won't dead.
