Description
James Abel—author of the electrifying Joe Rush novels Protocol Zero and White Plague—unleashes another heartstopping thriller in which an unholy plague from the past has been awakened...
While trying to alleviate the suffering of thousands in drought-stricken, war-torn Africa, ex-Marine doctor and bio-terror expert Joe Rush receives a plea for help from a member of his old military unit, currently working as a geologist in a chaotic region of Somalia.
Joe arrives on the scene to find an entire group showing horrific symptoms of an ancient sickness once thought to be sent as punishment from heaven. But before Joe can get hard evidence identifying the illness, a local warlord takes matters into his own hands—and the proof is gone just as the illness breaks out back in the United States.
This outbreak is not a curse from God. It’s a well-coordinated, meticulously planned attack with a specific goal that could overturn global stability and kill millions. And the only one who can stop the downfall of civilization is Joe Rush...

        Africa provides the backdrop for Abel’s exciting third epidemic thriller (after 2015’s Protocol Zero). Dr. Joe Rush, a retired Marine colonel, and his partner, Eddie Nakamura, are providing food to starving people in south Sudan, but their main mission is to look into rumors that an “Islamic splinter group” is concocting a new bioweapon. Joe alters his plans after receiving a distress call from geology professor Lionel Nash, a former soldier of his who’s doing research in Somalia. Lionel tells Joe that he and his colleagues have been stricken with a horrible unknown disease and are being held hostage by a militia leader who will allow only two doctors to come to their assistance. Joe and Eddie arrive at the site in Somalia to find Lionel and company badly disfigured. The stakes rise when Joe learns that similar symptoms have surfaced in the U.S. The essential plot line—a frantic race to stop the bad guys and minimize the body count—is nothing special, but Rush, who remains scarred by the death of his fiancée, is more than a cookie-cutter lead. Agent: Esther Newberg, ICM.
