One man holds the cure to a mutant strain of the Eke virus—one of the most deadly of all. And for the sake of money and power, he’s holding the whole world hostage. But there’s an even greater problem: No one knows if the cure will work. Now virologist Dr. Celeste Braun must turn her scientific skills to the art of investigation–by solving the crime and finding the cure.
