      Now in paperback, James Abel unleashes another heartstopping Joe Rush 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 Somalia.

      Joe arrives on the scene to find an entire group of researchers 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.

      Now, Joe must stop a well-coordinated, meticulously-planned attack that could overturn global stability and kill millions…
