Description

From New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen, a terrifying novel of deadly proportions as an ER doctor tries to determine the cause and cure of a fatal and mysterious virus before it becomes an epidemic. The quiet overnight shift at Springer Hospital ER suits Dr. Toby Harper just fine—until she admits a man in critical condition from a possible viral infection of the brain. The delirious man barely responds to treatment—and then disappears without a trace. Before Toby can find him, a second case occurs, revealing a terrifying fact: the virus can only be spread through direct tissue exchange. Following a trail of death that winds from a pregnant sixteen-year-old prostitute to her own home, Toby discovers the unthinkable: the epidemic didn't just happen—someone let it loose....

Professional reviews

"Dr. Toby Harper, an emergency room physician, is curious about the symptoms of a patient who is brought in one evening. Her curiosity leads her to a dangerous discovery that involves researchers' attempts to give senior citizens back their youth. George Guidall's performance immediately draws in the listener. With perfect pacing, he captures the drama and tension without overdoing it. This story is filled with medical details (Gerritsen is a physician) that are often graphic, bloody, and gory--definitely not for the squeamish. S.S.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
