Event Details

Description

A page-turner that has the earmarks of an instant bestseller,” this riveting medical thriller focuses on Dr. Henry Parsons, an unlikely but appealing hero, who races to find the origins and cure of a mysterious new killer virus as it brings the world to its knees … eerily prescient indeed! At an internment camp in Indonesia, 47 people with acute hemorrhagic fever die. When microbiologist and epidemiologist Henry Parsons travels there on behalf of the World Health Organization, his findings will soon have staggering repercussions across the globe: an infected man is on his way to join the millions of worshippers in the annual Hajj to Mecca.
