Dr. Noah Haldane knows that humanity is overdue for a new killer flu, like the great influenza pandemic of 1919 that killed over twenty million people in less than four months. So when a mysterious new strain of flu is reported in China, he expects trouble. He soon discovers that the new disease, Acute Respiratory Collapse Syndrome, is far more deadly than SARS, killing one in four victims, regardless of their youth or health. But even as Noah and his colleagues struggle to contain the outbreak, ARCS is already spreading to Hong Kong, London, and even America. In an age when every one in the world is connected by three or fewer commercial flights, a killer bug can travel much faster than the Flu of 1919. Especially when someone is spreading the virus on purpose....Kalla, Daniel is the author of 'Pandemic', published 2005 under ISBN 9780765350848 and ISBN 076535084X.
