Across America a mysterious disease is turning ordinary people into raving, paranoid murderers who inflict brutal horrors on strangers, themselves, and even their own families. Working under the government’s shroud of secrecy, CIA operative Dew Phillips crisscrosses the country trying in vain to capture a live victim. With only decomposing corpses for clues, CDC epidemiologist Margaret Montoya races to analyze the science behind this deadly contagion. She discovers that these killers all have one thing in common–they’ve been contaminated by a bioengineered parasite. Meanwhile Perry Dawsey awakens one morning to find several mysterious welts growing on his body. Soon Perry finds himself acting and thinking strangely . . .  he is infected. The fate of the human race may well depend on the bloody war Perry must wage with his own body.
