(From the publisher):
The year is 2005. But it could be today. An economic downturn has sent the US into the throes of depression. Middle-class riots and a crack-like designer drug, Zap 37, rip into the social fabric. A paramilitary government cabal is determined to maintain America's superpower status at any price: their weapon—the DEUS machine. DEUS has been forced on a mission to create the most powerful viral arsenal the world has ever seen. In a desperate attempt to avoid the mission and self-destruct, DEUS begins spitting out horrific new life forms that threaten the human race with an apocalyptic bio-plague. Michael Riley, an unemployed computer expert, is the only one capable of stopping the madness. But all his technical skills can't prepare him for the biggest surprise of all—the bond DEUS forms with him, the woman he loves, and a fatherless little boy who becomes something remarkable—DEUS's friend. Together they face mankind's most terrifying challenge.
