One by one, the townspeople of Lyle, New Hampshire, are dying. A dreaded and destructive disease has invaded the sleepy New England village, and no one can stop its spread. The army has quarantined the town and conflicting secret government agencies are in a desperate race against time to discover the cause and the cure. Only Alex Brandes, a wayward son of the town who returns to help in the crisis, has the key to solve the mystery. It is Alex's brother, Dr. Peter Brandes, who is suspected of creating the genetically based disease. But Alex soon finds that the virulent illness is neither his greatest nor most immediate threat. Although he is acting on no more than the chance that he might succeed in deciphering his now-dead brother's cryptic notes, forces reaching far beyond the small town's borders decide Brandes must be stopped.
