(From the publisher):
When Peter Braddock planned the perfect crime, he never imagined the horror he was about to unleash on Britain. The circumstances were bizarre - the abandoned cruiser he had spotted in the English Channel... the fearfully mutilated body in one of the cabins... the blood. But how could he ever guess what would happen when he boarded it? The stricken boat held a gruesome secret. Clinging to it and travelling with it were the tiny carriers of a fearsome disease...
When the first cases were reported in France and Spain, the authorities refused to believe the evidence. The dreaded Bilharzia parasite couldn't be affecting Europe - could it? But when it reaches Britain they have to face the truth. Irreversible madness and hideous death follow in the wake of this creeping terror. And it is soon a race against time to prevent the whole country from sinking into utter chaos...
