(From the publisher):
In an iceberg off the coast of Alaska, a virtual fountain of death is waiting to erupt--a bacteria so virulent it could if released, cause a worldwide catastrophe. On the Navy research ship Global Explorer, forensic pathologist Joanna Blalock and an elite team of scientist, microbiologist, and medical researches have been gathered to uncover the secrets of this murderous toxin.
But when people on board the Explorer begin to die from unusual causes, Joanna is the only one trained to decode the clues to murder that the dead bodies may hold--and the only one to realize that time is running out--and the only one whose skills, courage, and compassion are enough to challenge man and nature at their most savage.
