(From the publisher):
In the men's room at LAX, an unidentified passenger has been found murdered. Authorities suspect he has ties to a terrorist organization. But the answer to who killed him and why remains frustratingly out of reach. Called by the FBI to perform the top secret autopsy is forensic pathologist Joanna Blalock, but even she and her partner, homicide detective Jake Sinclair, can't foresee the implications of the victims's death.
Then a man carrying symptoms of the deadly smallpox virus is brought into Memorial Hospital. He won't be the last. The message is terrifyingly clear. Victim by victim, a war has begun. As a the stakes are raised impossibly high, a nightmare scenario holds the world in its grip. And it's up to Blalock and Sinclair to stop the nightmare from coming true...
