A plague that will cause the death of millions. A plague that will destroy countries. A plague that will plunge the world into a dark age. A plague that will make nobody sick. This thriller is reminiscent of Michael Crichton's best.

When a Muslim cleric predicts planes will fall from the sky, America braces for a terrorist attack. But when the prediction proves true, the real cause is far more terrifying: a microbe that eats oil, effectively destroying all gas-operated mechanisms.

Dr. Gregory Gillette, an epidemiologist with the Centers for Disease Control, is a disease hunter specializing in microbes that attack human beings. When the Pentagon taps him to be part of the Rapid Response Team assembled to track and kill the devastating Delta-3 bacteria, he quickly discovers that his expertise is ignored, his presence meaningless. He understands the devastation the microbe could cause, and his far more chilling theory is that the microbe is synthetic and the work of terrorists. When no one will listen, Gilette must take it upon himself to stop the epidemic only he can foresee. As the world's economy grinds to a crashing halt, Gilette races against the clock to find the source of the microbe and its antidote.
