A MAN-MADE PLAGUE
No disease is more deadly or more enigmatic than the genetically engineered virus known as “Saint Vitus.” Seconds after infecting its victim, the neurotoxin causes massive hemorrhaging, madness, convulsions and inevitably … death. Experiments show the airborne virus is four hundred time more lethal as conventional neurotoxins – with characteristics that make it ideal for covert biological warfare.
A MADMAN’S PLOT
Since its unauthorized “birth,” the abomination has been the U.S. Army’s best-kept secret – until its theft. Now in the hands of bin Laden’s most dangerous terrorists known only as “Gorgon,” Saint Vitus becomes a terrible weapon with truly unimaginable potential for destruction. When Gorgon targets the U.S. Eastern Seaboard, a desperate president orders all military resources directed at the virus’ destruction – even if that means unleashing a thermonuclear hell.
