The year is 1968, and there is an epidemic that is sweeping Upstate New York, killing babies at an alarming rate. The government and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have been called in to investigate why so many babies are dying from all these diseases. They find a single doctor who is responsible for the deaths of nearly one hundred babies, but why would a doctor do this and has the government found out the whole truth? The Herculean serum is the first intelligent virus on earth. Drake Hammond never knew that on the first day of his life, he was infected with an intelligent virus that can take control of his mind at any time. Drake is a one-in-a-billion host that can fuse with the virus, and the virus uses Drake to move and spread. An encounter with the head of the CDCP when Drake is twenty-five years old starts a heart-pounding chase that leads Drake on a search to find his past and what has happened since he was a baby. Why did all those babies and people die and is Drake himself the reason why? Can Drake find those responsible for what he has become, and can he find out what is happening to him before they find him and use him to their end?
