In the near future the world has become dystopic. Autocracies reign and democracies are scarce. With the aid of modern technology and especially artificial intelligence, the possibility for the repressed peoples to reestablish their freedom and basic rights is essentially nil and humanity cannot escape the cul-de-sac in which it finds itself.
An American scientist decides that somehow the population of the world must be drastically reduced in order to break the system and give humanity a second chance. He is a virologist at the CDC and works on viral-caused diseases in man. So it is not surprising that he chooses to create a killer-virus to attain his objective. Using genetic engineering techniques, he builds a virus which will almost cause all infected individuals to die.
However, the FBI is on his trail, albeit that this is unrelated to his sinister plan. Who will win the race? And what happen if he succeeds?
This is a fast-moving story full of suspense and intrigue that is based on science and human nature in all its beauty, cruelty and ugliness.
