In Boston, nine lawyers on a video conference call suddenly convulse with pain, turn chalk white, and die. In Vermont, a young woman watching her favorite sitcom meets the same grisly fate, as do a group of sewer workers in Washington DC. Whatever's killed these people is spreading fast, and the task of eradicating it falls to youthful virologist Samantha Craig and paramedic Nick Barnes, a former surgeon whose brilliant career was ruined by a crippling hand injury. When Nick and Samantha discover that the virus, named the Reaper, spreads through TVs and PCs, they realize that the information superhighway will become a killing field, with tens of millions dead, unless they can root Reaper out. Their search employs a dazzling array of actual wizardry, from Mylar body paint to stealth helicopters to CIA-bred swarms of insects, and leads them to a suavely megalomaniacal, up-from-the-slums, high-tech billionaire, an icily ingenious female hacker, and a high-powered cabal that will do anything to "save" the world from technology, even if that means killing us all.
Drawing on the latest medical and technological research and folding in deftly realized characters, Ben Mezrich crafts a relentless page-turning tale at once bleeding-edge and utterly believable.
