Description of The Gabon Virus: A Novel by Paul McCusker
TIME SCENE INVESTIGATORS An ancient disease, a modern pandemic, and the one person who offers hope for a cure has been dead for 350 years In 1666, a horrible disease took the lives of almost every person in Eyam (pronounced Eem), England. Helping the sick and the dying was the mysterious and ghostlike Blue Monk, whose strange appearance terrified even those who were comforted by him. More than three centuries later the disease has returned, more virulent than before. Every day more people are infected; every hour more die. The lives of millions rest in the hands of a bio-team -- the Time Scene Investigators -- that studies history to find cures for modern diseases. But the newest member of the team, Dr. Mark Carlson, has suffered a heartbreaking loss. With every tick of the clock the world approaches a global pandemic. A race against time becomes a race across continents -- to find a frightened boy who is carrying and spreading the disease wherever he goes, to thwart the machinations of corporate greed and fanatical sabotage, and to find the connection between a great tragedy of the past and a potential catastrophe of the present. Our present. This book may become tomorrow's headline.
