It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where
business professionals unwound with a few drinks . . .until
something went terribly wrong. And after twelve minutes of chaos
and violence, eighty people lay dead.
Lieutenant Eve Dallas is trying to sort out the inexplicable
events. Surviving witnesses talk about seeing things-monsters and
swarms of bees. They describe sudden, overwhelming feelings of fear
and rage and paranoia. When forensics gives its report, the mass
delusions make more sense: It appears the
bar patrons were exposed to a cocktail of chemicals and illegal
drugs that could drive anyone to temporary insanity-if not kill
But that doesn't explain who would unleash such horror-or why. And
if Eve can't figure it out fast, it could happen again, anytime,
anywhere. Because it's airborne. . . .
