From the Publisher
At New York''s JFK Airport, an arriving Boeing 777 taxiing along
a runway suddenly stops dead. All the shades have been drawn, all
communication channels have mysteriously gone quiet. Dr. Eph
Goodweather, head of a CDC rapid-response team investigating
biological threats, boards the darkened plane--and what he finds
makes his blood run cold.
A terrifying contagion has come to the unsuspecting city, an
unstoppable plague that will spread like all-consuming
wildfire--lethal, merciless, hungry . . . vampiric. And in a
pawnshop in Spanish Harlem, an aged Holocaust survivor knows that
the war he has been dreading his entire life is finally here.
In one week, Manhattan will be gone. In one month, the country.
In two months . . . the world.
