Inhaltsangabe: What if the ten plagues from the Book of Exodus were visited on America today? Death stalks the land in this blockbuster thriller, and all that stands between us and a cataclysm of biblical proportions is a maverick virologist and an unlikely team of heroes.
In California, a boy dies from anthrax. In Kentucky, a strange, unstoppable contagion is wiping out stables of Thoroughbred horses. Called in to help diagnose these two cases, noted virologist Jack D. Bryne discovers that they share a chilling link: They bear uncanny similarities to the fifth and sixth plagues described in Exodus.
Suddenly, he finds himself on the trail of a morbidly brilliant serial killer -- a man with a dangerously sophisticated knowledge of toxins who is bent on raining biblical retribution on America. To stop him, Bryne must join forces with an FBI agent, a young religious scholar and a news magazine reporter. Pooling their talents, they launch an investigation that takes them across the country, deep into the ancient past, to the frontiers of medical science and face-to-face with one of the most unforgettable villains ever created.
The countdown is on, and as the death toll mounts, Bryne must risk everything to stop this crazed killer from unleashing his final, apocalyptic masterpiece -- the eleventh plague.
