ABOUT THE BOOK:

Siberian hospitals are overrun with people dying from a disease that appears uncannily like the Spanish Flu of 1918. When Dr. Susan Hutchinson from the World health Organization and a top-secret group of government scientists arrive, they are met with a stubborn Russian bureaucracy determined to ignore the problem.

Despite their lack of cooperation, Dr. Hutchinson learns that the outbreak began with a professor names Weigel—who has now disappeared. The scientists, including mark Carlson and Nora Richards from TSI: The Gabon Virus, search for a means of dealing with the outbreak and for Weigel himself, who seems to have been in collusion with the head of Return to Earth, a notorious eco-terrorist group.

When Weigel is killed during a kidnapping attempt, Return to Earth makes off with a mysterious device called the Influenza Bomb, which has the potential to destroy all of mankind. In a race against time—with the entire world at stake—Dr. Hutchinson must stop Return to Earth from spreading the contamination.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:

What did you think about the book? I loved it, but I also loved The Gabon Virus too. I'm really loving this series and look forward to more. I hope it is more than a trilogy and will just continue for a long while.
