Cleopatra’s Needle: Maelstrom

by Tony Kayden

Drunken skinheads vandalizing Central Park’s Cleopatra’s Needle obelisk on a sweltering night, set off an unearthly chain of events, unleashing an ancient alien organism, dormant for centuries. One by one, animals and people succumb agonizingly to a baffling virus which seems to dry up all the fluids in their bodies. The fate of humanity rests in the hands of Captain Charles “Biggs” Mosley of the NYPD, renowned epidemiologists Susan Fletcher and Daniel Paine, and ultimately the United States military. They must discover and eradicate the menacing promise of the maelstrom before it consumes the city, the country, and the world. Grappling with the same existential threats that still challenge us – climate change, global pandemics and racism – their frantic search takes us on a horrifying thrill ride from gritty 1990’s New York, to the Iraqi Desert, and all the way to planet Mars.
