The Alien Plague
by A.T. Avon
WE THOUGHT EVOLUTION WAS CONFINED TO EARTH. WE WERE WRONG.
Historian Missy Levine has spent her life trying to complete her father’s thesis, “Disease X: The Alien Pathogen”. She’s endured the setbacks and sniggers, but now she’s out of time. The world stands on the brink of a pandemic, exposed to a virus which breaks all the rules.
As a new and terrifying alien pathogen spreads, America sends a clandestine team to China. But nothing about this “flu” is simple. It creates domes of immunity, then explodes outward like a shockwave. The dead remain contagious, while survivors are forever mutated.
The WHO is intent on finding Patient Zero and creating vaccines. But Missy is convinced salvation lies in a long-forgotten Japanese lab from World War II China – a lab she’s willing to risk her life to find.
