Synopsis

FIRST, THE STRANGE CREATURES FROM THE RIVER. THEN THE HORDES OF KILLER MOSQUITOES. THEN THE RAGING PLAGUE. AMIDST THE RAVAGES OF DEATH AND PESTILENCE, ONE DOCTOR TURNS TO AN ANCIENT CURE.

In a warming world, the stage is set for malevolent storms, deadly diseases, and human conflict. As the death toll rises and vital resources thin out, bigotry rears its ugly horns and racial tension ignites. When life-saving drugs run out and hospital morgues turn into mass graves, Dr. Jamal Jackson hatches a contentious plan: unleash a beast to kill another beast--extinguish the plague with a genetic anomaly that he, ironically, had long since vowed to purge from the face of the earth. Then it occurs to him. The very race that history had once condemned could very well be the most resilient of all--and the very gene that he had so reviled could be the very cure that could save all.
