Contents / Notes

Summary, etc.: America is at the mercy of a puzzling pathogen. That ordinarily wouldn't lead to catastrophe, thanks to modern medicine, but the government supply of Dormigen, the silver bullet of pharmaceuticals, has been depleted just as demand begins to spike. Among those struggling to quell the crisis are a savvy but preoccupied president; a Speaker more interested in jockeying for a potential presidential bid; and our narrator, a low-level scientist with the National Institutes of Health who happens to be the world's leading expert in lurking viruses. Little goes according to plan during the three weeks necessary to replenish the Dormigen, and nations with their own supply soon offer aid-- but for a price. -- adapted from jacket
