Has the end of the world gone viral?
When a young woman collapses on the NYC subway and dies, her case reminds medical examiner Jack Stapleton of the 1918 flu pandemic. Jack autopsies the woman and finds striking anomalies: She has had a heart transplant; and, against all odds, her DNA matches that of the transplanted heart.
When two more victims suffer a similar rapid death, Jack races the clock to identify the woman and determine what virus could wreak such havoc. His investigation leads him to CRISPR/CAS9, a gene-editing biotechnology that’s captured the attention of the medical community’s most unethical members. In the underbelly of the organ transplant market, Jack faces a megalomaniacal businessman willing to risk lives to conquer a lucrative new medical frontier.
