Jake Greene, an epidemiologist at the CDC and Rowena Ross, a young biologist, are thrown together as an unorthodox team to uncover the cause of the epidemic and devise a means to control it. Another scientist claims to have found a vaccine but refuses to release the formula, even as citizens everywhere lose all sense of law and order. Greed, the ethics of biology-as-business, and the vulnerability of the human condition converge to threaten the race against extinction, forcing Jake and Rowena to undertake an ultrasecret, unthinkable experiment. If the experiment succeeds, the very definition of human life will change- if it fails, the last generation of human beings walks the Earth.
