A deadly virus first shows up at a Baltimore hospital and later is traced to several group homes for the mentally handicapped... Then the tendrils begin to spread and the CDC and police realize they may be facing the first of a bioterrorist attack - or are they?
This is a bizarre tale of infectious disease and what happens when it hits a group home for the mentally handicapped. It chronicles the doings of CDC Dr. McCormick during his investigation into the unrecognizable outbreak. It's a little over the top since I really didn't expect a CDC officer to be breaking and entering, carrying a gun or evading the police. I did enjoy the encounters with both of his ex-girlfriends and if you discount the outlandish heroics, the story itself was a good one.
