FBI Agent Cavanaugh works in the slow paced field office for southern Maryland, where the "biggest federal crime is the condition of the roads."
But then a local nurse notices a sudden increase in the incidence of fatas strokes among other wise healthy black adults. The trail leads to a new strain of malaris that causes rapid blood clotting in people with sickle-cell trait, which frequently occurs in blacks and Indians.
Has a fringe hate group bioengineered a weapon to cecimate the black population? As the disease begins to spread and, within days, more peoople die, Cavanaugh must look for answers before it becomes an epidemic that threatens millions of lives...or even a rece war.

I read this book, I couldn't put it down. Nancy Kress did a great job of keeping me in suspense, and wanting to find out what was goin to happen next. A great book.

This was a very good book. Even though it was published over 10 years ago, it's still very timely and suspenseful, a really good medical thriller/science fiction read. (Don't worry, if you're not a fan of sci. fiction; it's not one of those way-out, fantastical, far-future SF books.)
