Winner of the 2015 National Indie Excellence Award in the Medical Thriller genre. This techno thriller, hard scifi novel, begins in the Arctic where an oil company is drilling and unwittingly discovers a megavirus which had been frozen in the permafrost for 30,000 years. It is a thousand times larger than any viruses known before and is a human pathogen. Now investigators in Houston must race against the ticking clock of the short Arctic summer to discover a way to protect workers from the virus before competitors drain the basin of its rich resources… and before anyone else dies from the hemorrhagic fever that the Laptev virus causes.
