One day like any other, Gerry Lane is in a traffic jam with his family. As a former UN investigator, Lane feels that the traffic jam is not one obşinuit; the sky is streaked with police helicopters and police on the streets is full of motorcycles.
Something makes crowds to attack with ferocity each other – a lethal virus that spreads from one bite, and healthy people transformed into a creature of unimaginable savagery. Neighbors turn against neighbors, a friendly stranger suddenly becomes a deadly enemy. The origins of the virus are unknown, and the number of infected grows exponentially every day, quickly becoming a global pandemic.
As the number of people infected herd quickly overwhelmed by the military and governments are increasingly powerless, Lane is forced to return to dangerous life he had led before withdrawing to trigger a global investigation seeking the source of the epidemic, and means which can be stopped its spread.
