內容簡介

  突如其來的病毒肆虐,在印尼的一個難民拘留所,爆發嚴重的出血性熱病,四十七位病患不治身亡。亨利帕森(Henry Parson)是微生物與傳染科專家,身為世界衛生組織駐印尼的代表,他迅速地展開病源調查。很快的,他將發現病毒可能從狹小的難民營,擴及全球…

  一名受感染的男人,將前往一年一度的伊斯蘭聖地朝聖,前往麥加的旅程,有超過數百萬名伊斯蘭教徒,將深陷感染風險中。亨利與沙國王子合作,將進一步封鎖聖城。

  在美國國土安全局中,一名具有俄國背景的女官員眼看危機即將爆發,正想盡辦法動員政府,趕緊面對可能的生化戰爭威脅。

  各國關係日益惡化,聯外方式也接連中斷,恐慌隨之蔓延。而亨利的妻子與孩子們在亞特蘭大,也面臨病疫肆虐。突如其來的瘟疫,橫行美國本土。科技與宗教,與日益嚴重的人口死亡,毀滅性的災難一發不可收拾。

  普立茲獎得主勞倫斯‧萊特(Lawrence Wright)為我們創造醫療英雄帕森博士,找尋病源與解藥的漫長過程,險象環生。病毒有如世界上最狡猾、最凶險的敵人,故事讓人目不轉睛,讀來暢快淋漓。


(文∕博客來編譯)

  In this riveting medical thriller–from the Pulitzer Prize winner and best-selling author–Dr. Henry Parsons, an unlikely but appealing hero, races to find the origins and cure of a mysterious new killer virus as it brings the world to its knees.

  At an internment camp in Indonesia, forty-seven people are pronounced dead with acute hemorrhagic fever. When Henry Parsons–microbiologist, epidemiologist–travels there on behalf of the World Health Organization to investigate, what he finds will soon have staggering repercussions across the globe: an infected man is on his way to join the millions of worshippers in the annual Hajj to Mecca.

  Now, Henry joins forces with a Saudi prince and doctor in an attempt to quarantine the entire host of pilgrims in the holy city.

  A Russian émigré, a woman who has risen to deputy director of U.S. Homeland Security, scrambles to mount a response to what may be an act of biowarfare…

  Already-fraying global relations begin to snap, one by one, in the face of a pandemic…

  Henry’s wife, Jill, and their children face diminishing odds of survival in Atlanta…

  And the disease slashes across the United States, dismantling institutions–scientific, religious, governmental–and decimating the population. As packed with suspense as it is with the fascinating history of viral diseases, Lawrence Wright has given us a full-tilt, electrifying, one-of-a-kind thriller.
