When her discovery makes headlines around the world, Dr. Yoonie Brandt becomes an instant celebrity. But her study is soon attacked and ferociously discredited. The headlines vanish overnight. So, too, does the young geneticist. Three years later, wealthy businessman Joe Kettleman is on the run from a wife who wants him dead, detectives who want him for a double homicide, and a tumor that wants him for an early grave. Badly wounded and out of options, he slips away to a remote cabin in New Mexico. When supplies dwindle, Joe is forced to take a perilous journey through the deserts of the Bisti Badlands. Two days into what was supposed to be a five day trek, he comes across a town. A small city, really. Right in the middle of nowhere. And it's not on any map. That's when Joe's fate collides with that of a beautiful young woman, desperate to escape the strange city and making wild claims about a genetically-enhanced pandemic that will soon wipe out most of humanity. She's delusional. Right? But within the city, Joe uncovers a mind-blowing secret. A secret protected and controlled by a global conspiracy... with a terrifying plan to change the world.
