A sole terrorist survives the attack, which reveals the weapon's devastating effect for which there is no known cure. Ironically, it is the surviving terrorist who carries the genetic code for a possible treatment. A man McCord must find before he accomplishes the horror of his deadly mission.
In a race against time, McCord is aided by Dr. Kate Atwood, a researcher at the Army's top secret bio-weapon facility at Fort Detrick. McCord and Dr. Atwood are propelled on an intensive journey that takes them from Africa to Moscow, South America, London, Washington and finally, New York, where they discover the true nature of the weapon itself and the ultimate aim of the terrorist's mission. A holocaust that will destroy millions.
