A search for the bodies of Black Death victims may unleash a new modern-day plague in this thriller by the international bestselling author . . .
John Motram, a cell biologist at Newcastle University, firmly believes that Black Death was not caused by bubonic plague but by an unknown virus. So he’s excited when Oxford University informs him that there might be preserved bodies of Black Death victims hidden under Dryburgh Abbey.
Motram launches an excavation, but it comes to a disastrous end when he appears to suffer a mental breakdown after entering the secret tomb. Now Dr. Steven Dunbar, ex-Special Forces medic, must step in to investigate, as fears grow that a new killer virus has been let loose . . .
