Publisher's Summary

"They spread, Mr. Cates.... Once a single microscopic unit enters the body, it begins replicating. Once there are enough units in the body, they begin...consuming."

Avery Cates is a very rich man. He's probably the richest criminal in New York City. But right now, Avery Cates is pissed. Because everyone around him has just started to die - in a particularly gruesome way. With every moment bringing the human race closer to extinction, Cates finds himself in the role of both executioner and savior of the entire world.

Critic Reviews

"A strong techno-thriller.... Somers's compelling writing separates this from similar works." (Publishers Weekly)

Favorite Series

I own all the paper back books, and have read through them several times.
I now listen through the audio books whenever I am in between books.

The narrator really brought the story to life.

great!

This novel was as good as the first, gripping and creepy. The narrator's voice is as perfect as he was for altered carbon.
