The Judas Strain
A judas strain is an organism that drives a species to extinction. From the Indian Ocean depths, an ancient menace plagues the modern world. Hope hides "within the language of angels." Aboard a cruise liner cum makeshift hospital, Dr Lisa Cummings and Monk Kokkalis, SIGMA agents, seek answers. But terrorists hijack the mercy ship for a floating bio-weapons lab.
4 July party a world away. SIGMA commander Gray Pierce thwarts an assassin who holds the first clue to a cure. He joins with her to follow the trail of Marco Polo. The quest winds through Venetian tombs, Byzantine cathedrals, and jungle-encrusted ruins. A relentless madman dogs every step. As seconds tick closer to doomsday, Pierce can trust no one. Any could be a Judas.
