Genesis of a Plague Right now, in a remote corner of rural China, a farmer and his family are sharing their water supply with their livestock: chickens, ducks, pigs, sheep. They share the same waste-disposal system, too. Bird viruses meet their human counterparts in the bloodstreams of the swine, where they mix and mutate before spreading back into the human population. And a new flu is born.... Dr. Noah Haldane, of the World Health Organization, knows that humanity is overdue for a new killer flu, like the great influenza pandemic of 1919 that killed more than twenty million people in less than four months. So when a mysterious new strain of flu is reported in the Gansu Province of mainland China, WHO immediately sends a team to investigate. Haldane and his colleagues soon discover that the new disease, dubbed Acute Respiratory Collapse Syndrome, is far more deadly than SARS, killing one in four victims, regardless of their age or health. But even as WHO struggles to contain the outbreak, ARCS is already spreading to Hong Kong, London, and even America. In an age when every single person in the world is connected by three commercial flights or fewer, a killer bug can travel much faster than the flu of 1919. Especially when someone is spreading the virus on purpose... At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Das Grauen kommt aus den Tiefen des Alls. Die außerirdische Sonde ist zerstört worden. Doch bevor sie in Flammen aufging, hat sie ihre letzte Waffe entfesselt: eine winzige Dose, gefüllt mit Sporen, die unsere Erde endgültig vernichten sollen. Jahrhundertelang ruhte der Behälter am Grund des Lake Michigan ... bis heute. Nur wenige Tage nach dem Ausbruch der außerirdischen Seuche stehen bereits ganze Kontinente vor der Auslöschung. Das Schicksal unseres Planeten ruht auf den Schultern einer kleinen Gruppe von Wissenschaftlern. Gelingt es ihnen, ein Heilmittel zu finden, bevor die Verwandelten die totale Vernichtung herbeiführen? Pures Adrenalin! Ein absoluter Lesegenuss! James S. A. Corey: »Horror, der einen körperlich fertigmacht. Pandemic liest sich wie ein literarisches Baby von Michael Crichton und David Cronenberg.« Ramez Naam (NEXUS): »Rasant, faszinierend, beängstigend und fesselnd.« Lincoln Child: »Sigler packt den Leser an der Gurgel und lässt nicht mehr los.«

This book debunks the myths about the complicity of the West in inventing HIV/AIDS. Bonggmba refocuses our attention on the grim and irrefutable data about the toll that many of the unwise and corrupt policies of African governments have taken on the lives of their politically weak and disenfrancised citizens. He also calls upon the African church to look into the face of suffering and come to grips with its ethical mission.

Scott Sigler’s Infected shocked readers with a visceral, up-close account of physical metamorphosis and one man’s desperate fight for sanity and survival, as “Scary” Perry Dawsey suffered the impact of an alien pathogen’s early attempts at mass extinction. In the sequel Contagious, Sigler pulled back the camera and let the reader experience the frantic national response to this growing cataclysm. And now in Pandemic, the entire human race balances on the razor’s edge of annihilation, beset by an enemy that turns our own bodies against us, that changes normal people into psychopaths or transforms them into nightmares. To some, Doctor Margaret Montoya is a hero—a brilliant scientist who saved the human race from an alien intelligence determined to exterminate all of humanity. To others, she’s a monster—a mass murderer single-handedly responsible for the worst atrocity ever to take place on American soil. All Margaret knows is that she’s broken. The blood of a million deaths is on her hands. Guilt and nightmares have turned her into a shut-in, too mired in self-hatred even to salvage her marriage, let alone be the warrior she once was. But she is about to be called into action again. Because before the murderous intelligence was destroyed, it launched one last payload — a soda can–sized container filled with deadly microorganisms that make humans feed upon their own kind. That harmless-looking container has languished a thousand feet below the surface of Lake Michigan, undisturbed and impotent . . . until now. Part Cthulhu epic, part zombie apocalypse and part blockbuster alien-invasion tale, Pandemic completes the Infected trilogy and sets a new high-water mark in the world of horror fiction.

Pandemic is an explosive medical thriller from New York Times-bestselling author Robin Cook. In New York City, an unidentified, healthy, well-dressed woman is struck down by a sudden respiratory illness on the subway as opportunist thieves snatch her phone and backpack. By the time she’s rushed to hospital, she’s dead. Ending up on forensic pathologist Dr. Jack Stapleton’s autopsy table as the potential victim of a contagion, reveals surprising findings. Fearing what could be the first in a severe outbreak of a deadly virus similar to the 1918 influenza pandemic, Jack works in overdrive for a diagnosis and to identify the woman. As the inconclusive tests come back, Jack urges his wife, and chief medical examiner, Dr. Laurie Montgomery to sound the alarm at the mayor’s office, concerned that more cases may follow. Lacking conclusive proof, Laurie refuses, fearing it would trigger widespread panic. When further cases do occur around the city, and then further afield in Los Angeles, London and Rome, Jack finds his own life in jeopardy as he enters a race against time to discover the link that connects all the victims before it’s too late . . .

The trafficking, abuse, and addiction to illicit drugs have reached pandemic proportions, destroying many inner-city neighborhoods. Law-abiding citizens have locked themselves behind steel doors and barred windows. Open-air illicit drug markets are fueling the growth of violent street gangs and murders. National law enforcement agencies make thousands of illicit drug-related arrests daily. Countless narcotics, cocaine, and alcoholics anonymous self-help meetings are held every day. However, the actions of these groups have done little to eliminate or curtail the trafficking and abuse of illicit drugs. The term war on drugs announced a campaign by the United States government to stop the flow of drugs into the country. In the first eight months of this year, the federal and state governments have spent $32 billion unsuccessfully fighting that war. 1 The forces that drive this pandemic are evil; they are demonic in nature. Therefore, this spiritual war can only be won with spiritual weapons!
