In the wake of a pandemic virus that rapidly spreads throughout the world killing millions of people, Dennis and Andi Jensen flee the ensuing panic and escape to the mountains while scientist Cara Porter makes a potentially fatal mistake in her laboratory.

McMillan Palgrave

This science-based thriller from Wil Mara will chill you to your core

The unknown virus kills in four days. By the time the first bodies are found, it's too late. Thousands are already sick. Already dying.

Supermarket shelves go bare, police roadblocks are set up, and people disappear—some fleeing the illness, others quietly suffering behind locked doors. Dennis Jensen fears that his family will be next. They break quarantine to seek safety in an isolated cabin high in the hills.

Dr. Michael Beck of the Centers for Disease Control is one of the world's premier epidemiologists. This new virus is right up his alley. But it's moving so fast . . . . Other countries are trying desperately to keep the infection out, even threatening to blow American passenger planes out of the sky.

Together with Cara Porter, his goth-punk assistant, Beck drives into the heart of the seething "hot zone," searching for answers. Is the disease natural or man-made? Is it something that escaped from a research lab or is it a deliberate terrorist attack?

Dennis Jensen's world is about to collapse. Because his wife is about to turn to him and say, "Honey, I don't feel well . . . ."

"Irwin Allen's disaster films meet Stephen King's The Stand. A scary notion."—Booklist

"A chilling and horrific outbreak story. If you're a fan of Outbreak, The Hot Zone, and Contagion (the movie), you'll love Gemini Virus."—No More Grumpy Bookseller

Decent. Not exceptionally bad, but not too good either. The characters don't really strike the reader emotionally...
