Now facing a one-two punch of alien retaliation from orbit, and a rapidly evolving nano-weapon that intends to transform the Earth into something more to its liking, humanity's last hope of survival resides with a pair of cybernetically-enhanced human collaborators who are more interested in looting than saving the world. Any way you look at it, humanity is doomed.”

A MAN-MADE PLAGUE: No disease is more deadly or more enigmatic than the genetically engineered virus known as “Saint Vitus.” Seconds after infecting its victim, the neurotoxin causes massive hemorrhaging, madness, convulsions and inevitably ... death. Experiments show the airborne virus is four hundred times more lethal as conventional neurotoxins – with characteristics that make it ideal for covert biological warfare.
A MADMAN’S PLOT: Since its unauthorized “birth,” the abomination has been the U.S. Army’s best-kept secret – until its theft. Now in the hands of Osama bin Laden’s most dangerous terrorist known only as “Gorgon,” Saint Vitus becomes a terrible weapon with truly unimaginable potential for destruction. When Gorgon targets the U.S. Eastern Seaboard, a desperate president orders all military resources directed at the virus’ destruction – even if that means unleashing a thermonuclear hell.
