Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A young NASA doctor must combat a lethal microbe that is multiplying in the deadliest of environments — space — in this acclaimed blockbuster of medical suspense from Tess Gerritsen, bestselling author of Harvest, Life Support, and Bloodstream.

Dr. Emma Watson has been training for the adventure of a lifetime: to study living beings in space. But her mission aboard the International Space Station turns into a nightmare beyond imagining when a culture of single-celled organisms begins to regenerate out of control — and infects the space station crew with agonizing and deadly results. Emma struggles to contain the outbreak while back on Earth her estranged husband, Jack McCallum, works frantically with NASA to bring her home. But there will be no rescue. The contagion now threatens Earth's population, and the astronauts are stranded in orbit, quarantined aboard the station — where they are dying one by one...

Review:

"Tess Gerritsen is an automatic must-read in my house." Stephen King

Review:

"Pulls readers in with fearful force." USA Today

Review:

"...combines the tension of ER and Apollo 13." New York Post

Review:

"Gerritsen creates believable characters and ably captures astronautical and scientific work in fashioning another fascinating story replete with cleverly intertwined subplots." Booklist

Synopsis:

Dr. Emma Watson is chosen to run a series of NASA experiments aboard the space station to monitor how Archaeons adapt to zero gravity. But the true origin of these single-cell organisms are kept secret from Watson and even NASA. Soon the world is threatened by a terrifying new disease.
