What does the future hold?
OK, here's the set-up. In the mid-21st century, Mexico is the world's superpower. Its wealthier citizens are linked to the central government with computer chips in their heads. As the country's dictator continues to grow in power, the poor masses are spellbound by Sister Domenica, who in her pirated radio broadcasts tells of impending doom. As people start dying in Mexico, the CDC sends Henry David Stark, the world's best virus hunter to try and stop the spread before it wipes out the entire world. You can follow Stark's story in The Patron Saint of Plagues by Barth Anderson.
