You cannot escape. No place is safe. Not even your home.
Turn on your television...boot up your computer...and meet Reaper, a brilliantly lethal man-made virus that travels the electronic highway, infecting its victims with the flick of a switch. Within seconds of exposure you turn chalk-white. You crash in pain. Then you die.
The terrorists behind this plague have the money, the power, and the access to every office and house in America. And no one is immune. It's up to a pair of medical sleuths, virologist Samantha Craig and paramedic Nick Barnes, to match wits and wizardry with this monstrous creation, its creator, and a high-powered cabal with a master plan to save the world-'even if it means annihilation.

Ben Mezrich was born and raised in Princeton, NJ, the son of an electrical engineer-turned-doctor and lawyer. After graduating magna cum laude from Harvard in 1991, with no clear idea what he wanted to do next, Mezrich took the LSATs and GREs, applied to law school and graduate school, and looked at about a dozen jobs, ranging from investment banking in New York City to broadcast television in Singapore.
In the midst of this whirlwind, Mezrich realized that his true passion was writing. He settled in a small apartment in Boston and went to work. To pay the rent, Mezrich worked as a television researcher, a communications specialist, a cartoonist and as a research assistant for lawyer Alan Dershowitz.
Mezrich devoted a great deal of time to researching his first book, Threshold, spending countless hours in biology labs and hospitals, interviewing geneticists, and pumping his Thursday-night poker group comprised of Harvard M.D. and Ph.D. candidates for information. His newest book, Reaper, is on sale now. He lives in Boston.
