From the Inside Flap:

In the heart of the rain forest, something deadly is stirring Older than life itself, it feeds on the living, silently, mercilessly, with a speed and fatality matched only by the terror these paleovirus' gruesome symptoms provoke. Patrick Lynch's Carriers captures this fear, and presents a world where the war between mankind and nature makes any victory for science temporary at best. When a plague-like outbreak strikes Indonesia, and a team of American biological warfare experts are brought in to discover its source, they find only corpses and riddles without answers -- until Holly Becker arrives. She's come to the jungle to find her two young daughters, likely victims of the terrible plague, and in her quest may lie the secret to the terror which threatens to engulf them all.

Thrilling, engrossing, and as timely as today's headlines, Carriers is that rare novel that rivals the finest nonfiction in its research, accuracy, and credibility. Like Richard Preston's The Hot Zone, Carriers will horrify, but also compel us to think long and hard about altering the world around us.
