9780975297629: Reign of the Rat

A farmer in Nepal notices a sudden rotting of his fingers, rapidly followed by pneumonia...  then a horrific death. As a virulent, drug-resistant form of leprosy spreads in a worldwide epidemic, a warring couple sets off on a danger-filled quest for a cure. Their only protection is the mysterious amulet of the Order of St. Lazarus. Their sole hope: to unearth the frozen remains of a medieval corpse destroyed by the Black Plague. Original.
