Frank Thro's wife is deathly ill with Nipah Virus. Formerly confined to animals, Nipah has infected two people in Shanghai's most prestigious hospital. Thro must find the cure and save his wife. Then he'll punish those responsible. The trail leads to a wealthy, mysterious businessman, Yang Rong, who runs the Fists of Righteous Harmony. He needs two more days before bioterrorism accomplishes his goal. Then all foreigners will be dead with Nipah. Thro has only one remaining option. He contacts Larry Fei of the CIA. With the minutes to worldwide bioterrorism counting down, Thro acts. Will he abort Yang's deadly attack, or will the free world perish in a Nipah Virus die-off?
