The killer chose his first victims because of their ordinariness. A long–haul truck driver a short–order cook a Nebraska farm wife. His weapon is an Ebola–like filo virus, which spreads through casual contact. He can strike at anyone, anytime, anywhere and no one can predict who might be next until it's too late.

At Quantico, threats arrive – but in the form of riddles, clues, strange pieces to a puzzle. Maggie O'Dell and her partner Tully make the connection to the weaponised virus and join the killer's game on a scavenger hunt across the country, witnessing first hand the devastation caused by the virus.

And the horror is emerging with a scope Maggie only prays she'll live long enough to stop. How does the killer stay one step ahead of the FBI? How does he know their next move, anticipate their intention? As he toys with Maggie, a terrible picture of his grand ambition is revealed. Soon the domino effect of a deadly virus will drench the nation in innocent blood and senseless death.

As a profiler, Maggie knows that getting inside the mind of a killer always becomes personal. But never like this. Never this bas,

Because now Maggie has been exposed
