A living plague, these monstrous bugs cannot be battled like some ordinary disease. Medical science is unable to prevent the deadly autoimmune reaction caused by the bite of these insects. Billions are dead and more are constantly dying. Governments are falling and civilization is collapsing. Into this land of the dead, comes Nigel, an investigative reporter, searching for a kidnapped African boy. Nigel, who seeks redemption in a world where there is no such thing as forgiveness.
