by William Cole
What happens when a top-secret government project designed to protect citizens from danger goes terribly awry?
BIO-TECH LABS is breeding deadly mites to be used against terrorists when a seemingly minor accident unleashes a terror upon New York City. Outbreak details the progression of these tiny killers as they, slowly at first and then faster and faster, jump from one host to another. The agony they cause to their victims is unbearable, and desperate people take desperate measures.
Public places, like a basketball game at Madison Square Garden, become breeding grounds for the vicious infestation, and pandemonium quickly ensues. Meanwhile, government officials bide their time, unwilling to expose themselves and the project.
William Cole’s carefully crafted thriller portrays the panic, horror, and despair of a city held hostage by the tiniest of enemies.
