||"Space scientist Carin Gonzales and former submarine commander Jake Sabio are two strangers drifting separately through life when a mysterious explosion rocks them and brings them together. Now, the after-effects have changed both of them in unpredictable ways. Sometimes, they can see more clearly than before the explosion; while at other times they can smell more precisely and they move in ways that are clearly impossible. These and other changes come at a price. To make matters worse, anyone else who felt the effects of the explosion is now inexplicably dead. Time is running out for Gonzales and Sabio. An infection from the explosion is slowly killing them and the Center for Disease Control would like to lock them up in a lab for study. Due to a suspicious string of events, Special Agent Will Greenfield wants them for questioning. In addition, contract killer Antonio Crubari would be happy if they would just hurry up and die and he's willing to help speed up the process. How can they survive when everyone wants them dead and there appears to be no cure on Earth for their infection?"--p.  of cover.
