Professor Colin Ayres has spent years researching the strange story of
Galina, Arizona, a sleepy border town ripped apart by violence and
paranoia after the outbreak of a mysterious illness in 1960. Colin is
certain the Galina Incident was simply a case of mass hysteria. But when
his partner, Alonzo, starts exhibiting strange symptoms, Colin is
shocked to realize they are the same as those that emerged in Galina
decades ago.As Alonzo’s condition worsens, Colin scrambles to piece
together what really happened during that terrible summer in the past.
He uncovers a story of murder, corruption, and fanaticism. The deeper he
digs, the more he becomes convinced that what happened in Galina wasn’t
mass hysteria after all.When others start to develop the same eerie
symptoms, Colin must confront the possibility that someone—or
something—is driving the plague. Guided by rumors of a person who found a
way to stop the plague in the sixties, Colin races to find answers
before the disease destroys Alonzo and everyone else it touches.
