Overview

The devil is awake in paradise . . .

Biochemist Emma Caldridge comes to a remote tropical island in the Caribbean in search of minerals believed to reverse the aging process. What she finds instead are the bloody remnants of a bizarre religious ritual. And here, where the local people speak in whispers about sea monsters, ancient voodoo curses, and rampaging evil, she discovers something far more real . . . and more terrifying.

One by one, the island’s innocent inhabitants are descending into a paralyzing sleep of the dead—victims of a long-dormant, terrifying, and incurable pandemic that could once again wreak unimaginable havoc if it escapes from the island to spread like wildfire across the globe. Trapped by a global quarantine, Emma must break through the fear and superstition to get to the truth and stop the real evil, before she herself succumbs to the death sleep . . . along with millions of others.

Because the evil here has an all-too-human face . . . and the deadly ingredients of the apocalypse are suddenly for sale to the highest bidder.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Freveletti’s undistinguished fourth Emma Caldridge thriller (after 2011’s The Ninth Day) takes the biochemist from her Miami, Fla., lab, Pure Chemistry, to a Caribbean island not for vacation. After discovering a bloody voodoo offering and pin-transfixed doll left in her office, the scientist finds herself confronted by a sinister woman, accompanied by a machete-wielding zombie. When the woman demands that she leave the island, Emma refuses. After narrowly escaping a bloody death at the zombie’s hands, Emma begins searching for the motive behind this upsetting visit. Her investigation leads to the legend concerning an underwater cave supposedly guarded by a sea monster that imbues seaweed with its hue.What she learns proves to have implications much weightier than Emma’s routine cosmetics research, but the thrills are few and far between, and the melding of the supernatural and the real world doesn’t work. Agent: Barbara Poelle, the Irene Goodman Agency. (Nov.)

    Exciting

    An exciting read with enough twists in the plot to keep you guessing. Locations and characters were vividly drawn. Only regret was not further exploration and revelation as to the mystery of the blue hole.
