Overview

When a deadly influenza virus threatens all of humankind, can a virologist who encounters many obstacles on his path to a cure be successful, and if so, at what price?

This is a love story . . . a deep love for another human being and a love for saving millions of lives from deadly viruses. Aidan has devoted his life to finding a vaccine for all flu viruses: past, present and future. Along the way he meets Jill, also a virologist, who shares his dedication. They are a good intellectual match and have the same motivator. They continue Aidan's work for an all-inclusive vaccine, but not without many hurdles.

The setting is Chicago that leads the way, as the current influenza reaches apocalyptic proportions. The city comes close to a total shutdown and thousands die. They make the radical decision to move to Tuscany, Italy, where the flu is not as rampant as it is in the States. It is a safer haven in which to continue their Clinical Trials, and they may save their own lives and others. Those destructive microorganisms, one-billionth our size, may have met their match.
