The Virus (Paperback)
A smallpox epidemic begins in a whisper with a single death, and then the name of the victim surfaces: Abdulaziz al-Sherhi. In a nation rich in imagination, this name requires none at all. In the weeks that follow, the epidemic fears crescendo into a national roar. People panic about dying from this horrific terrorist incited disease and clamor for a vaccination. The federal government lurches along, hurriedly creating more vaccines to meet the demand. Maggie Rider, a weary road warrior for a high tech company, submits to the shot only to realize this is no ordinary immunization. Her husband, Eddy, posts his suspicions about this deeply sinister government requirement to his web site. Now he's a target. And Maggie is the bait. The technology is real. Washington is corrupt. It's only a matter of time before this isn't just an intriguing idea for a political thriller.
About the Author
Janelle Diller worked for many years as a communication consultant for a high tech company. This role gave her ample opportunity to find interesting ways to say boring things. Having survived the chaos of the high-tech world for nearly a decade without getting laid off once, she knows firsthand the grinding exhaustion of the road-warrior's life. Eventually, she was able to liberate herself. Technology implementations went on without her. Currently, she and her husband divide their time between living the good life in Colorado during the summer and sailing the Mexican coast in the winter. In addition, she writes early chapter book mysteries for the award winning Pack-n-Go Girls Adventure series. They're a ton of fun. She's grateful she no longer has to write about technology implementations. Janelle loves to connect with her readers. Visit her website at www.janellediller.com for more information about her work.
