Описание: When Dr. Liam Connor is found dead at the bottom of one of Ithaca, New York's gorges, his research collaborator, Cornell professor of nanoscience Jake Sterling, refuses to believe it was suicide. Why would one of the world's most eminent biologists, an eighty-five-year-old man in good health who survived some of the darkest days of the Second World War, have chosen to throw himself off a bridge? Soon Jake and Connor's grieving granddaughter, Maggie, are led by cryptic messages the dead man left behind to a devastating secret gleaned off the shores of war-ravaged Japan and carried for more than sixty years. What begins as a quest for answers soon leads to a horrifying series of revelations at the crossroads of biological warfare and nanoscience. As government operators, international tycoons, and dueling conspiracies swirl around them, Jake and Maggie, and Maggie's nine-year-old son, Dylan, must race against time to prevent a doomsday scenario beyond anything they, or the world, could have imagined...
