CIA agent Will Reisner and his team head to the South China Sea on a mission – find a lost ship loaded with bio-weapons. But as they search, a terrible virus plagues the local population, leaving them worm-ridden and insane. Worse, the sick refuse to be contained and spread the disease by infecting the healthy.
The Thief and the Waste
Girls are being snatched from the Barrow. Who has been buying them and why is unclear, but one thing is certain: they are being taken south of the wall into Seira, the military state that Samarra escaped a year ago. The military state that wants her dead. After a tumultuous night that leaves one of their own murdered, Samarra and her friends manage to thwart this year’s shipment. With the trafficker’s cart in their possession, they have an opportunity—trick their way into Seira by masquerading as the kidnapped girls and their guards. It’s a grandiose plan born out of grief and guilt and rage. A doomed mission, they all know, though the enemy they are moving toward is far more powerful than any of them could have imagined.
