A NovelBook - 2012
Dr. Gabriel Stanton, an expert on rare infections, is grappling with a patient whose every symptom confounds and terrifies him. Meanwhile, Chel Mano, a Guatemalan American researcher has unexpectedly become the possessor of an illegal artifact that has miraculously survived the centuries intact: a priceless codex from a lost city of her ancestors. This record seems to hold the answer to her life's work and to one of history's great riddles: why the Maya kingdoms vanished overnight. Suddenly, it seems that our own civilization might suffer this same fate.--B.I.P.
