Louie Cogburn had spent three days holed up in his
apartment, staring at his computer screen. His pounding
headache was unbearable... like spikes drilling into his
brain. And it was getting worse. Finally, when someone
knocked at his door, Louie picked up a baseball bat,
opened the door, and started swinging...
The first cop on the scene fired his stunner twice and
Louie died instantly. Detective Eve Dallas has taken over
the investigation, but there's nothing to explain the
man's sudden rage or death. The only clue is a bizarre
message left on his computer screen: Absolute Purity
And when a second man dies under nearly identical
circumstances, Dallas starts racking her brain for answers
and for courage to face the impossible... that this might
be a computer virus able to spread from machine to man...
