Don Oberbier investigated anomalies, but he had never encountered one as powerful as the Black Death of Babylon. No pestilence had ever been so fatal, or so hideous. Blood was its tool and its seal-black patches that appeared to eat its victim from the inside out. And the disease attacked with a viciousness that decomposed its victim within two hours. When a Professor at prestigious Babylon University snaps and starts killing people with the disease, Don has the campus quarantined. He learns that the universities alumni directory contains a list of those to be murdered, and the investigation picks up speed as Don tries to catch the killer before everyone on the list is infected.
