Synopsis

CDC Scientist Gunn Shoreham struggles to find the source of an Ebola outbreak in the Mideast, as the countries accuse each other of bio-terrorism. He must redouble his effort when one member of his team shows symptoms of the gruesome hemorrhagic disease. He returns to his lab in Atlanta and discovers that his son-in-law, who had been in Baghdad, has come down with the disease.

As Gunn’s world collapses around him, he determines that the most likely source for the disease is an American. His evidence is so tenuous and circumstantial, he realizes stopping the disease and catching the perpetrator is entirely up to him.

About the author

BJ Creighton

Mx. Creighton has been writing and telling stories for years, but these are the first satisfactory novel-length works. BJ has plans to revisit a science fiction trilogy to see if its novels can be raised to publication quality. BJ does extensive traveling and tries to remain current on scientific developments. The setting for No Sanctuary came from volunteering at Rowe Sanctuary in south-central Nebraska. Rowe sees about half a million sandhill cranes each spring, a spectacle that prompts a migrations of birders and bird watchers to the Kearney-Grand Island area. The ideas that led to Ebolavirus came from the secrecy surrounding various bio-terrorism efforts. Many people have contributed to the many BT projects, but they and their research results are largely unknown. This work is so extensive that security classifications have been lost, researchers have come and gone and so on. It is well known that both Soviet and American governments worked on weaponizing Ebola, hence this novel.
