By 2112, the Closure Virus has already wiped out about one-third of the world's population, but it mutatesagain to infect not only people and living creatures--but inorganic matter as well. Dubbed the "Disclosure Virus," this new threat overruns several major cities, creating huge crystalline shapes with the matter it absorbs. With the world's economy also crumbling, the additional pressures send dominant political forces into desperate tailspins. Nomad sends agents to find Marihan, a minority leader who now holds important information about a terrorist network. Knife-wielding, fan-favorite Kenji is searching for her, too, feeling personally responsible for her safety--and running headlong into danger. In Peru, Elijah is now several years older, and he gets involved in yet another Propater fiasco. With his sister still captured, Propater gives him one more reason to seek bloody vengeance when an old friend is murdered.
