    This is a brilliant book, and it is said that Pekic describer Rahabdovirus better than anyone has ever done it before....

    The genetically engineered Rabies virus with a double protein envelope becomes extremely easy to transmit (biting is not necessary any more) and spreads from one victim to another extremely fast. The virus gets turned loose at the London's Heathrow Airport.

    Soon, the airport is closed and quarantined and the (thick long) novel tracks a number of characters stranded at the airport, from scientists trying to figure out what is happening, and physicians trying to help the victims, through airport personnel and passengers to a pet dog. Over the course of a thousand pages, everybody dies. That is, except for the dog who manages to find his way out...

    Unfortunately, the book has never been translated into English, but, the book can be read online. So, if you'd like to give it a shoot...

    These are the first four parts....

    And this is a link that leads to the rest of the book....
