Army epidemiologist Frank Slater's offered a job no one else wants: to travel to a small island off the coast of Alaska and investigate a potentially lethal phenomenon. The permafrost has begun to melt, exposing bodies from a colony that was wiped out by the dreaded Spanish flu of 1918 and was once devoted to the mad Russian monk Rasputin. Frank must determine if the thawed remains still carry the deadly virus in their frozen flesh and, if so, ensure that it doesn't come back to life.

Excellent joining of historical fact and fiction. The author combines both in a manner that draws the reader into the story. Difficult to put the book down once started.

One of the most entertaining books I have read in a long time. Realistic plot, interesting characters and the interweaving of historical events made this a brilliantly written book.

I found this book very enjoyable. The author used a mix of historical fiction with pandemic suspense to create a good read.

And one thing I do know is that God doesn't knock twice.
