W. David Jones
The deadly HET virus is decimating the world's population. One small island in the Pacific Northwest has escaped the virus and has been placed in reverse quarantine by the CDC. The island's pastor, Andy Morrison, has been heavily exposed to HET yet somehow escapes the infection. A research physician discovers that his blood will cure the virus. Suddenly Pastor Andy and his blood are the most valuable commodities in the world. Then Andy is abducted and held while his blood is harvested and sold for millions of dollars.
Governments, international corporations, organized crime and research facilities all vie for a piece of Andy. Military operations, law enforcement, advanced electronic technology and medical procedures provide thrilling action as a research team races to find the lifesaving factor in his blood, save Pastor Andy, and perhaps save the world.
Is this pastor the new messiah, sent by God to save the world? The gospel message is proclaimed throughout the book, reminiscent of Paul's prison ministry.
