Chicago: A biological weapon is set off in the subway and quickly spreads through the city's West Side. Michael Kelly, PI, goes into the subway with a team trained in microbial forensics (essentially the next generation of CSI) and gets a hard lesson in biological warfare.
Meanwhile, the pathogen spreads. The government is forced to quarantine sections of the city. Fences go up, and soldiers in bio-hazard suits take to the streets. Gangs take over day-to-day law and order in the sectioned off hot zones and society generally begins to unravel. Kelly, of course, is in the middle of it, tracking down the bad guys while his city teeters on the precipice.
