Enter a world where not only people, but also your genetic makeup might kill you. Debut author Adams expertly paints an increasingly fractured future where the population is slowly being decimated by a plague—also known as "White Horse." Once a janitor at a major pharmaceutical company, 30-year-old American Zoe Marshall travels across Europe, trying to make it to Greece and, hopefully, reunite with her lost love, Dr. Nick Rose. The as yet unexplained appearance of a strange jar in her apartment, however, keeps her paranoid and tethered to her past; the contents of the jar, she fears, may have ignited the current global meltdown. Despite being a determined loner, Zoe takes blind teenager Lisa under her wing, and this last vestige of compassion and companionship could be her undoing, as "the whole world is dangerous now. And there are monsters out there that used to be us." A gripping, unsettling read.
