My first encounter with John Scalzi.
This DRM free ebook acts as a prequel to Scalzi's Lock In published in August 2014.
This prequel acts as an oral history; a verbal historical documentation to the discovery and quarantine of the Haden's Syndrome named after the fictional first lady who contracts it.
a flu like illness that rampages the world from one end to the other. 15% of the world population succumb to it. There are three phases of the disease.

There is a solution . I won't spoil it. Read the book.

Short and enjoyable.
