But the meteors have brought something else to Earth as well.In the small West Texas town of Monahans, something is happening to people, causing them to behave like wild, murderous animals, killing with a relentless blood lust. They are aware of what they are doing, and are helpless to stop it. And its spreading. It seems no coincidence that this behavior is occurring during the meteor storm.Then, on Christmas morning, Monahans is suddenly swarming with helicopters and soldiers in environmental suits. Martial law is declared, and two young physicians, both virologists, are caught up in a labyrinth of secrecy, desperation, and fear in their efforts to find out what is happening.
