There's a virulent virus afoot that calcifies its victims innards in a matter of moments. It seems to be emanating from random TV screens and PCs, but nobody knows how or why. Reaper (3 hours), affectingly read by Stephen Lang, is Ben Mezrich's lightening-paced contribution, complete with cutting-edge technology and cut-throat scientists, to the fictional annals of medical menace. As the entire nation is poised to welcome the biggest, most unified access to the information superhighway, two brilliant young doctors battle to stop the marauding virus from using that very highway to kill millions.
