What if you found out that you might be a walking biological weapon of mass destruction? Mitty Blake has discovered that he has handled 100-year-old scabs from variola major, also known as smallpox. At first he doesn’t think it is very important. He found them in some old book his mother was going to use for her interior decoration business. But as Mitty does more research he discovers that smallpox could have a devastating effect on the population-no one has been vaccinated in several decades and those scabs might have a shelf life. Time is running out.
