Despite wars with Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as 9/11, the United States’ dependence on foreign oil has kept the nation tied to the Middle East. A scientist has developed a cure for America’s addiction—a slow-acting virus that feeds on petroleum, turning it solid. But he didn’t consider that his contagion of an Iraqi oil field would spread to infect the fuel supply of the entire world… In Los Angeles, screenwriter Dave Marshall heard this scenario from a retired U.S. Marine and government insider who acted as a consultant on Dave’s last film. It sounded as implausible as many of his scripts, but the reality is much more frightening than anything he can envision. An ordinary guy armed with extraordinary information, Dave hopes his survivor’s instinct will kick in so he can protect his wife and daughter from the coming apocalypse that will alter the future of Earth—and humanity…

Too many, too clever-by-half; man must be severely culled. Extreme change in a nasty microbe should do the trick. Keep just a few survivors, watch how they start to create another so-called civilization again. That was the plan... When a massive solar flare hits the Steppes of Mongolia, a mixing-bowl for devastating strains of the flu virus, Professor Jessica Patton, head of a virus research laboratory, struggles to control an outbreak of influenza. The consequences for mankind are dire, but as one of few survivors of the deadly disease, Jessica leads a small band of people out of catastrophe. Curiously, a mysterious Horseman with supernatural powers, calling himself 'Death', appears to be controlling the fate of specific individuals. Is the strange rider one of the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse holding the scales of fortune, and could this really happen?
