Deadly ExposureBook - 1998
When Los Angeles forensic pathologist Joanna Blalock is tapped to investigate a deadly new bacteria currently isolated on a Navy ship off the coast of Alaska, she is both excited by the challenge and apprehensive about the dangerous and claustrophobic working environment at sea. Joining a team of world-class scientists, she finds the atmosphere is fraught with competitive tension and hidden agendas. Working in a virtual "hot zone" is scary enough, but it gets worse when some members of the team become infected by the untreatable bacteria, and two very suspicious deaths lead Joanna to believe that there is a ruthless killer on board who may be responsible for the entire disaster. The horror of her discovery pales, however, when the entire ship is quarantined and Joanna is plunged into a desperate fight for survival--pitted against both man and microbe--with the fate of humanity hanging in the balance!
