Un ex agente delle Forze Speciali americane esce dalla giungla amazzonica e muore quasi istantaneamente a causa di un tumore pervasivo. Il fatto singolare è che quell'uomo, quattro anni prima, era entrato nella giungla come membro di una spedizione incaricata di compiere ricerche in campo biofarmaceutico e aveva un unico braccio, mentre, al momento della morte, ne ha due. Un gruppo di scienziati e di militari americani viene dunque inviato in Amazzonia per cercare di capire cosa sia successo ai compagni di quell'uomo e al suo braccio "ricresciuto", ma non prima di aver obbedito alla richiesta di rimandare il cadavere negli Stati Uniti, ignorando che esso è portatore di una malattia che potrebbe sterminare la popolazione americana.

[4 Stars] I thoroughly enjoyed this novel! The science involved was absolutely fantastic, and I loved every second of it.
