Summary of the Book
The United States government has received a warning saying that the sterilization procedures for the returning space probes may not necessarily guarantee decontamination. This means, that these unmanned spacecraft may still have particles that could prove dangerous to the planet. This incident took place two years ago. Now, Project Scoop has sent seventeen satellites into space to collect organisms and dust for study. One of the probes falls on earth and lands in an area in northeast Arizona. Soon after this incident, dead bodies have been discovered in heaps in a nearby town of Piedmont. Everybody around is horrified at the incident and there is an investigation as to what caused this scene. As the scientists come closer to the answer, they realize that the danger they are dealing with is much bigger than what they assumed.
