Jake Cooper is a 21st Century beach bum content to spend his days surfing the Internet and the postcard-perfect waves of the San Diego coastline. His twin brother Miles, junior partner in a prestigious east coast law firm, views his sibling's irresponsible lifestyle with jealous contempt. Estranged since adolescence by their differences, the brothers are reunited when tragedy strikes closer to home than either could ever have imagined. As a deadly biological agent ravages the United States, government agencies decimated by the bug struggle to identify the virus' origin. Working together far beyond the boundaries of conventional bureaucratic restraint, the Cooper brothers' sense of civic responsibility, fueled by personal loss, may very well represent America's only hope for salvation. A timely thriller packed with jaw-dropping plot twists, The Flu Season unveils the terrifying realities of a world locked in the throes of the next great pandemic.

Excerpt
Thursday, December 11th
South Carlsbad State Beach
Carlsbad, California

Two weeks later, Jake lay prone atop his surfboard, bobbing fifty yards from shore.
The waves were perfect that morning, just begging to be carved into trails of white foam from the azure ridges which humped provocatively against him. It was the last chance he would have to surf for some time, he acknowledged bitterly; not because the waves wouldn't be there tomorrow, but because his board and wetsuit were headed for a local pawn shop. Rent was due days ago, and Mr. Silvera, the snotty bastard who landlorded over his shabby one bedroom apartment like some feudal throwback had rejected Jake's promise that he'd have the money soon.
Everything in cash by 5 or you're outta here had been the edict.
Somehow, those words, barked through his telephone receiver hours earlier, were all he could hear at the moment, drowning out the exquisite symphony of crashing waves and squawking gulls Jake Cooper turned to for respite from the realities of his life.
