Post 9-11, the CIA began developing "Chupacabra"—genetically engineered animals—to track and kill insurgents in Afghanistan. Now the program is complete... and in Russian hands. The first mission: eliminate an undercover agent before he can hand-off secret information. But now every person who came in contact with the body is dying, and the virus is spreading.
