Towards the middle of the twenty-first century, the Covid-19 (‘Corona’) crisis of the early twenties, which killed millions, is forgotten. Yet the virus has changed Planet Earth irreversibly. It laid bare the naked fact that the world had become too dependent on traditional forms of nutrition, communication and transportation.
When the virus had finally been defeated, brilliant minds applied themselves to developing innovative techniques to elevate what remained of humanity to an entirely different technological platform where people are no more dependent on nature for food, or physical proximity for interpersonal communication.
The down-side: digital viruses now form a threat more deadly than the pest, tuberculosis, HIV, cancer and Covid-19 combined.
THE VIRUS OF GOD is a story of people of flesh and blood around 2045 on a gloomy globe ravaged by destructive forces that only mankind is able to unleash.
The overarching theme is a love story between a man and a woman whose professional and personal lives get intertwined beyond the point of no return.
The author has condensed experiences from a career of more than three decades at the senior echelons of major multinational companies in a phantasy world that is as real and entertaining as it is frightening.
