Several mysterious happenings terrify an English family on the picturesque yet sinister Caribbean island of St. Barbe's. A huge four-legged creature stalks their little girl, Bobbie, in the grounds of the hotel which they operate. Next, Bobbie's older cousin, Jon, and his African-American girlfriend, Josie, discover a mutilated body in the island's reservoir, high in the rainforest. Josie's father, Judge Marvin Winchester, Anna Andersson, Director of a UN-affiliated information agency in Stockholm, and other characters, soon find themselves in combat with a ruthless, computer-controlled menace to world stability. The controllers use a manmade virus to kill heads of state before infiltrating their governments.
