The First Horseman Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The First Horseman

Frank Daly is a journalist who has happened on an interesting story. Some scientists went up to Norway to recover some bodies of some long dead miners. It was thought that since the bodies had been frozen that they might still contain a flu virus that could be studied and used to develop antedotes. Unfortunately the scientists get there too late, the bodies have already been taken. Who got them? Daly begins to suspect a group calling themselves The Temple of Light is behind it. But what is their agenda? And do they intend to develop the virus into some kind of bioweapon? His bosses think he's crazy and the FBI won't listen. So only Frank and scientist Annie can track down the cult before they do something devastating.
