A few weeks before 12/21/12 an unknown Maya codex shows illegally up in the Getty Museum. It might explain the collapse of the great Maya empire. At the same time, an incurable disease starts killing people by the hundreds. Soon L.A. Is under strict quarantine, revolts and looting start, and the discussions between the doomsayers and the non believers flare up. Gabe Stenton, a medical expert in prion diseases (like mad cow), and Chel Manu, a famous Guatemalan researcher in Maya scriptures, have to find a way to find a cure ... 12/21/12 might indeed be the last day of human civilization.
Intelligent medical thriller mixed with a nice amount of action and Maya mystics. Good read.
