Summary
Louie Cogburn had spent three days holed up in his apartment, staring at his computer screen. His pounding headache was unbearable like spikes drilling into his brain, and it was getting worse. Finally, when someone knocked at his door, Louie picked up a baseball bat, opened the door, and started swinging. His neighbor called the police department. The first cop on the scene fired his stunner twice and Louie died instantly. Detective Eve Dallas has taken over the investigation, but there's nothing to explain the man's sudden rage or death. The only clue is a bizarre message left on his computer screen : Absolute Purity Achieved

Summary
Louie Cogburn spent three days holed up in his apartment, staring at the computer screen message: Absolute Purity Achieved. When someone knocks at his door, he picks up a baseball bat, and starts swinging, only to be killed by a cop's gun. Detective Eve Dallas takes over the investigation but there is no explanation for the man's sudden rage or death. When a second man dies under nearly identical circumstances, Dallas racks her brain for answers, including the possibility that this might be a computer virus able to spread from machine to man
