In Kenya, a deadly outbreak spreads quickly. Local villagers are infected, as are two American college students on summer break.

The CDC and WHO send a team, led by Dr. Peyton Shaw. In Africa, Peyton soon discovers that this outbreak is very different from any she's ever investigated. It appears to be part of a global experiment, one designed to unleash a new era of human existence.

As the virus spreads around the world, Peyton uncovers clues that lead to a dark secret in her past. With only hours left to stop the plague, she faces a choice that will change her life forever.

Can Peyton stop the outbreak in time? And what's the truth behind the virus? Is humanity being engineered for some purpose? Is this the end of life as we know it?

"I finished the book fast because I just couldn't wait..."
- GeekDad on DEPARTURE

"Riddle ( The Origin Mystery trilogy) makes an effort to keep the focus on how his characters react to each other (including to their future selves) rather than to the technological marvels that reshaped their world."
- Publisher's Weekly on DEPARTURE

"Well-constructed and tightly-wound as a fine Swiss watch- DEPARTURE has non-stop action, an engaging plot and, of course, wheels within wheels."
- Diana Gabaldon , bestselling author of Outlander on DEPARTURE
