"What if the pandemic you thought would kill you made you more intelligent instead? In the Amazon jungle, a disease is spreading. To those who survive, it grants enhanced communication, memory, and pattern recognition. But the miracle may be the sinister survival mechanism of a fungal organism, manipulating the infected into serving it. Paul Johns, a mycologist, is convinced the fungal host is the next stage of human evolution, while his brother Neil, an analyst at the NSA, is committed to its destruction. Is the human race the master in this symbiotic relationship, or are we becoming the pawns of a subtly dominating and utterly alien intelligence?"-- Provided by publisher.

I gave up after the prologue. I found the writing annoyingly unenlightened. I'm tired of stories where the brown people are villainous or at a minimum, shifty. And describing a native character as speaking 'broken' English is irritating. How about pointing out that, impressively, the character speaks more than one language! Anyway, I found this author's writing really obnoxious and gave up on the book.
