Publisher's Summary

"Think Thomas Harris, Will Graham and Clarice Starling rolled into one and pitched on the knife's edge of a scenario that makes Jurassic Park look like a carnival ride. Another rip-roaring, deeply paranoid thriller about the reasons to fear the future." (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)
Hannah Stander is a consultant for the FBI - a futurist who helps the agency with cases that feature demonstrations of bleeding-edge technology. It's her job to help them identify unforeseen threats: hackers, AIs, genetic modification, anything that in the wrong hands could harm the homeland.
Hannah is in an airport, waiting to board a flight home to see her family, when she receives a call from Agent Hollis Copper. "I've got a cabin full of over a thousand dead bodies," he tells her. Whether those bodies are all human, he doesn't say.
What Hannah finds is a horrifying murder that points to the impossible - someone weaponizing the natural world in a most unnatural way. Discovering who - and why - will take her on a terrifying chase from the Arizona deserts to the secret island laboratory of a billionaire inventor/philanthropist. Hannah knows there are a million ways the world can end, but she just might be facing one she could never have predicted - a new threat both ancient and cutting-edge that could wipe humanity off the earth.

Don't let these bugs bite

Chuck Wendig has struck entomological gold here. Lock in and listen to this excellent scifi thriller that will make you want to pay more attention to those little critters around you. Wendig has a unique writing style in that the story is first person perspective written in third person language. Xe Sands does an excellent job reading the story and I'm now going to look for more by her thanks to discovering her voice and style with this book. I'll admit I have a large biased for stories with genetics and you throw in insects and you've got me hooked. BUT if you get too much science wrong I'll not enjoy the story. So when I say this was fun from beginning to end, know that the science presented is researched enough to make it plausible and enjoyable. As for the story, well Wendig is really good at drawing you in and taking you on a ride. I won't give away anything, because I think it's best to jump in a discover it on your own. I will say if you have read Zer0es you'll enjoy the cameos, but this book can stand all on its own for anyone who hasn't read anything by the author before.

So yes, well worth the credit and time! Enjoy!!!
