about

“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.

Chuck Wendig is a novelist, screenwriter and video game developer. He is the author of the Double Dead, The Heartland, Miriam Black, Atlanta Burns, and most recently The New York Times best-selling Star Wars: The Aftermath Trilogy series as well as several stand-alone novels.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I was expecting. I bought this book thinking I was going to get a great creepy crawly story that would send shivers down my spine. Some parts indeed made my skin crawl, but this story could have been much better. The first 100 pages or so dragged on, then it got better, only to drag on again near the end. Although I finished the book fairly quickly, it definitely won't be a book I read again. I'm glad I only paid $10 for it at a drugstore.

Editorial Reviews

“[A] rich, darkly funny page-turner with details designed to make those little hairs on the back of your neck stand up with how plausible [it seems].”
