Description

Oil Spills Aren’t All It Eats…

Microbiologist Deirdre Davis created the GMO bacterium to clean up oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico.

But something’s gone terribly wrong. America’s disintegrating in violence around her.

She thought she could trust her colleagues. But one of them somehow corrupted the bacteria’s DNA, and now it’s ravaging the planet with blinding speed.

Chaos reigns. No one knows what’s happening as the items and substances we depend on begin to malfunction and fall apart. Snatched by shady federal intelligence agents, she barely escapes with her life and sanity.

A handsome Texan aids her, but can she trust him? More important: can they make it alive to the secure science haven where she may find help in coping with the contagion? Can she defeat the terrors and tragedies of her past while they struggle to travel on roads that are melting beneath their feet?

And will they believe her when she gets there?

    Wow! What a book! Well researched and very cleverly written. It provoked all kinds of “WHAT? NO WAY!” responses in me. I’d seen media stories about plastic pollution and potential solutions_and stories of scientists who had discovered new plastic eating microbes and insects and I asked myself were they really accidental discoveries or had they been engineered in a lab; and if so, could they get out of control? What was to stop them spreading and what would happen if they did? Well, this book answered my questions_in spades and the answer was __total chaos. I’d never imagined the sheer reach such an accident could have or the devastation it would wreak but this book, showed the potential magnitude of such a catastrophe as well capturing the resilience of the human spirit and determination to not only survive but to once again, thrive. Crazy good book. Well done, Peri. I look forward to reading the sequel.
