Global Chaos Unleashed by a Simple Microbe
The genetically engineered bacterium was just supposed to clean up oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico. But suddenly America’s infrastructure and economy disintegrates! Machines grind to a halt. Roads crumble. Technology clicks off. Pipes burst.
Before anyone can get a handle on the disaster, the scientist responsible is kidnapped, imprisoned, and interrogated on suspicion of conspiracy by Federal intelligence agents, and barely escapes alive–thanks to the disaster itself.
Can Dr. D. trust the virile Texan who finds her and tends her injuries? Can they fight their way across a volatile, changing landscape to reach the secure, off-grid prepper community and science haven, where they may find help in coping with the contagion? And will they even believe the story of how it started?
This fast-paced adventure story’s diverse characters view the cataclysm from a kaleidoscope of perspectives. Every person brings strengths to bear in surviving this massive environmental disaster.
Yet the accurate science underpinning the story puts it firmly in the hard science fiction world.
This debut novel by Peri Dwyer Worrell, the novel Machine Sickness builds and expands on such great science fiction thrillers as Michael Crichton’s Andromeda Strain, while packing a modern, post-apocalyptic, dystopian punch.
