Pestilence by Gary Towner

This was amazing. A story about small town USA being used as an experiment in genetically altered seed. This mixed with toxic waste left over from WW2 creates swarms of mutant locusts and grasshoppers. The army are called in to nullify the threat but they are under orders to nullify more than the threat.

I could see this a major motion picture with perhaps Christopher Walken in the lead, it's just that good. It was quite long and took a while to build up....mostly in flashbacks but the pay off was worth it. When the action got going it was non stop. I found it extremely hard to put the book down.

I was gripped totally and I think anyone else that has an interest in this genre will like it too. Think 50's 'b' movie type thing. It was great!

I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.
