Goodreads: It Kills. . .On a hot summer night in Montauk, the bodies of two local bar patrons are discovered in the dunes, torn to shreds, their identities unrecognizable. . .
It Breeds. . .In another part of town, a woman’s backyard is invaded by four terrifying creatures that defy any kind of description. What’s clear is that they’re hostile–and they’re ravenous. . .
It Spreads. . .With every sunset the terror rises again, infecting residents with a virus no one can cure. The CDC can’t help them; FEMA can’t save them. But each savage attack brings Suffolk County Police Officer Gray Dalton one step closer to the shocking source of these unholy creations. Hidden on nearby Plum Island, a U.S. research facility has been running top-secret experiments. What they created was never meant to see the light of day. Now, a vacation paradise is going straight to hell.
Finally finished this little gem – I’m surprised it isn’t a movie. Yes, it is a familiar plot – the bad government makes these monsters with the idea that they’d be great soldiers but have no way to control them. Uh, yeah, it doesn’t do anyone any good to create monsters you can’t control – they tend to kill their makers.
But, I liked the characters enough to be angry when they were killed off by these deformed killing machines. It felt like the author enjoyed the killing spree.
The book is fast paced and full of action – I can say that there wasn’t a dull moment throughout and I don’t see how they could have cut it down from the 300+ pages without taking out some of the action. Just once I’d like to hear the government bad guy be sad and ashamed of the slaughter of innocent people but guess they have to be tough asses or they’d never give the order in the first place.
First book I’ve read of this author but imagine I will read more. I give the book an A.
