A series of gruesome attacks have been sweeping New York City - three men are found dead, their bodies nearly dissolved from the inside out. The culprit is a super-colony of ants: An army of one trillion soldiers with razor sharp claws and stinging venom. The desperate mayor turns to the greatest ant expert in the world, Paul O'Keefe, a Pulitzer Prize-winning scientist in an Armani suit. Paul is baffled by the insects and recruits the one person who can help, his ex-wife Kendra Hart. When the ants launch an all-out attack, Paul and Kendra hit the dangerous, panic-stricken streets of New York, searching for a coveted queen. It's a race to unlock the secrets of this terrible new species, before the President nukes Manhattan. A thriller with the highest stakes and the most fascinating science, this debut is not to be more
