Deep in the jungle of Peru, a black, skittering mass devours an American tourist party whole. FBI agent Mike Rich investigates a fatal plane crash in Minneapolis and makes a gruesome discovery. Unusual seismic patterns register in a Indian earthquake lab, confounding the scientists there. The Chinese government "accidentally" drops a nuclear bomb in an isolated region of its own country. And all of these events are connected.

As panic begins to sweep the globe, a mysterious package from South America arrives at Melanie Guyer's Washington laboratory. The unusual egg inside begins to crack. Something is spreading...
The world is on the brink of an apocalyptic disaster. An virulent ancient species, long dormant, is now very much awake. But this is only the beginning of our end...

Review quote

A sprawling and shamelessly compulsive adventure, this is a pleasingly fast-paced read that manages to combine smoothly crafted prose and sharp details with a selection of entertainingly gruesome shocks. * SFX * A rattlingly entertaining read * STARBURST * Arachnophobes, move on. This is not for the likes of you. * THE FINANCIAL TIMES * Reads like a blockbuster movie * SciFiNow * The inclusion of events and voices from around the world add to the growing suspense and excitement and, if you aren't scared of spiders, the idea of a carnivorous swarm of eight-legged homicidal maniacs, is enough to keep you turning the pages. * The Book Beard Blog * This is destined for the bestseller lists * LOVE READING * A high-octane thriller it is great fun and a real page-turner. * DAILY EXPRESS * a thoroughly entertaining, deliciously skin-crawling horror thriller that you'll like it with or without the spiders falling on your lap as you read it * For Winter's Nights * Brace yourself for sleepless nights * SFX * It is skilfully written and entirely gripping - I think it is likely to be a best seller, and I would recommend you give it a go... * Nudge Books * The Hatching marks the debut of an exciting new talent in horror. * GINGER NUTS OF HORROR *
