)-- What is born pregnant, hungry, and mean and are about to take over the island of Oahu?
The answer? THRIPZ. They're the stars of Robert Farley's new suspense thriller novel THRIPZ, now available from Amazon.com. With a retail price of only $6.99, the 234-page trade paperback novel is a perfect beach read when you need a little dose of icky-scary.
THRIPZ are genetically modified insect pests. Two competing farmers unwittingly help their bioterrorist creator unleash them on the island. A newspaper reporter with an extranormal sense for trouble plows into the agricultural disaster and soon finds his life and the lives of his friends on the line.
JA Konrath, noted author of the Jack Daniels thriller series, called the book "a techno-thriller with teeth." Susie Hawes, author of the Necromancer Duology, said, "...this suspense novel rises above the genre to tweak our environmental consciousness."
