ABOUT LAWRENCE MILLER
It began for me when I picked up a Jules Verne novel at age fourteen. I was hooked. Books transported me to new places and gave me new experiences. I took creative writing classes through high school and I knew that writing would be my life. Writing continued through college where I continued writing along with classes in public relations. This led to a job with a local television station where I learned how to create crisp copy that was both persuasive and easy to understand.
My writing career continued with executive speeches, film scripts, and live events. Success led to the formation of my own communications company and that called on my previous television experience to write and pitch compelling project proposals.
Multi-disciplinary success led to network television writing and production contracts with CBS Television and Discovery Channels, as well as other international broadcast interests.
A five-year contract with the Organization of American States broadened my scope, allowing me to journey deep into the jungles of South America and across the Caribbean Sea, where pirates still roam. On seemingly idyllic tropical islands I found black magic and dark intentions living just below the surface of polite society, and all of it was fertile soil for my imagination.
This is my fifth book and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did in the writing.
How does he keep doing it? I lost way too much sleep because I couldn't put Plague down, then I kept having nightmares about the bugs. Don't read Plague if you need sleep. Don't read it if you are creeped out by insects. And especially don't read it if you scare easily. This is not the book for you because it will get under your skin and burrow all the way down into your deepest unconscious and disturb you. Don't say I didn't warn you if you have a hard time sleeping and keep having the shivers every you see or think about an insect. Sweet dreams..." ~Scott Carroll, MD, Author of Don't Settle: How to Marry the Man You Were Meant For
Lawrence Miller has done it yet again. His Plague is not only well written but exciting and fast paced as you become enthralled with the realism of Bio-engineering being used in an unholy Islamic plot to attack the United States. These locusts are truly believable and relate to the jihadi “Last Days Prophecy” discussed in the book. We are again entertained by the team of Dekker, Galdur, Hannah Ahmed and others you will recognize from previous works by Miller. Dekker and Hannah Ahmed’s relationship is starting to take shape. The Flows are communicating again and play another key role in the success of the team. I have read all of Miller’s books and found this one to be a truly entertaining read and one that I hope you will do soon. ~Pat Orell, USA (Ret)
A demonically driven, bioengineered terror is about to be unleashed and only Adam Dekker stands in the way.
It begins innocently enough with a short holiday on the Caribbean island of Dominica, but the idyllic setting is soon shattered. Dekker and Hannah Ahmed, the beautiful SIS agent, become entangled in an international conspiracy that propels them through a series of heart-stopping and life-threatening encounters.
The unholy creatures, resembling large locusts, are created in a remote island laboratory but unlike normal locusts, these creatures eat the flesh of their victims. The laboratory’s head of security steals the seed broods, escapes the island, and sells the locusts to a terror group intent on overrunning Europe and the world.
The engineered locusts are a perfect terror weapon, ideal for eliminating the entire United States leadership in one massive strike, and keep America from interfering with the fulfillment of a jihadi prophesy. The terrorists need only breed a sufficient number of the flesh-eating locusts to create a swarm, and then release it during a special joint session of Congress.
This is Dekker’s most difficult challenge yet, one that will require all his skills to stop a plague from forever changing the world.
"These creatures are the perfect killing machine. Imagine one of your client organizations releasing these locusts in a crowded capital, say London, Paris, or Washington." From Plague
