Description
A massive ecological nightmare--a worldwide insect die-off--permits microscopic dust mites to reproduce exponentially and turn carnivorous. Now it's up to a Brookhaven Laboratories paleobiologist and a ragtag group of survivors to find a way to stop the plague before the world as they know it crumbles.

display_description The good news: the bugs are all dead. The bad news: we're next. The change begins silently, imperceptibly, inexorably. One natural effect topples into the next, like an array of dominoes that stretches to every corner of the globe. Before anyone can realize it, the earth's ecology has utterly transformed itself. And the days of the old world are finished. In an idyllic Long Island community, paleobiologist Richard Sinclair is one of the first to suspect that the environment has begun to wage bloody, terrifying war on humanity. What initially appear to be random, unrelated events are, in actuality, violent eruptions in a worldwide biological chain reaction. Along with a brave group of survivors, Sinclair must learn to understand the catastrophe while it rolls around them, slowly crumbling a panicked world and energizing a reactionary fringe that welcomes the apocalypse. The survival of humankind depends on finding an answer immediately - or all else is dust. Charles Pellegrino, whose dinosaur cloning theory informed Michael Crichton's bestselling Jurassic Park, has fashioned a heart-stopping thriller which uses scientific speculation as the basis for a masterful exercise in edge-of-the-seat suspense. Brilliantly inventive, frighteningly authentic, Dust is a literary ride that will leave listeners gasping for breath as its heroes confront the final destiny of their species.
