Waiting On Wednesday (95)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that
spotlights upcoming releases that I’m really
looking forward to. Waiting On Wednesday
is the creation of Jill at Breaking the Spine.
This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:

Rattus New Yorkus
One Size Eats All #2
Hunter Shea
Lyrical Underground/Kensington, August 2018
Horror, Dark Humor

From the publisher—

Deep in the sewers of New York City, the rat population is growing. Dr. Randolph Finch is determined to break the cycle. His new rodenticide, Degenesis, doesn’t kill rats. It sterilizes them from reproducing. But nothing adapts faster than a New York rat . . .

City exterminators and soon-to-be divorced Chris and Benita Jackson think they know how these rats think. They know how rats breed. And they fear that Degenesis has only made these rats stronger. More aggressive. More intelligent. And more ravenous than ever . . .

After a noticeable surge in rat den activity, the Jacksons witness something strange. Without warning, the rats disappear—only to reassemble in a massive lair beneath Grand Central Station. Millions upon millions of them. Working together. Operating as a hive mind. Feasting on the flesh of the homeless below—and planning their all-out attack on the unsuspecting humans above . . .

Why am I waiting so eagerly? Well, every now and then I need my horror fix and Hunter Shea is quickly becoming one of my very favorite horror authors. I’ve had several of his books sitting around on my Nook for quite a while, waiting for their turn, but I recently read the first book in this series, Jurassic Florida, and was absolutely mesmerized by the campiness and fun of the thing. That one involved giant lizards; this one is about rats. New York rats, no less, and we all know they’re at the top of the rat heap. Besides…RATS 😉
