Michael Spradlin’s newest book features another species of otherworldly creature – this time, a terrifying, genetically-altered breed of alligator living deep in the almost-impenetrable Florida Everglades forest.

Twelve-year-old Emmet Doyle accompanies his father, a noted scientist, who has been summoned to Florida to investigate a mysterious corpse discovered in Everglades National Park. The dead creature bears many resemblances to an alligator, but it’s much, much bigger and has been engineered in various ways to become a “super predator”.

Very soon, it becomes apparent that there are more of the monsters still living in the park and that they will attack humans without provocation. Who has created the predators, and why?

Non-stop danger and adventure ensue as Emmet, his new-found friend Calvin and Dr. Doyle race to find the answers to their questions before someone is killed by the creatures in this fast-paced story, the first in a new series, Killer Species.

Kids who enjoy adventure and science will very likely devour this book.
