But for Sheriff Vic Ransonet it was the beginning of a nightmare. People were disappearing without a trace. Animals were being eaten right down to the bone. Lush fertile fields of crops were being stripped bare. But the sherriff knew the evil that lurked in the barns, sheds, and homes of the sleepy parish. He had seen the creatures with his own eyes. He had heard the clicking of ther jaws, the signal that they were on the move to feed their ravenous appetites. And if he couldn't stop them, then every man, woman, and child would die, and Lapeer Parish would be wiped off the map.

    This was a creepy, crawly, crazy book! What do you get when you mix toxic chemicals with insects? Mutants on steroids that grow from an inch to twelve inches! Not only do they get big, but they are also cannibalistic meaning they are very hungry. Lapeer Parish, Louisiana with a population of a few thousand are enjoying the quiet life, until the mutants show up. When a farmer's herd of cattle end up dead and all that is left of them are bones is when the mystery surrounds the community. Then peop This was a creepy, crawly, crazy book! What do you get when you mix toxic chemicals with insects? Mutants on steroids that grow from an inch to twelve inches! Not only do they get big, but they are also cannibalistic meaning they are very hungry. Lapeer Parish, Louisiana with a population of a few thousand are enjoying the quiet life, until the mutants show up. When a farmer's herd of cattle end up dead and all that is left of them are bones is when the mystery surrounds the community. Then people start disappearing, but just a few at a time, so nothing really to worry about as excuses are made as to where the people have gone. When more people start vanishing, that is when Sheriff Vic Ransonet steps in and tries to make sense of what happened. Not only people, but pets, farm animals, lush crops, etc. are at the mercy of these mutants. The sheriff along with his deputies go to investigate the farms to find the people, but when they get out to the farms, all they find are bones of what use to be the citizens. Night is the worse for the mutants as that is when they come out in full force, but we are not talking about hundreds of mutants, we are talking about millions of them and they love to eat. The only way to know that they are in the vicinity is by the "clicking" noise of their jaws. The crap hits the fan though when the mutants bite some of the people as not all of the them die as when the toxin hits their system, they are driven to madness which makes them almost like zombies. It is everything that Sheriff Ransonet can do to keep his deputies alive along with people that have not come in contact with the mutants. Do they make it out alive? Are the mutants able to be killed? No spoilers here as you will just have to read the book. This was one scary insect ride as it shows what happens when toxic chemicals mix with our ecological system and things go haywire with any kind of living organisms. Giving this book four stars.

    Okay the only reason I gave it so many stars was because it was a fun read. This book read like a "B" horror flick, I totally enjoyed it because of that. If you do not like those types of movies than you won't like this book.

    It starts with a little spill. Just some toxic junk. No big deal. Until that stuff changes something. Creates something new and deadly. If you hear the clicking, it’s already too late. Another scary good story from this author with more creatures. I can’t tell you what they are. I can tell you they appear from out of nowhere, strip a body down to the bare bones in the time it takes to say, Oh sh#t!, and vanish just as quickly. No place is safe.

As the town is slowly cut off from the rest of the world, the reports of missing animals and people rises and more dessicated bodies are discovered. Once again, this author gave me horror the way I like it. Creatures, a desperate struggle to survive, and no guarantees that your favorite characters will still be standing at the end. I received this book for my honest review.

    Another great "nature on the rampage" book. Also, one of the few Zebra horror books that does not deal with a young child's horrific nightmare. This ones about a pesticide that was spilled in a parish in Louisiana. It effected only one bug, the cockroach. It turns them into giant, a foot long at the most, mutant flesh or anything in their way, eaters. The residents have to combat the bugs and try to survive. The President of the US encircles the contaminated areas so no one can get in and more i Another great "nature on the rampage" book. Also, one of the few Zebra horror books that does not deal with a young child's horrific nightmare. This ones about a pesticide that was spilled in a parish in Louisiana. It effected only one bug, the cockroach. It turns them into giant, a foot long at the most, mutant flesh or anything in their way, eaters. The residents have to combat the bugs and try to survive. The President of the US encircles the contaminated areas so no one can get in and more importantly, out. If your bit by these bugs, you turn into a foaming at the mouth mad person that will eat you just the same as the bugs. This book gets extra points for the ending. You sort of know whats going to happen, but there are a few curves that you won't see coming. This book wastes no time in getting going. It moves from scene to scene a brake neck pace. We get some planning on how to deal with the bugs, them, next thing you know, someone is a Periplaneta's feast. This book also reminds me of another book by William W. Johnstone that I read years ago called, "Watchers in the Woods" If I remember right. This one is with bugs. That one was with big foot type creatures that kill. I may have to re-read that one again to see if my memory is right. Very nice book.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This has got to be one of the best horror novels I have read. Really enjoyed it - however it is hard to find and my copy is falling apart, so I am scared to read it again.

    A short take: Intelligent, carnivorous mutant bugs and a handful of small town folk who stand out as more than bugfood. I give Johnstone a lot of credit for craft, as he ventures into genre cliche territory and extracts a fine story that makes for a fun and easy read. Don't let him fool you, kids: this kind of storytelling takes serious work to read so effortlessly. I probably won't come across another mutant bug story that is half as entertaining as this one.

    It was like any other spring day in Lapeer Parish, Louisiana. But for Sheriff Vic Ransonet it was the beginning of a nightmare. People disappearing without a trace, animals eaten down to the bone. It started with a small chemical spill that went unnoticed. The the roaches came out. And they were hungry. Killer mutant cockroaches! Quick little story that was pretty fun to read. I enjoyed reading the path of destruction the roaches caused.

    I read this book a number of times as a teen. Fun book, kind of horrible. Guilty pleasure.

    Crawling With Action Not an original plot but interesting enough to keep you r reading. The characters were mostly believable so nd the action was non stop. Overall a good classic B movie read.
