ABOUT THE BOOK
Catastrophe is looming over the Central Valley of California. The honeybees, vital to the economy of this agricultural epicenter, are dying at an unprecedented rate. The U.S. government is desperate for answers, and researchers at the University of California-Riverside are tasked with providing them. But when the professors assigned to the investigation are systematically killed by a creature that imitates the honeybees almost perfectly, it becomes clear that there is something sinister at play.
Following the murders of her mentors, it's up to entomology student Tiana Lambrose to move forward with the research. Special Agent Stu Whiteleather, part of a team of FBI agents assigned to assist in the investigation, is immediately drawn to the lovely entomologist. Together, they discover a breed of bees engineered to be killing machines, which, despite Tiana's expertise, are like nothing she's seen before. The question is, who could possibly have the sophisticated technology to engineer these specialized insects and for what motive? The perpetrator wills top at nothing to keep investigators from finding the answer. As threats to Tiana's life escalate, Stu must battle an unknown foe to protect the woman he has come to care for, before she becomes the next victim in a dangerous conspiracy.
Clair Poulson always comes up with something new. The premise of SILENT STING is a fascinating one. Focusing in on a modern day problem, Poulson takes the reader on a fascinating ride into the world of missing honeybees and genetically-engineered killer bees. Tiana is a graduate student in entomology at the University of California-Riverside who is enlisted to help her professor investigate the disappearance and death of the bees in the Central Valley of California. But things take a nasty turn when her professor is murdered and she catches a small electronic drone spying on her in her yard.
Tiana is made responsible for completing the study which puts her firmly in the crosshairs of the conspirators. Special Agent Stu Whiteleather is one of the FBI agents sent in to investigate the murders. But in addition to developing feelings for Tiana, Stu must find a way to protect her before she ends up like her professor. Another entertaining suspense from a master of the genre.
