In 1989, a group of highly skilled scientists in a specially-designed high-security laboratory complex in Louisville, Kentucky, create a genetically engineered species by splicing together cells harvested from cicadas, earthworms, and African mosquitoes. In early spring 1990, the species is released in the name of rodent control, but when it turns on man and beast, things get ugly, and the military is deployed to stop the killer plague. What happens after the military operation sends a new wave of fear over a medium-size town just outside of Omaha, Nebraska, as a new species, far more dangerous than the bloodsuckers, attacks and kills anybody near it. What happens to the main character, Tony Richards, his cousin James Bledsoe, and three other people associated with them is absolutely horrific as they have to confront the danger head-on. In the wake of the second incident, the laboratory complex, in Louisville, Kentucky, is forced to shut down when dark revelations surface in regard to far more sinister and disturbing activities that were taking place within the facility's walls.

About the Author

Jason N. McKown was born three months premature, weighing only two pounds nine ounces in the winter of 1977. Too much oxygen exposure led to retinopathy of prematurity. In layman’s terms, he has retinal detachment. Jason’s idea for Nature’s Wrath came to him during a high school trip to Washington DC in the spring of 1997, during which he sat in on a debate about cloning and genetic engineering and whether or not it was ethical. When Jason returned home to Onawa, Iowa, his then place of residence, he started on the plotting for this book; however, he didn’t start his work on the manuscript until 2011 while in training at the Nebraska Commission for the Blind in Lincoln.
Jason found his strength in writing when he was thirteen years old and had written a detailed report on how electrical transformers work for the 1991 science fair. In 2005, he was sure that writing was what he wanted to make a career out of when, in early spring, a twenty-two-page college draft he had written had waved his English exam. Jason is currently living in Central Nebraska, and is a freelance volunteer contributor to the small-town newspaper.
