Jake Chestnut and partner Gary Landon own Seraglio, a company hired by a billionaire's consortium to exterminate zooks - victims of bite delivered metamorphic plague, a fatal disease that turns victims into rabid animals who move so quickly that a normal person can't see them as they move. Jake must discover why the billionaires paying Seraglio to clear a safe enclave for the elite are suddenly trying to kill his team.

The hardened men and women who hunt zooks have been on the front line of a virtual war for five years, killing monsters who were once people. Entire cities have been depopulated and nobody knows which way the fight for humanity's survival will go as America and the rest of the world become Zook Country. Jake relays Seraglio's story with a contagious blend of cynicism and gallows humor as what he learns leads toward civil war.

About the Author

Born in Great Falls, MT to an Air Force family, he averaged less than a year living any place until his late teens. He's lived in England, Iran, Germany, and nine states. He flew military helicopters for twenty-two years, seven for the Army, and fifteen for the Coast Guard.

Before the military, before the flying, and before he could really grow a beard, he met Teri. They married in 1982 and their kids were born in 1999 and 2004. They'll soon celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary with their two kids, two Eurasier dogs, and two cats in a beat-up old log home on a ridgeline in Peter’s Creek, Alaska. Bill completed his Masters of Arts in English on Groundhog Day, 2010, and now works as a technical writer/editor and sometime professor of composition.
