Tens of millions of people around the world are dead. Half of China is a nuclear wasteland. Mysterious flesh-eating spiders are marching through Los Angeles, Oslo, Delhi, Rio de Janeiro, and countless other cities. According to scientist Melanie Gruyer, however, the spider situation seems to be looking up.

Yet in Japan, a giant, truck-sized, glowing egg sack is discovered, even as survivors in Los Angeles panic and break the quarantine zone. Out in the desert, survivalists Gordo and Shotgun are trying to invent a weapon to defeat the spiders. But even if they succeed it may be too late, because President Stephanie Pilgrim has been forced to enact the plan of last resort: The Spanish Protocol.

Every country must fight for itself. And the spiders are on the move...

Press Reviews

  • PARMENION BOOKS
    Ezekiel Boone writes with the power and pace of a Hollywood blockbuster
  • DAILY MAIL
    Why are humans afraid of spiders? With a multi-stranded narrative that traps you as effectively as a silken web, Skitter makes the answer all too clear.
  • THE MORNING STAR
    Smart writing underpins the terror in this second instalment in a continuing series, which is sufficiently selfcontained to be highly enjoyable even for those who missed the first episode.
  • THE BOOK BEARD
    If The Hatching was a summer blockbuster then Skitter is its tense, page turning counterpart setting the tone for a brutal, all out apocalyptic conclusion.
  • CONCATENATION
    Fun and pacey and full of gore.
  • Nudge Books
    It is skilfully written and entirely gripping - I think it is likely to be a best seller, and I would recommend you give it a go...
  • For Winter's Nights
    a thoroughly entertaining, deliciously skin-crawling horror thriller that you'll like it with or without the spiders falling on your lap as you read it
  • The Book Beard Blog
    The inclusion of events and voices from around the world add to the growing suspense and excitement and, if you aren't scared of spiders, the idea of a carnivorous swarm of eight-legged homicidal maniacs, is enough to keep you turning the pages.
  • SFX
    Brace yourself for sleepless nights
  • STARBURST
    A rattlingly entertaining read
