It isn't a completely forgettable story but it isn't the greatest sci-fi I've read. Somewhere in the murky middle. It is a very short story-about a 20-minute read.

Young geneticist Rick Salvano, wanting to further his own ends, gets hooked up with a drug dealer named Diego Peres who wants the perfect "watchdog" for his marijuana fields. His plants, developed over a number of years by his father, are powerful and strictly sold to the wealthy. He ruthlessly kills anyone that tries to get cuttings to grow their own.

Technology has outstripped his abilities to guard. Detectors from planes can find the large dogs too easily. Besides, it costs to train and maint

A cool little story about what happens when you mess around with nature. The author did a great job of building up the suspense. Bats creep me out anyway. I may have nightmares now. A fun, creepy, short read.

A well-crafted story with effective descriptions, and good pacing. Subject matter is more relatable in this story than in the author's previous work. Enjoyed the author's writing style and characters and look forward to his next work!

I took to books at an early age and can still remember my father reading J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit to me at bedtime. When I could read on my own, my mother brought home books from the library for my siblings and me. She tells me, that I would look at the covers and say “not interested”, but if she left them on my night stand I couldn’t help, but devour them—the genres and titles didn’t seem to m ...more
