FRENZY

by Glenn Lazar Roberts. The hurricane party went well—until someone locked the doors. Now pretty biologist Carmen Niles must lead her friends through an underground maze, triggering a deadly scheme to sabotage the medical research center’s genechip experiments. The party-goers’ only escape is through a labyrinth of rapidly flooding pedestrian tunnels, with drug gangs, psychics, a stock fraud, and one-minute piranhas created by experimental “genechips” based on the ideas of famous physicist Stephen Wolfram. Glenn Lazar Roberts invites you into the deep, dark places where flat, grey walls glide endlessly, twisting, pressing in, waiting to trap lost souls, whose denizens, known for the “the strange way they walk,” people can “see right through.” Few heed Ed’s warnings that this water is from the spirit world and that their best protection will not be science, but charms.

REVIEWS:

“A terrifically fun read! Glenn Lazar Roberts squeezes a lot of horror, mystery and plain old fun into his new novel. Its pages are filled with a host of quirky characters with monikers such as “Wild Bill,” “Carm,” and “Cracker,” and the brisk dialogue and tight plot will keep the reader guessing until the final page. My suggestion? Grab a copy as fast as you can, turn down the lights and read this fast-paced novel. —Jerry Mohrlang, author of Sarawak, and Mujahidin.”

“This is a superb novella to pop in on and be thrilled with. Lots of twists and turns, lots of pop back-and-forth banter, and plenty of surprises. It’s written as a thriller with a subtle supernatural element mixed in. The author’s style makes it an easy read, with a quick paced flow. Several fully developed characters, each with their own unique story thread, lead to a well orchestrated avalanche of pandemonium. For those looking for entertainment, especially some thriller / horror, this is a good choice. Will help the day at the pool or trip on the plane fly right by. Definitely recommended.” —Troy F.
