Our world is about to change in ways we can barely imagine. KILLER T is a novel about growing up in that world. Harry and Charlie are teenagers whose lives are shaped by a society that's shifting around them. He is a lonely Brit in his first term at a Las Vegas high school. She is an unlikely friend, who gets accused of mixing a batch of explosives that blew up a football player. The two of them are drawn together at a time when gene editing technology is starting to explode. With a lab in the garage anyone can beat cancer, enhance their brain to pass exams, or tweak a few genes for that year-round tan and perfect beach body. But in the wrong hands, cheap gene editing is the most deadly weapon in history. Killer T is a synthetic virus with a ninety per-cent mortality rate, and the terrorists who created it want a billion dollars before they'll release a vaccine. Terrifying. Romantic. Huge in scope. A story for our times.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Killer T is a compelling read as Charlie and Harry are battered by the tumultuous reality of a genetically modified world * Armadillo Magazine *
One of my favourite elements in the Killer T story telling was that the story jumped through time periods. When you met back up with the characters it made the changes in their lives and the world more dramatic * Dyslexic Reader *
I believe you should read this book with all eyes open, and your brain read to take it in. It definitely needs some time to gather all the information. Particularly because of how truthful it seems * Kira Curtis *
Charlie and Harry form a symbiosis of true love that has to stand the test of time and misunderstandings. Harry's persistence and Charlie's brilliance make the novel gritty rather than touching, and actually make you feel like you are experiencing life with them. What more could I ask from a novel? * The Cosy Dragon *

“Really good”

I was unexpectedly drawn in to this. I didn't know what I would make of this type of read and as I read more I just wanted to keep reading. It was different and I liked that, and it was unpredictable.

I like... More

Actual rating :: 3.75/5

I expected nothing less than 'thrilling' and 'exhilarating' from such an acclaimed author who's books I grew up reading and enjoying and that is exactly what I got.... More
