The Fear Is Spreading

In the third thrilling installment of Ray Garton's six-part Frankenstorm, a biological weapon is accidentally released during a killer hurricane - and one desperate woman is about to spread the word. . .


Even with a massive storm front threatening to devastate the California coast, Latrice Innes has no choice but to deliver a package to an address in Humbolt County. She has no idea what's in it but, considering she'll be paid two-thousand dollars for the delivery, it's probably illegal. As a jobless single mother, she'll do whatever it takes to get the money. But when she arrives at the home of her contact - and the lights go out in the storm - Latrice finds herself facing a much deadlier threat. An elderly man is waiting, biting and scratching like a deranged maniac. He's a test subject who escaped from a government lab. He's infected with a virus that's turned him into a raging biological weapon. And now Latrice is infected, too. . .
