Author Sofia Diana Gabelabout this book: President and CEO of chemical giant Pest No More, Joseph Vogorev harbors a childhood fear of spiders. Using the scientists at his company, he has them create a neurotoxin pesticide that only targets arachnids. Arach-No-More becomes a hit among arachnophobes, making Vogorev extremely rich and powerful, and the world's spiders eradicated, creating global devastation. When Gale Pacalis, an environmentalist with a conscience and his own money, decides to take on the issue personally, he finds himself a target of Vogorev. With a group of quirky friends, including his ex-girlfriend and a teenage spider lover, Gale collects data to prove Arach-No-More's lethality. They have to expose Vogorev before it's too late and find a way to save the few remaining spiderlings still safely encased in their silk. But Vogorev has other plans, including more pesticides to kill off the swarms of insects covering the earth now that the spiders are gone.

• "What sets Pest Control apart from any other Michael Crichton look-alike is its attention to detail. Its scenarios are not unlikely and in fact border on believable - and that's what makes it a powerful survey of a great scientific discovery, a world-ending decision based on greed, and an even greater experiment to possibly reverse the impossible." — Midwest Book Review
