Creepers by Brian Dunn
Genre: Horror, Thriller
Where to Get It:
Think Tremors when a zany group of characters struggle to save their home after a genetically altered creeper vine invades a small desert town with an insatiable thirst… and a taste for human blood.
Doc Fletcher, an eccentric biologist in the remote Mojave Desert, has finally created the ultimate drought-tolerant plant: a genetically engineered creeper vine. It’s destined to change the world, but not according to Doc’s plans. Instead, this vine has a mind of its own. Mayhem ensues as the residents of Furnace Valley (pop. 16), along with campers at the nearby hot springs, run for their lives – led by wannabe date rancher Sam Rainsford and the nerdy yet gorgeous botanist Laura Beecham, who has come to the desert for a reunion with the father she has never known…
