Former Larchmont resident and Mamaroneck High School graduate, Alison (Ducati) Colucci, will be at Anderson's Book Shop signing her new book "The Colony"
A series of gruesome attacks have been sweeping New York City—three men are found dead, their bodies nearly dissolved from the inside out. The culprit is a supercolony of ants: An army of one trillion soldiers with razor sharp claws and flesh-eating venom.
The desperate mayor turns to the greatest ant expert in the world, Paul O'Keefe, a Pulitzer Prize-winning scientist in an Armani suit. Paul is baffled by the insects and recruits the one person who can help, his ex-wife Kendra Hart.
When the ants launch an all-out attack, Paul and Kendra hit the dangerous, panic-stricken streets of New York, searching for a coveted queen. It's a race to unlock the secrets of this indestructible new species, before the President nukes Manhattan.
“Razor-sharp writing, scientific intrigue, and political brinkmanship create a story as plausible as it is frightening.”
— James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author
"Innovative, provocative, and exciting.”
— Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author
“Colucci…balances scares and science nicely. Michael Crichton fans will hope that this is but the first of many such outings from the author's pen."
— Publishers Weekly (starred review)
