Earth is dying, circling the drain on life support. The future of the human race depends on space exploration, but they’re running out of time. Parasitic insects are systematically killing the best scientific minds but no one knows why.

Mable Wilkinson is the last hope to figure it out, she just doesn’t know it yet. For years, her resourcefulness, intelligence, and penchant for problem-solving have put her at the top of a very short list of researchers, only she doesn’t want to be part of it.

Cast out at sixteen, Mable wrote off the problems of the world long ago. Now, her focus is on Hadley, her adopted little sister, and teaching her to survive in the cut-throat underground. Instead, both Mable and Hadley fall into the hands of the program’s recruiter, Silas Arrenstein, and he’s determined to have one of them. Mable can join up with the man and program who killed her brother, or she can leave Hadley to the same fate.

A new sci-fi romance from RS McCoy, author of The Sparks Saga and The Luminary Chronicles.

Book One of The Extraction Files.

  
The Killing Jar by R.S. McCoy (The Extraction Files #1)

The Killing JarThe great minds of humanity are slowly being devoured by parasitic insects and the how and why is unknown. The clock is ticking for life on Earth and priority #1 is finding a planet that is viable for population.

Prepare for the chaotic, the deceitful, the hopeful and the resigned, as R.S. McCoy shuttles us between different POVs in a mad race to stay alive between the pages of The Killing Jar.
Mable has always been brilliant, resourceful and able to puzzle out problems with relative ease. For her, what is hidden to others is obvious to her. Independent, tough and not inclined to help in the mainstream scientific community, she will become a key player in Earth’s survival, whether she like it or not. Time is running short, and she may have to accept an offer she cannot refuse, but will she be working for the wrong side? Will she have a choice?

Hang on for a bumpy ride, a cast of many and a kaleidoscope of epic proportions as R.S. McCoy threads us through the eye of the needle with each strand of this tale. The world building is vast, the tension will run high as each scene becomes another link in this exciting tale! Start to finish, intrigue that is so vast, it will take more than one book to tell this tale. An excellent foundation for a series that promises non-stop entertainment and questions just begging to be answered! Talk about a "hook" into the next addition!

I received an ARC edition from R.S. McCoy in exchange for my honest review.
