Spiders consume 400 million tons of prey every year — so when Abraham Stroud, archaeologist and vampire slayer, unmasks a coven of ancient spider men in the caves of northwest Georgia, his personal terror alert goes to ‘High’. Then forensic data suggests the spider-creatures are extraterrestrial in nature.
Stroud’s investigation points to a predatory race seen in ancient Japan; and found again in Egypt. Persistent as any arachnid, they have returned, mimicking mankind while feeding on humans. If Stroud doesn’t annihilate this flesh-crawling menace, the “Skitters” may become humanity’s exterminator.
