Earl Mason was your average small town pharmacist whose hidden sideline was manufacturing Methamphetamine for the largest drug dealer in southwest Missouri. In a failed attempt to improve his meth recipe and give these emaciated drug addicts a case of the munchies, he adds a powerful hunger enzyme that alters and damages their brain. It creates uncontrollable aggression and hunger which is focused solely on their species. They want human flesh! In effect, he creates a mindless cannibal that is stronger, faster, and impervious to pain. As the problem manifests, read how each drastically different town, with varying law enforcement resources attempts to deal with, and contain the problem. What would you do if 911 was busy? Written as a novel, the premise has turned out to be prophetic as evidenced in recent news headlines. They blame “bath salts.” However, one of the main ingredients is methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV.) The key is the first four letters.....Meth. This drug when mixed with a number of other chemicals can produce unimaginable effects on the hypothalamus part of the brain. Ever wonder why an anti-depressant can have the contradictory side effect of suicide? Simply because dousing the hypothalamus with chemicals can be unpredictable, and a known fact in the pharmaceutical and medical communities. So the human behavior I describe has already occurred when a man ate another man’s face in Miami, then cannibalism in Canada, then Louisiana. So who is next? Did you ever wonder what could be more horrifying then a zombie? Reality!

If you liked The Walking Dead Series than you're going to really enjoy Famished! The scariness of Famished is that some incidences in the book were written before they actually happened in real life! These evil growling flesh eating monsters can run a 40 yard dash and swim faster than most well trained atheletes because of the "spiked" meth induced drug they've taken. They also leap, jump, and have incredible strength! Forget about using a club, baton, bat (Unless to the head), or a stun gun because like The Walking Dead only a bullet will take them down.
A band of brave men such as former Seals and everyday guys come to the rescue of many of the town folk. But this isn't just isolated to one town nor one city! The Federal Government gets involved in a big way to help the brave men of Branson Company fight these flesh eating evil monsters.
The action starts right away and has you on the edge of your seat not knowing what's going to happen next! Famished would make a GREAT movie or TV Series! Fans of The Walking Dead take note of this book and author because he's on the cusp of greatness and worldwide recognition.
