Dark Biology

My debut novel, Dark Biology, released October 25, 2013, from Harbourlight, an imprint of  Pelican Book Group.

Here’s the back cover copy:

Renowned vaccinologist “Hildi” Hildebrandt has set her sights on beating her brother to a Nobel Prize, and the opportunity to conduct experiments on the International Space Station might just provide the means to obtain that goal.

Chet Hildebrandt should have had that opportunity. But now he’ll teach a lesson to them all: his hot-shot astronaut sister, his philandering hypocritical father, and the CDC for not properly appreciating his work. One vial of a virus purloined from the CDC labs and released at his father’s marriage seminar should do the trick, without hurting anybody. After all, it’s only a mild influenza strain…

Or is it?

“With meticulous research, a fascinating story and brilliant writing, Dark Biology propels Bonnie Doran into a realm of storytelling once dominated by Michael Crichton. Crisp writing and a terrifyingly real scenario make this an utterly captivating read.”

“Bonnie Doran has penned a compelling, frighteningly realistic story that will keep you up all night turning page after page. Dark Biology is a winner and highly recommended. I can’t wait for her next book!”
