Orangeberry Book Tours - Little Deadly Things by Harry Steinman


Cutting-edge technology combines with the dark side of the human soul to create the potential for terrifying destruction…A terrific sci-fi thriller that grips the reader from beginning to end.” Kirkus Reviews
When abusive parents raise brilliant children, you might end up with a saint, or a killer…or one of each.
Little Deadly Things is the place where science meets the psyche, where humanity’s future is in the hands of a madwoman and the family that must stop her.
The seeds of an apocalyptic race–to save mankind or to destroy it–were sown in the earliest years of two scientists. Young Eva Rozen witnessed her sister’s brutal murder, and barely escaped with her life. She found refuge from madness in the orderly world of science. Twenty-five years later, this master of nanotechnology is the world’s richest woman… and the most dangerous.
Marta Cruz also endured a troubled childhood. Her mother’s death and her father’s incarceration left her an orphan, and a crippling disease left her in pain. Marta’s refuge? A tropical rain forest where she discovers plants with miraculous healing properties under the tutelage of her shamanistic grandmother.
The two girls meet in high school and form an uneasy friendship that lasts through college. Eva wants power, profit–and Marta’s husband. She offers to fund Marta’s public health dreams in exchange for the ailing physician’s knowledge of plant-based medicines. Together, they build the world’s largest nanotech manufacturer.
When the unstable Eva has a psychotic break, and attacks the people who rely on her for survival, only Marta can stand between Eva and the death of millions. But Marta is a healer, not a fighter, and must rely on her husband and teenaged son, a boy who faces a life-or-death challenge well beyond his years.
Here is a chilling look at a future that is already on our doorstep–and a study of the two women who will decide the fate of mankind.
Steinman’s novel combines engrossing sci-fi elements, riveting thrills and a fascinating study of the human mind. The main characters are complex and likable–even dark and twisted Eva. Without taking the reader out of the story’s flow, flashbacks explore each character’s past in detail and lay the groundwork for the plot’s twists and turns. The result is an exceptional tale that’s suspenseful, gritty and endearing.” –Kirkus Reviews
…a work of exceptional art, with a sense of futuristic realism. I was riveted, page after wonderful page.” Tom Cirignano, 67 Cents: Creation of a Killer
A union of art and science in this thriller…Harry Steinman rips today’s discoveries from the laboratory and into an emotion-laden thriller with the promise–and peril–of this emerging science.” -L. R. Drennan-Harris, Ph.D. Analytical Chemist
