Los Angeles. Traffic clogs the streets. Smog chokes the city. And eco-terrorist Zac Bunsen wants to burn it all down. He releases the Swarm, an airborne nanotech virus that targets combustion engines and detonates their fuel supplies. It is spectacularly, appallingly successful. Terror and chaos reign as the City of Angels explodes. Every vehicle is now a devastating bomb and every freeway a war zone littered with bodies and twisted wrecks. NASA astronaut Judd Bell and his best mate, Aussie chopper pilot Corey Purchase, are caught in the middle of the crisis with a blue heeler and a canister of counteragent. Together they must stop Bunsen before he brings the planet to its knees. Praise for Steve Worland's Velocity 'A brilliant rollercoaster ride of a novel. I couldn't put it down.' Hugh Jackman 'A cinematic blockbuster.' Men's Fitness 'If you enjoy Matthew Reilly or the movies Mission: Impossible, Die Hard or Armageddon, you'll love this too... Perfectly executed and fabulous fun.' Bookseller+Publisher
