A ten-thousand-year-old egg sac has been found at the Nazca Lines in Peru and is sent to a laboratory in Washington, D.C. where it hatches and an ancient species of killer spiders emerge. Now the black, skittering mass is causing global pandemonium.
This book is told from multiple perspectives - people from all over the world where these giant, man-eating spiders are out of control. It quickly became boring reading about these people. I wanted the main characters to be the spiders but they play a minor role compared to these peoples' lives and how they're preparing for and dealing with the spiders. It was disappointing.
