       Additional Information  
     
      It began with a few small items in the newspapers--dead dogs and cats, a mutilated child, a series of unexplained fires. Then, suddenly, it exploded into a full-sized catastrophe. Huge mutants--half rat, half man--began to take over the world, stealing children for slaves and destroying whole cities and their populations. Only a few people excaped, among them Tim Barrett, his wife, Jane, and a handful of survivors. Alone on the high seas in a small ship, they set off to find the island where Dr. Theodore Piper had been experimenting with a sonic death ray. They knew Dr. Piper was their only hope for personal and world survival--if he was still alive...if the King Rats hadn't forced him to serve their evil purpose...and if he could find a way to stop the spreading horror of invasion.
