The Games by Ted Kosmatka

The Games by Ted Kosmatka is now available from Titan (£7.99):

“In a future where the most popular Olympic event is a bloody gladiator competition that pits genetically engineered life forms in a fight to the death, Dr. Silas Williams is the brilliant geneticist tasked with creating the US entrant. Desperate to win, his superiors engage an experimental supercomputer to design a highly specialized killing machine, its genome never before seen on earth. When the creature demonstrates inexplicable strength, speed, and — most disquietingly — intelligence, Silas calls in Dr. Vidonia João, an expert in extraterrestrial biology. As the contest approaches, the pair race to understand the horror wrought by the computer’s cold logic, and their scientific curiosity soon gives way to sheer terror.”
