The author was asked where he got the idea for this book.
It came, he said, "from my years of working with oil companies. I saw all the new bio bugs that were being used to clean up oil. I thought, what if you genetically altered those bugs."
It wasn't hard to find evidence in science where things that were altered went horribly wrong. From there, Pipeline Killers was born."
