The bugs have been building a hive underneath the Windy City, and when a private eye seeks out the son of a corporate mogul only to find the worlds largest insect spirit hive, all hell breaks loose. The bugs surge out from the hive, destroying the city of Chicago and the UCAS military tries to bomb them out.
We all know what they say about roaches and the bomb. Nothing kills a bug. Nothing. Now imagine a city full of pissed off, radioactive, magical insect shamans. Not good. It covers the creation of the CCZ (Chicago Containment Zone) and is the bible for how things went down in Chicago for the game setting, apart from its companion sourcebook, Bug City.
This was a better than average Shadowrun novel just on the basis of how much detail they went into to depict the overtaking of the city by the bugs and the effects it has on the world, both SINners and SINless. Required reading for Shadowrun fans who want to know more about how Chicago got be called Bug City.
