With a fascination for dead bodies Tory Brennan, nephew to acclaimed forensic anthropologist, Tempe Brennan, she finds the remains of a girl who has been missing for over thirty years. With the cold-case murder suddenly hot and when they rescue a sick dog from a laboratory on the same island, it becomes evident that somehow the two events are linked. On the run from forces they don't understand, they have only each other to fall back on. Until they succumb to a mysterious infection that heightens their senses and hones their instincts to impossible levels. Their illness seems to have changed their very biology - and suddenly it's clear that the island is home to something well beyond their comprehension. It's a secret that has driven men to kill once. And will drive them to kill again...
'Mystery...fantasy...science...and heart-stopping action - this book is dangerous. After I read Tory Brennan's first adventure, I wanted more more more.' - R.L. Stine, author of Goosebumps
