James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 300 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.
Patterson and Ledwidge (Now You See Her) team up again for another fast-paced thriller. This time, however, instead of the usual man vs. man conflicts, the authors pit man against nature. Animals all over the globe have begun to behave strangely, apparently coordinating attacks against humans, but when biologist Jackson Oz tries to explain this to the world, he is considered a crackpot. Only when the animal attacks become more frequent and the daughter of the U.S. president is killed does the government call in Oz to figure out why. Jay Snyder narrates, conveying the intelligence and self-deprecating humor typical of a Patterson protagonist, as well as the suspense and quick pace necessary to move the action along. VERDICT Though a bit of a departure for Patterson, this work has enough of his usual storytelling elements to keep fans satisfied. Michael Crichton buffs also may enjoy.-Theresa Horn, St. Joseph Cty.
