From the Publisher
Tory Brennan, niece of acclaimed forensic anthropologist
Temperance Brennan (of the Bones
novels and hit TV show),
is the leader of a ragtag band of teenage "sci-philes" who live on
a secluded island off the coast of South Carolina. When the group
rescues a dog caged for medical testing on a nearby island, they
are exposed to an experimental strain of canine parvovirus that
changes their lives forever.
As the friends discover their heightened senses and animal-quick
reflexes, they must combine their scientific curiosity with their
newfound physical gifts to solve a cold-case murder that has
suddenly become very hot-if they can stay alive long enough to
catch the killer''s scent.
Fortunately, they are now more than friends- they''re a pack.
They are Virals.
