Jackson Oz knew this was coming. The animals are behaving different. They are acting out of character. Lions that were bred in captivity turning against the zookeepers. And I mean turning as in eating them. Then a pride of lions coordinate an attack in Africa. This one Oz gets recorded and people start to believe something is happening. But no one can figure out why. When Oz comes back from Africa, his chimpanzee has also been affected and he has done some very bad things.

Five years later, Oz is still trying to figure out the problem. Now he is married to Chloe who he met five years ago in Africa and they have a son Eli.The problem has gotten worse and even domesticated animals are turning against the humans. But Oz and his team figure what is causing this shift. And the answer is terrifying. Could this really happen? And will humans do what needs to be done?

This was a very disturbing book. It was very different from any other Patterson’s book. Instead of people killing each other, it is animals killing people. Let’s just say I will never look at a squirrel the same way again!
