Summary
Pregnant veterinarian Maura Kelly, along with U.S. Marshall Jack Menard, risks everything to unravel the mystery of a smuggler's cache of mutated animals, a puzzle that involves fractal intelligence, stem cell research, and a secret history of the Book of Genesis
Summary
"Baghdad falls . . . and armed men are seen looting the city zoo. Amid a hail of bullets, a concealed underground lab is ransacked—and something horrific is set loose upon the world. Seven years later, Louisiana state veterinarian Lorna Polk investigates an abandoned shipwrecked fishing trawler carrying exotic caged animals, part of a black market smuggling ring. But there is something disturbingly wrong with these beasts—each an unsettling mutation of the natural order, all sharing one uncanny trait: incredibly heightened intelligence." -- Publisher
