Description-

  • A New York Times bestseller!
    John Sandford and Michele Cook debut a high-octane thriller series about a ruthless corporation, unspeakable experiments, and a fight to expose the truth. Perfect for fans of James Dashner's The Maze Runner.

    Shay Remby arrives in Hollywood with $58 and a handmade knife, searching for her brother, Odin.

    Odin's a brilliant hacker but a bit of a loose cannon. He and a group of radical animal-rights activists hit a Singular Corp. research lab in Eugene, Oregon. The raid was a disaster, but Odin escaped with a set of highly encrypted flash drives and a post-surgical dog.

    When Shay gets a frantic 3 a.m. phone call from Odin—talking about evidence of unspeakable experiments, and a ruthless corporation, and how he must hide—she's concerned. When she gets a menacing visit from Singular's security team, she knows: her brother's a dead man walking.

    What Singular doesn't know—yet—is that 16-year-old Shay is every bit as ruthless as their security force, and she will burn Singular to the ground, if that's what it takes to save her brother.
    From the Hardcover edition.

  • Publisher's Weekly

    May 12, 2014
    Adult thriller writer Sandford (the Prey novels) teams up with his wife, Cook, for a story of teens fighting a corrupt system, first in the Singular Menace series. After Shay Remby’s brother gets involved with radical animal rights activists, she goes looking for him, winding up in Hollywood. There, she falls in with the charismatic artist Twist, who persuades her to use her climbing and survival skills to get involved in artistic protests and other social activism. Soon, Shay reunites with her brother, who brings along the dog he rescued from cruel experiments designed to replace lost limbs through advanced technology, and Shay and her new friends must confront a ruthless secret project that’s willing to kill to keep them quiet. Sandford and Cook keep tension high, packing the narrative full of twists. Shay’s extended detour into social activism doesn’t quite jibe with the technothriller side of the novel, giving it a disjointed feel. Still, it’s a solid story with a strong premise, helped along by intriguing characters, shifting loyalties, and some exciting moments. Ages 12–up. Agent: Esther Newberg, ICM.

    Can a 16-year-old foster kid save her brother from an evil corporation? Can she even find him? When Shay's nearly-18-year-old brother, Odin, goes missing after the animal rights group he belongs to frees animals and steals data from a Singular research facility, Shay leaves her relatively acceptable foster home to find him. In LA, she's saved from attack by a former street kid and now trendy, rich artist named Twist. She agrees to help Twist with one of his politically motivated actions, and he lets her stay in his hotel for street kids. Shay finds Odin-but after giving her a mysterious dog named X, Odin's abducted. Twist and his crew of street kids agree to help Shay find her brother, but Singular's security division won't think twice about lying to authorities and killing to protect their illegal operations. Can Shay and her new friends survive their search for Odin even with help on the inside? Best-selling writer for adults Sandford co-authors this surprisingly languid thriller, which stuffs most of its action into the final 50 pages-presumably saving material for the next book in the series. The interesting-enough story is further hobbled by generic characters and patches of lazy, florid prose.The author's name will gain this book attention, but far better books are available for genre fans. (Thriller. 15-18)
