All over the world, brutal attacks by animals are crippling entire cities. Jackson Oz, a young biologist, watches the escalating events with an increasing sense of dread. When he witnesses a coordinated lion ambush in Africa, the enormity of the violence ahead becomes terrifyingly clear.

The premise for this novel lacks scientific validity, and common sense.
For example, blaming the degeneration of the animal kingdom on cell phone use and petroleum products over a number of years is almost unbelievable (why hasn’t it affected humans?), but to try and make us believe that it could be reversed in three days by banning the use of cell phones and electricity, etc., is ludicrous!

And then to have the animals revert again after a few days again is insulting! (to everyone’s intelligence).

I have enjoyed James Patterson’s coauthor Michael Ledwidge’s writing before, but he just lost me with this novel.

The James Patterson novels have deteriorated over the last couple of years, and I am almost to the point where I will never buy a James Patterson novel again.

Most disappointed.
