Book Description
Following the fall of Baghdad, two Iraqi boys stumble upon armed men looting the city zoo, opening the floodgates for the smuggling of hundreds of exotic animals to Western nations. But this crime hides a deeper secret. Amid a hail of bullets, an underground secret weapons lab is ransacked - and something even more horrific is set free. Seven years later, Louisiana state veterinarian Lorna Polk stumbles upon a shipwrecked fishing trawler that holds a frightening cargo of exotic animals, clearly part of a black market smuggling ring. Yet something is wrong with these beasts, disturbing deformities that make no sense: a parrot with no feathers, a pair of Capuchin monkeys conjoined at the hip, a jaguar cub with the teeth of a saber-tooth tiger. They also all share one uncanny trait - a disturbingly heightened intelligence. To uncover the truth about the origin of this strange cargo and the terrorist threat it poses, Lorna must team up with a man who shares a dark and bloody past with her, now an agent of the U.S. Border Patrol, Jack Menard. Together, the two must uncover a mystery tied to fractal science and genetic engineering, and expose a horrifying secret that traces back to mankind`s earliest roots. But can Lorna stop what is about to be born upon the altar of Eden before it threatens not only the world, but also the very foundation of what it means to be human?
