Summary
Years after armed men loot the city zoo in Baghdad, Lorna Polk, a Louisiana state veterinarian, discovers strangely deformed animals with a heightened intelligence in the cargo of a shipwrecked fishing trawler and must track down the one that got free, but she will need help from a man from her past, U.S. Border Patrol agent Jack Menard
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
