Number-one New York Times best-selling Prey author John Sandford and Michele Cook debut a high-octane young adult thriller series.
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.

Nothing like typical Sandford
The narrator is terrible. Sandford's other books have great narrators who improve the story line.
Since they are a married couple, I thought the book would have much of the type of story he writes, however this looks like a book she wrote and he put his name with her to sell it.
She is one of the most irritating readers I have listened to.
The reader was so terrible that I didn't finish the book.
Should have left the YA knock offs to Patterson
This could have been yet one more James Patterson junk novels where a great author lends their name to another writer to push out commercial tripe for young adults. Teens unite to save the world from evil corporations. Oh come on, hasn't this been done to death. Sandford is one of my all time favorite writers. May be that's why this apparent sell out was so hard to swallow.
Kevin J Anderson's Dark Between the Stars
Voice has the quality of nails on a chalkboard. After getting used to the irritating tenor, Sands does to a good job of "telling" the story instead of reading it. Maybe its just the teenage girl screaming and wanna be hip team talk that rubs me the wrong way.
Is spite of everything else, the book did take a worn out plot and move it along at a Sandford worthy pace and it is well written. I just wish I hadn't known where it was going before I got half way through the book.
I hated it when Patterson decided to franchise his creativity to turn out mediocre dime store novels. I hope this series is Sandford's only venture down that path.
