Dogs

“Kress, a witty and engaging writer, creates chilling suspense as twisty as a DNA double helix.”
-Publishers Weekly

“Her style is devilishly inventive, her characters are more than cardboard cut-outs, and they wrestle with important issues – medical and ethical – every step of the way.”
-CNN.com

The threat of terrorism and biological warfare becomes all too real when the danger comes from a family’s most cherished pets. Tessa Sanderson, ex-FBI agent, has moved to a sleepy Maryland town in order to escape her tragic past. When the town’s beloved dogs begin viciously attacking pet owners and their children, federal CDC agents determine that the dogs are carrying a mutated flu affecting the aggression center of their brains, for which there is no known cure. Tessa offers her unofficial assistance to Animal Control Officer Jess Langstrom, who has been ordered to round up all of the dogs and quarantine them. Meanwhile some of the locals, unconvinced of the threat, are preparing to protect their pets by any means necessary. But Tessa, the widow of an Arab who roused the suspicions of her FBI colleagues, has another secret: someone is sending her threatening emails in Arabic claiming responsibility for the virus, and she resolves to go deep undercover in order to expose a deadly conspiracy.

Dogs is a topical, fast-paced, biological thriller that will scare you while it makes you think.
