Calum Challenger is a boy with a mission: to track down supposedly mythological creatures and capture their DNA. But while Calum and his friends want to save these beings, an aggressive pharmaceutical company wants to wipe them out. In this fast-paced, high-tech story, Calum and a group of misfit mates -- a computer hacker, a freerunner, an ex-marine and a girl with a very big chip on her shoulder -- criss-cross the globe, desperately trying to stay one step ahead of their enemy.
'What a blast. Weird murders, creepy villains, fiendish puzzles, non-stop action -- what more could you want from a book?' Charlie Higson 'Lane's writing is detailed, with scenes of exquisite terror ... This is a world of shadowy conspiracies and sinister groups who have agents everywhere ... nothing is what it seems. A hugely enjoyable treat for budding gumshoes' Daily Telegraph 'The dramatic, violent ending leaves enough narrative strings dangling that readers over the age of 12 who enjoy detective fiction will grab for the sequel next fall' Wall Street Journal '... gripping ... fast-moving adventure that will not disappoint fans' Carousel
