By Neil Abramson
From the acclaimed author of Unsaid comes a suspenseful and timely novel about the connection between people and animals.
An unidentified virus is spreading through a New York City neighborhood. Desperate for answers, the medical community can only determine the cause is zoonotic, their theory shifting from an avian-source to canine. Despite the lack of information, the politically ambitious governor calls in the National Guard to enforce a quarantine of all dogs. As the situation escalates, veterinarian Samantha Lewis and her loyal crew must protect the animals in their no-kill shelter. But when Samantha is forced to secure the help of her estranged father, she will have to confront the painful past that haunts her. As he did in UNSAID, Neil Abramson explores the interconnectedness of humans and the animals who share our homes and lives, in a timely novel that will resonate long after you've turned the last page.
