Uncaged (The Singular Menace, #1) by John SandfordA New York Times bestseller!
John Sandford (bestelling author of the Lucas Davenport Prey novels) and Michele Cook debut a high-octane thriller series about a ruthless corporation, unspeakable experiments, and a fight to expose the truth.
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.
Uncaged (The Singular Menace, 1)
The reader is immediately thrust into the middle of a high stakes operation where a boy named Odin, along with several other teens, are breaking into a high security facility. They are breaking in to protest animal testing and to take videos to expose the type of experimentation that is being done. Odin, it is clear, is a highly sensitive, incredibly talented hacker, whose expertise has allowed them to gain entry to the labs. His girlfriend, Rachel, and the leader of the group, Ethan, will not allow him to bring any of the animals with him when they take videos, but Odin doesn't listen to them and manages to escape along with the others, as well as a dog and a tortured mouse. Two of their group are wounded in the escape attempt and they are forced to leave them behind. The reader also learns that Ethan, Rachel and the others are part of a social anarchist group called Storm. While they tell Odin that this is what they are, in reality they are up to something much more chaotic.

Two Kinds of Truth by Michael Connelly: A Review
I popped into the Emporium shopping center in Bangkok last week, looking to kill some time before meeting a friend for dinner. Or was this the new one? Ah, there it was: the similarly titled Storm Prey. Not only was the dialogue flat and sophomoric, but the characters themselves were shallow and their actions inconsistent. Not at all like previous Sandford novels. All of which leaves the reader to wonder: Did John Sandford even write this novel? In past episodes of the Virgil Flowers series, the influence of any outside collaborator was subtle at best.
When the novel begins, year-old Shay, her recently-freed brother, Odin, their friends and allies Twist, Cruz, and Cade, and freed fest subject Fenfang are regrouping and preparing their next move. They learn that Fenfang was subject to hideous experiments in which the mind of Charlotte Dash, a U. Senator from New Mexico, was implanted into Fenfang. They all decide that they must expose Singular, and free the remaining test subjects. They have stolen vital information contained on flash drives which is feared will be made public. Thorne vows to hunt down the kids at any expense.
