If you are a fan of knuckle-biting sci-fi drama, you will love Zoo by James Patterson. This thrilling book centers on a biologist named Jackson Oz and his crazy theory called Human-Animal Conflict, also known as HAC. His theory comes after much research into the seemingly increasing incidents of aggressive behavior by animals toward humans. His findings show that not only are those animals that live in the wild attacking but, even your mom's housecat has been acting strangely. Unfortunately for him, and for all of us, no one will really listen to his theory.

Things take turn toward the bizarre as large numbers of crazed animals take to the street to hunt their prey, and that prey is us. The authorities become desperate and then remember the crazy biologist, but it may be too late. His race to come up with a plan that will need to be quickly implemented worldwide results in a very exciting edge-of-your-seat thriller.

Michael Ledwidge joined artistic forces with Patterson to write Zoo and many readers feel that they have really hit a home run with this book. Fans of Patterson, the well-known author of Confessions of a Murder Suspect, will appreciate the book though they will detect a shift in style from his previous works.

Once in a lifetime, a writer puts it all together. This is James Patterson’s best book ever.

Animals are rising up against humans—and may want to destroy us forever.

For more than thirty years, James Patterson has written compulsively readable, pulse-racing novels. Now, he has written a book that surpasses all of them. Zoo is the thriller he was born to write.

All over the world, brutal attacks are crippling entire cities. Jackson Oz, a young biologist, watches the escalating events with an increasing sense of dread. When he witnesses a coordinated lion ambush in Africa, the enormity of the violence ahead becomes terrifyingly clear.

With the help of ecologist Chloe Tousignant, Oz races to warn world leaders before it’s too late. The attacks are growing in ferocity, cunning, and planning, and soon there will be no place left for humans to hide. With wildly inventive imagination and white-knuckle suspense that rivals Stephen King at his very best, James Patterson’s Zoo is an epic, nonstop thrill ride from “one of the best of the best” (Time).
