She's forced out of hibernation when her nephew Steven and his autism service dog Shadow disappear in a freak blizzard. When her sister trusts a maverick researcher's promise to help Steven, September has 24 hours to rescue them from a devastating medical experiment impacting millions of children, a deadly secret others will kill to protect.

Yes. I enjoyed the story a lot. I loved the idea of it and how the different POVs happened. Shojai did a great job on character voices.
Yes. It's a scary concept and kept me going to the end.
She was great. Lots of different character voices and POV.
Yes. It lasts longer so if you did it would be too long but it was a good story.
My favorite character was Shadow. I loved his POV. I will look for more books by Shojai.
I have recieved this audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review.
I am very suprised that this audiobook has been hiddden away, I have never heard of the author before.I can see that she has written lots of non fiction books about dog and cat behavior .
So it's rather unusaul that she is able to write such a competant thriller(fiction). Obviously the backgroud story is her field of expertise, and this is very clear throughout the book.
Even if you are not interested in dogs ,or their behavior, this one has a lot more to offer, suspense throughout and an inventive and interesteing plot.
I was a bit dubious when I realised it was the author herself that narrates this book( only because of previous experience- its rare that the author does a good job of narrating books.) but Amy actually does a good job, my only (slight) critisism would be that most of her male voices sound old and croaky, but not so bad that it is annoying or a distraction.
Good Job :-)
I read the book when it first came out so I didn't know if I would like this version. It turned out I certainly did. Hearing the author read her book gave it a whole new dimension. It is a great story and I am looking forward to the next one. A problem I didn't expect is whether to read it or listen to it. I may do both.
