For centuries, mankind has been the dominant species. We've domesticated animals, locked them up and killed them for sport. But a series of recent events seem to suggest that all across the globe, animals have decided no more. And so, we were hired. A team of people from different backgrounds with different specialties; an expert in animal behaviour, a journalist, safari guide, foreign intelligence agent and a veterinary pathologist. Our task: to find out what is happening with the animals, why it's happening and how to stop it.
Based on the number one New York bestseller by James Patterson (Alex Cross, Women's Murder Club) comes this global thriller about a wave of violent animal attacks against humans sweeping the planet. Starring James Wolk (Mad Men, The Crazy Ones), Kristen Connolly (House of Cards, The Cabin in the Woods), Nonso Anozie (The Grey, Cinderella), Nora Arnezeder (Safe House, Mozart in the Jungle) and Billy Burke (The Twilight Saga, Revolution).
Jackson Oz (Wolk) is a young renegade American zoologist who spends his days running safaris in the wilds of Africa with his best friend Abraham (Anozie), who has a deep understanding of wildlife. Shortly after the attacks begin, Oz begins to see a link between the strange animal attacks and his late father's controversial theories about impending threats to the human race.
Meanwhile in Los Angeles, reporter Jamie Campbell (Connolly) is intent on being the first to break the story behind the mysterious animal behaviour and seeks the expertise of Mitch Morgan (Burke), an off-kilter veterinarian, who prefers the company of animals over people.
Nora Arnezeder stars as Chloe Tousignant, a French investigator Oz meets in Africa. As the assaults occurring worldwide become more cunning, coordinated and ferocious, Oz and the others are thrust into the race to unlock the mystery of the pandemic before there's no place left for people to hide.
