Kathy Reichs is Coming!

Kathy Reichs is visiting Little Shop of Stories on Saturday, November 6th at 4 p.m. to talk about her new YA novel, Virals.

Ms. Reichs, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Bones novels and producer of the successful Fox TV series of the same name, delivers a thrilling debut series for young adults. VIRALS is a wildly adventurous spin-off that follows the grand-niece of lead character Temperance Brennan and her gang of teenage “sci-philes” as they try to uncover a murder mystery that’s been buried deep for more than forty years.
 
Fourteen-year-old Tory Brennan and her friends live on the secluded Morris Island near Charleston, South Carolina. Their shared passion for understanding the natural world brings them to a research facility on nearby Loggerhead Island where they find themselves embroiled in a forty-year old murder mystery. While there and in a spontaneous moment of activism—freeing a caged dog for medical testing—the gang is exposed to an experimental strain of canine parvovirus. As they discover their virally-heightened senses and animal quick reflexes, the five friends race to combine their natural scientific curiosity with their new found physical gifts to solve a cold-case murder that has suddenly become very, very hot.
