codeVirals 3: Code by Kathy and Brendan Reichs. Pub.Random House, 2012.

Hot off the press for Virals fans this is the one you have been waiting for but is it the end?

A dangerous psychopath called the Gamemaster has lured them into a life and death struggle by burying a Japanese Himitsu-Bako box on Loggerhead Island. Inside is a code which they break. They  discover that Charleston is under threat of being bombed unless they play the game set by the Gamemaster.

it is an exciting struggle. Everything comes to a head as a Catagory 4 hurricane bears down on Charleston. Will they find and stop the Gamemaster? Do they know him already? Did he lure them in on purpose? Will there be casualties? What part will the Virals special condition play in the story?

Exciting stuff co written by Kathy Reichs and her son Brendan. The action keeps you involved and the short chapters keep you in the book long after you had planned to put it down.

For High school students and young adults. If you have read the first two books you will hunt this down, but it also stands alone as the authors fill in the background for you. If you grew up on Alex Rider and Robert Muchamore books and you like forensic science and codes you will love this novel.
