Genre: Dystopia
Location: FIC REI

I have to review this today as I have students all lined up desperate to get their hands on this copy. It is the second novel in the Virals series, Anthony Horowitz reckons anyone who loves Alex Rider will love this series. The author herself is a top forensic expert- so this stuff is for real. So too the plot.. To me it looks like pirates and treasure mixed with crazy new technology, but The Book Depository says this is a heart-stopping forensic action with a lethal twist. The Virals' home on Loggerhead Island is under threat, and only one thing can save it: a lot of money. A 300-year-old legend Rumour has it that notorious pirate Anne Bonny hid her treasure somewhere in Charleston in 1720. No-one knows where, but Tory Brennan - great-niece of famous forensic anthropologist Dr Tempe Brennan - is certain that the Virals can work out Bonny's cryptic clues. A deadly path, it isn't long before the Virals are on the right track. But they aren't the only ones searching for the treasure. Someone is following them, and will stop at nothing to get their hands on it. Dead bodies litter the trail. Time is running out before the island will be sold. Will the Virals' special powers be enough to save them?
