Book 3 of the Animal Intelligence Agency series

The Animal Intelligence Agency is a multi-species non-governmental agency. Specially trained Animals and Human agents work undercover to save animals and save the world. Some of them have the license to kill.

MISSION BRIEF: When a pigeon delivers an urgent call for help, the AIA finds itself deep in an adventure that takes them from India to London to France, into the horrific world of animal testing. Two hundred monkeys are slated to be euthanized in a laboratory, but that challenge is nothing compared to the one they stumble upon.

Led by a mysterious mastermind called Alpha, the abused lab animals have rallied to take the ultimate revenge on their tormentors. Their plan is to wipe out an entire animal species – Homo sapiens – off the face of the earth, using a deadly virus. And only Rana, Bagha and Kela can stop them.

As Rana battles against time to save himself and the human race, he encounters a Shakespeare-quoting gorilla, a French socialite, and an overweight and overwrought Miss World. But deadly deceit and betrayal is close on his heels in the toughest AIA mission yet. Will he make it?

MISSION BRIEF: Somebody is on an extinction operation, stealing all the last specimens of highly endangered species. This mysterious crook has somehow managed to discover the impossible – a living specimen of Raphus cucullatus, aka the dodo. Yes, the same flightless bird that was hunted to oblivion in Mauritius more than 300 years ago!

This dodo has become the single most priceless creature on the planet and it must be rescued immediately. Without delay, Animal Intelligence Agency agents are assigned to this urgent mission.

Indications are that the mission will take the agents to Mauritius, America, and as far off as the Arctic Circle and the North Pole. They must not fail, come what may. This dodo must not die.
