BOOK: Seizure -- Kathy Reichs

Tory Brennan and her fellow Virals go in search of a pirate woman's treasure in Reichs's second novel for teenagers.

Tory is the niece of Bones heroine Temperance Brennan and unsurprisingly draws a little on forensics science to solve this mystery.

But the accent is more on action, with's Tory's pals using the heightened senses they acquired in the first book through being injected with wolf DNA.

As the quartet probe treasure maps, explore booby-trapped Caves and outwit gun-toting rivals there are shades of Indiana Jones, or more precisely 1980s adventure movie Goonies.

New hardback Seizure is fast-moving and readable, but a little light on characterisation and not as entertaining as its predecessor Virals.
