Swipe is the third eSpecial for the Virals Series, written by American Forensic Anthropologist Kathy Reichs and her son Brendan Reichs. The story follows a teenage girl named Tory Brennan and her friends Hiram Stolowitski, Benjamin Blue, and Shelton Devers, as they team up and help Tory's famous great-aunt Temperance Brennan track down a mastermind thief.

Summary Edit

Having Temperance Brennan for a great-aunt comes with a few perks—including an invite to the famous forensic anthropologist’s book signing at Comic-Con. But while Tory and the Virals are taking in the legendary convention in all its nerdy glory, a priceless Terminator robot is stolen from the crowded exhibition hall. When the bot-napper threatens to destroy it unless a hefty ransom is paid, Tory leaps at the chance to help her aunt Tempe with the investigation.

Subtle clues lead the Virals into all the weirdness that Comic-Con has to offer—strange costumes, ferocious mock battles, and fanboy geekdom beyond their wildest dreams—but the Terminator seems to have vanished without a trace, and the clock is ticking. Can the Virals identify the thief and locate the missing robot before it’s too late?
