SOMETHING IN THE WATER
A New Thriller Series by Dean Comyn
A brilliant young scientist and his potentially lethal discovery are missing. Was he kidnapped, coerced or complicit in a terrorist plot to murder millions?
Book One: “Drowning” follows Charles Burns and a newly formed unit of the Metropolitan Police. The Unit’s first mission is to find the scientist and his deadly bioweapon, and stop the terrorists from committing genocide. The missing scientist has developed a potent new vaccine and radical mass-delivery method. He and his formula have disappeared completely in what appears to be two coordinated and highly sophisticated operations. Little is known about the scientist, but his work has attracted the attention of more than just the Health Ministry. It’s unclear who knows that the formula has a fatal flaw, and could become a dangerous weapon in the wrong hands. An unknown terrorist organization, recently active in the London area, may be connected to the disappearance. Burns and the rest of the Unit must act quickly and quietly, and MCU2 has been put together by Detective Chief Inspector John Wayne to do just that: Act quickly, under the direct authority of The Home Office, and quietly, to avoid a panic spreading through the media. But there is little time before that, or worse, happens.
