A missing scientist and a deadly discovery. An unknown organisation with a global agenda and a new detective, who is good at ice hockey.
‘Not Yet Detective’ Charles Burns hasn’t been named to a newly formed task force. That was supposed to happen Monday. But a brilliant young scientist and his revolutionary discovery have disappeared. Has he been kidnapped or is he complicit in a terrorist plot to commit mass murder?
SOMETHING IN THE WATER Book One: “Drowning” follows Charles Burns and a newly formed unit of the London Metropolitan Police in real time as they search for a missing scientist and try to stop his discovery from becoming a weapon against humanity. 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. Burns and Major Crime Unit 2 has their first mission: find the scientist and stop the discovery from becoming a weapon. They 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. There is little time before that, or worse, happens.
“Steeped in sinister plots, apocalyptic threats, and political subterfuge, Drowning is the riveting first book in Dean Comyn’s Something in the Water series. When a priceless new technology and its creator go missing, a new British task force snaps into action to prevent what could be a devastating catastrophe. This thriller is timely and hard-hitting, combining well-researched procedural police elements with high-stakes anti-terror action. Dripping with attitude and brimming with tension, Comyn’s debut novel sets a promising stage for the series to come.”Self-Publishing Review, ★★★★
