Kenner is a bio-archeologist who was supervising and excavation in Peru. She got a call from Sam Watson, and old frend who is also a surrogate Uncle to her. He sounds scared and begs her to come home. He will meet her at LAX. He also requests she tell no one she's leaving Peru. Kenner heads home.
When she get there Watson is waiting for her at the agreed upon spot. The second level food court.
Watson is a bio-chemist and he tells Kenner that he discovered something at work. Something he needs her council on. He tells her it has to do with her Father. A man who was hot on the trail of Noah's Arc. A man who has been missing for three years and presumed dead.
Before he can tell her a woman sitting next to them gets up, trips and dumps salad dressing on Watsons arm. No one is hurt and the lady apoligizes all over the place. Something innocuous?? Not hardly.
Watson then tells her what he discoved will kill million, possibly billions of people. He also tells her that her Father had found the Arc.
Watson then suffers what appears to be a heart attack. He tells Kenner to go. Get away. The substance dropped on his arm is a contact poison.
Kenner doesn't know what to believe. Watson tells her to contact Tyler Locke, Gordian Engineering, He knew Coleman and can help her. Kenner doesn't know either Locke or coleman but Watson then tells her that those who killed him also killed her Father. Her Fathers research stared the whole thing. Watson also tells her Hayden, project Oasis, Genesis, Dawn.
Watson then dies. Kenner doesn't know what to think. Sam thinks he's been poisoned?? It looks like a heart attack to her but she gets the hell out.
She knows she has to find Tyler Locke.
So begins one great read. This one has loads of bad guys, Noahs Arc, a disease and a madman that Locke, Westfield and Kenner have to stop.
One great read and well worth those five stars
Not particularly well done, but certainly fast-paced and full of movie-type action.
I downloaded it and read it on the Kindle app for Ipad. I got it simply because I was curious after reading how Boyd Morrison had self-published an electronic version and sold quite a few copies before a publisher picked him up. It certainly kept my attention, but it felt a lot like watching a Stallone movie. I laughed out loud a few times at the wrong moments (at the ridiculousness of them) but kept reading anyway.

Page turner, lots of action, the villains
are really bad guys. The reader is taken
into the journey where you get attached
to the characters.
