"McGoran fluidly blends science and suspense in his outstanding second eco-thriller."―Publishers Weekly

In the exciting follow-up to Drift, Jon McGoran has taken these facts to Martha's Vineyard and added in a couple of squabbling, ruthless, puffed-up, self-important, power-crazed, greedy purveyors of corporate lies opposed by Detective Doyle Carrick and his girlfriend, Nola Watkins, along with their mutual friend Moose, a beautiful scientist (Annalisa), and a somewhat skeptical local cop named Jimmy Frank, and brought us another joy ride of a thriller! Throw a couple of unexplained deaths and a mysterious disappearance, and we're off and running!
McGoran's ability to serve up science in a palatable way to us non-scientific types remains true to form as Carrick learns the facts so he can find the perpetrators while dodging Frankenbees, bullets, and mercenaries serving as "security guards." He creates believable, well-rounded characters, some much more flawed than others, for us to love, root for, feel sorry for, or downright want to punch into the next millennium, which is an art in itself.
This book kept me reading late into the night so I could finish it. But don't take my word for it. Read it.
