The compelling first book in the new Thomas Locke Mystery series
In The Delta Factor, two dedicated scientists, one a government regulator and the other a drug researcher, tinker with strands of genetic material in a quest to conquer viral disease. Different passions drove them to the frontiers of genetic medicine, but if they can crack the complex chemical puzzle, it could lead to a miracle drug of immeasurable value, both commercial and humanitarian. Yet a staggering discovery reveals the dangerous side-effects of the drug, and suddenly their scientific assumptions come crashing down around them.
But when the scientist try to alert the approval board of their alarming findings, corporate greed and corruption in the pharmaceutical industry pull them into the cortex of deception and revenge. Amid heart-pounding pressure, fear, and frustration, they join in a life-and-death struggle to prevent the drug's release and avert catastrophe.
Suspense and intrigue on the cutting edge of biotechnology--and faith amid the realities of today's complex issues.
