“Not-Yet-Detective Sergeant” Charles Burns hasn’t been officially named a member of a newly formed task force yet. That was supposed to happen Monday. But a brilliant young scientist has disappeared, along with his potentially lethal discovery.

Dr Nicholas Veda believed he could prevent the deaths of needless millions. But something went wrong on the way to saving the world, and now an unknown organisation plans to weaponise his formula.
Book One: DROWNING propels Charles Burns into his first mission: Find the scientist and stop his discovery from becoming a weapon against humanity.
SOMETHING IN THE WATER Book One: “Drowning” follows Charles Burns and a newly formed Major Crimes Unit of the London Metropolitan Police in real time as they search for the missing scientist. They must act quickly and quietly, and MCU2 has been put together 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.
