The 1st in a new series – this was a rollicking race for the truth.
Jake is a trainee press officer for a government department. When he’s sent to cover a protest about a developer digging up a fairy ring, he wishes he was covering something more important. But then he sees something his bosses want him to forget. Something governments, churches and even past kings have wanted to hide. But he can’t forget. He won’t. He contacts a scientist friend for some answers and gets way more than he bargained for. Suddenly he’s breaking into a lab, being chased and implicated in murder.
This story reminded me of a junior Da Vinci Code. Discovering something that could change the world – for good or when in the wrong hands, with dire consequences.
Can be read on its own or as part of the new series.
