Book Description

Marine biology meets genetic engineering. What could possibly go wrong? Follow Dr. Catalina Marsh and her crew from the Monterey Bay Aquarium as they race against time to discover why dead sea otters keep washing up on the beach in this character-driven, hard science fiction journey into the brave new world of epigenetics. A mysterious lab, a missing billionaire, a seedy looking journalist, ominous threats, disturbing discoveries, and, of course, a love triangle of epic proportions -- there's never a dull moment on the Central California coast! If you like stories in which it's hard to tell where the science ends and the fiction begins, this might just be your cup of tea.

Here's a sample:

Waving fronds of kelp broke mottled splotches of dim sunlight into patches that danced about the rocky seafloor. Very odd. Not a single fish or large crab in sight. No bright orange Garibaldi, brown dogfish, not a single wolf eel wending through the thick holdfasts of the waving kelp. An eerie undersea ghost forest. Juanito had never seen kelp beds that wern’t teeming with life. Even the blasted urchin barrens had occasional rockfish and wandering Dungeness crabs. But here the only animals were tiny scuttling amphipods and a few turban snails. His jaw clenched the respirator, and he raised his arm to halt their progress. This just isn’t right. Maybe they should … then he remembered the menacing voice, and he thought of Catalina. Juanito forcefully dropped his arm, and he and Florentine plunged into the kelp.
