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.

It's the only book I've never been able to finish... I usually will read anything, even if it's boring 1: for the sake of reading, or 2: so I can critique it and therefore better hone my own writing... but I could not even get past the first chapter, it was too painful.. example first two sentances: If Hank Aaron Jone's daddy could see his land now, he would keel over and die a second time. For certain and for sure.... First thought, terrible butchering of the English language, second thought, okay it's funny, probably just an eye catcher.... but it's not, the whole first chapter is written with poor language use. Now I know you're thinking, it's just his writing style, you can get past it... yeah I can buy that, what really made me put it down was that the chapter ends with pretty flowers sprouting legs and singing pretty soothing songs, and trying to kill the guy... not to mention the 'glorious' golden butterflies that 'gushed forth' from the flowers...
