A chilling adventure beneath the streets of London where WWII-era bombs, government conspiracies, and science—gone very very wrong—collide.

Beneath the streets of London lie many secrets. Subterranean rivers carve channels through darkened caverns. Hidden laboratories and government offices from WWII offer a maze of corridors and abandoned medical experiments. Lost in the depths are the contents of a looted Spanish galleon from the days of Henry VIII. And even deeper lies a Nazi V-2 rocket that contains the most horrible secret of all.

Carmen Kingsley, in charge of London projects for the British Museum, and Scotland Yard Inspector Sherwood Peets race to unravel the mysteries before the great city succumbs to the English Sweat, a frightening disease from the age of the Henrys.

Unknown to them, their partners in tracing the disease began their own efforts more than sixty years earlier during WWII when a top secret British mission is sent to the far northern regions of Norway to stop the Nazis from developing a biological weapon that was to be airmailed to London via the V-2 rocket.

It all comes to a climax beneath the city with the discovery of a horrifying species of genetically altered “super rats” that threaten to invade London and the British Isles in a manner more horrifying than anything ever envisioned by the Germans.

Writer has great imagination. I was creeped out by several situations..especially because they were believable to me. Great entertaining read. Definitely fun!

In order to enjoy a fictional story that has unrealistic creatures , etc., one must accept the unnatural. However it is not complimentary to the story when characters in the story do unnatural things, ie. for a female to go into unfamiliar underground tunnels that are pitched black with one flashlight looking for someone for hours where there are man-eating creatures. It is fine for the story line to include monsters and aliens, but normal people should do what normal people would do unless they are special, like Spider Man or The Hulk.

I couldn't wait to finish this book which had a mix of historical fiction, romance, and sci-fi genres. The story line was predictable and unbelievably trite.

Enjoyed thoroughly. Now that I'm finished will have to find something else as fun to keep me company. Recommended it to many friends.
