"In Mark Dowson's second in a series, ReCognition - Co-anda 19 Vaccine, Mark pens a story ripped from future headlines. Mark's storytelling serves as a form of stealth education concerning earth sciences - environmentalism, & climate change, where one is entertained, informed, and motivated for change. His story is not only fictional, but factual through his own research, personal experience and observations of the world. He educates his audience as a polymath on subjects from; history, arthistory, science, geography, economics, politics, and psychology." -DENNIS WOODS, author of Black Flag Journals, One Soldier's Experience in America's Longest War.
"Really impressive debut novel from Mark Dowson and I look forward to Part 2. It's well researched (very topical) and well paced/plotted. I would put it in the same genre and league as Michael Crichton, Iain M Banks, Dan Brown et al. While reading it I couldn't help but feel it would work extremely well in a more visual format - I think it would make a superb TV series. Here's hoping Prime or Netflix pick it up." -ELIN - Goodreads reviewer. www.goodreads.com

Mark has also introduced today's global concerns as a crucial theme, and if that isn't enough, he's cleverly focused on mental health too. You'll need to concentrate, but that's its magic. This, the middle of Mark's trilogy sets things up nicely for the third book finalé. Once again it's a fast-paced read full of thought provoking science based drama with just a touch of sci-fi to embellish the storyline. It's up to date making use of the Coronavirus and yet still manages to draw the reader into the future and the past.
