In the midst of a biological apocalypse it's business as usual on planet Earth. Somebody needs to step up. Brilliant geneticist and avid mountain biker Andy Morrell has a plan. Officially researching techniques to prolong life at the TransGenesis Institute, Andy has a few clandestine projects up his sleeve. Secrecy is paramount but he needs the unwitting assistance of a beautiful neurologist, Persephone, whose research into the brain really gets her inside his head. A sudden interest in the work at TransGenesis from mysterious, unknown sources only serves to complicate matters... Proving you don’t need an Aston Martin, vodka martini and license to kill to save the world, Andy Morrell takes on the challenge with a mountain bike, craft beer and a PhD in Genetics. Andy and Persephone are joined by a cohort of crazy colleagues, variously, foul-mouthed, OCD, wanna-be punk rockers and a particularly annoying manager. The story takes the reader from lab work, industrial espionage, bioethical violations and kidnapping in Fort Collins Colorado, to run-ins with armed poachers and the Lords’ Resistance Army in Africa. There's an anti-social bullfrog, a super-intelligent mouse, a kid with Progeria, plenty of music and a punk band too. Brilliant Disguise is the first book in the Defenders Of Gaia series and is followed by Distant Sun.
