About the Book
This mystery, intrigue, and adventure story may be only a year or two away from real-life events. Two women scientists intend to capture DNA samples of discovered remarkable life forms within vents existing in the deepest ocean depths.
The older and brilliant scientist reflects only on the mission — while the younger, who is both bright and certified blond bombshell, is incessantly seeing every situation in terms of its sexual implications — or sexual potential.
The vents they intend to explore support life forms with a process called chemo-synthesis which lets them input methane and other noxious gases and ultimately output protoplasm. Their captured DNA could be used to transform energy equations across the globe, yielding food from gases now treated as harmful, plus fantastic medical discoveries as well.
But a dark application could also create deadly weapons too. Implications for enormous wealth combined with this dark side bring shadowy terrorists along on the expedition. What follows is intrigue, drama, and intense romances between both women scientists and crew members on their expedition, who may turn out to be the enemy to destroy them.
Deeptide integrates expected greed-driven intrigue with genetics-driven discoveries that may literally be around the corner.
