DEATH RIDES WITH THE TIDE! When a Seattle geoduck clam digger is killed by an impossibly massive dose of red tide toxin, super-intelligent sleuth Dr. Peyton McKean is called in to investigate. As he follows a trail of suspects and unusual activities, McKean soon finds his own life in jeopardy.
THE GREATEST MIND SINCE SHERLOCK HOLMES. Dr. Peyton McKean and his friend Fin Morton pursue the killer of Erik Torvald, a licensed digger of geoduck clams, who was found unconscious and dying of a massive dose of red tide toxin. McKean must use his prodigious biotechnological skills to solve this unprecedented mystery. Did Torvald die by eating clams or, given the impossibly huge quantities of toxin in his bloodstream, was he poisoned? If so, how? And by whom? McKean and Morton pursue the matter along a twisted path of clues and suspicious characters. Was it the Native American with shamanistic skills and a grudge against modern culture? Or was it someone else? As McKean pursues the case, someone begins to pursue him. Will he solve the mystery or become the next victim of the Blood Tide?
