I wrote this in 2007, inspired (if that's the right word) by fears of what conservative anti-science forces might do to the US. It was a more innocent time.
I take no credit for predicting SpaceForce, nor will I accept any blame for its creation.
When Nick Horne, police crime scene exeminer turned science journalist, hears rumors of a leak at Helikal's genetic engineering lab in Western Australia's wheatbelt, he tries to contact geneticist David Mora for details. After learning that Mora has disappeared, Horne realizes that someone is trying to stop him investigating Helikal. Soon, Horne is not only fighting for his life, but must make decisions that can affect the world - but first, he has to decide who he can trust.
