Robert Howdon has just published his first book on how mankind is successfully utilising renewable energy sources; reducing dependence on fossil fuels and slowing global warming. The main issue now facing mankind is that of plastic pollution.


He becomes excited to hear of a program to modify genes in bacteria to efficiently digest plastic. This excitement in finding a way to eliminate plastic pollution turns to horror as he discovers the impact that genetically modified bacteria are having on the environment and people’s lives.


The perpetrators are aware that Robert’s discovery could discredit them; if the devastating impact of real-world trials of gene modified (GM) bacterium were exposed, the company would face certain financial ruin. However, as fatalities climb, and evidence mounts, the perpetrator becomes more anxious to protect themselves and set a course for a direct confrontation with Robert.

One will be silenced.
