Microbiologist Dr Christopher Fadden discovers a microbe that can digest plastic. He tells his friend, Gerard, of his dreams to use it to clean the world of plastic pollution.

Gerard’s great-aunt Gwendoline also has dreams of a rockfall in a mine when she was a child and of a horse being injured.

But Chris Fadden’s bug may not be a benign creation of nature. It may be a biological weapon created to cause the collapse of Western society.

Gerard finds himself ensnared in the double-think of military intelligence and it is only Aunt Gwendoline and her dreams that stand between him and the forces that threaten to crush him.

Sam Galliford is a scientist who has worked in hospitals and medical schools in the UK and Australia, in the fields of child and maternal health. Growing up in Teesside, he learned a love of story-telling from a grandfather who told him rollicking tales of adventurers, navigators and explorers from the days of history. Later, when a work colleague described one of his scientific offerings as ‘fiction’, he recalled his story-telling roots and began writing his own short stories. The short stories grew and his first novel, Skyfire, was published in 2019. Rockfall is his second novel.
