The Delta Factor is the first book of th Thomas Locke mystery series. Two committed scientists, one a drug researcher and the other a government regulator, manipulate strands of genetic material in an attempt to cure a viral disease. The two scientists are driven by different motives to venture into the frontiers of genetic medicine. If they can solve the complex chemical puzzle, it may lead to a miracle drug of enormous value, both commercial and humanitarian. However, a staggering discovery reveals that the drug has serious side effects and immediately their scientific assumptions fall apart. Yet, when the two scientists attempt to bring their adverse findings to the attention of the approval board, corruption and corporate greed in the pharmaceutical industry pull them into a whirlpool of deception and revenge. In an atmosphere of fear, frustration and heart pounding pressure, they join in a life and death fight to avert a catastrophe by preventing the release of the drug.

The book opens as Dr. Deborah Givens comes out of her specially fitted Jeep Cherokee, opens the back door and retrieves her collapsible wheelchair. Though she felt alright at the moment, she had had little warning twinges in the morning and so she had decided to use the wheelchair and save what strength she had. Being nervous, excited, and in a hurry, her attempts to open the chair fail. Just as she is about to give up, Tom, a grizzled survivor of Iwo Jima, comes to her rescue and opens the chair for her. Usually, Dr. Givens hates to have her chair pushed by anyone, not even a hospital orderly, but Tom is different and no matter how early she arrives, he is always waiting in the front porch. Tom had kind of adopted her the first day, and Dr. Givens had long since accepted that helping her gave meaning to his lonely life. It was a typical veteran’s hospital, in the grim inner city Norfolk neighborhood. It was a rundown building whose cheerless architecture was made worse by the coils of razor wire topping the chain link fence. In the interior it was just as bad, the air conditioning was feeble, old fashioned metal beds lined the long wards, and sounds echoed from miles and decades away. Most of the patients were lonely poor old males. Many had been scared by a rough life, and almost half of those she had selected for her clinical study were cachectic, often an indication of long term alcohol abuse. Despite it all, these men possessed rock hard dignity and a burning gleam of patriotic, the result of having fought wars for their country. After 22 days of working with the patients at the Norfolk Veterans Hospital, Dr. Given had come to regard them as the finest men in the world. In her office Dr. Givens finds her two lab assistants, and they have very good news for her, the research findings are positive. Almost immediately Dr. Given is summoned for an emergency in Edenton and leaves in a chopper. Tom shuffles out of the hospital and makes his way slowly down the drive; the car is parked where it had been the last time. The car’s window opens and the occupant asks Tom for his report. Tom sticks out his hand, and after a length pause, an envelop slides through the window. Tom takes it and counts the bills. Satisfied, Tom informs the occupant that Dr. Givens and her research team had found the information they were looking for and that Dr. Given had flow off in a helicopter. The occupant satisfied, rolls the window up and the car drives off.

The Omega Network is the second book of the Thomas Locke Mystery series. Chase Bennett is a troubleshooter for a chamber of commerce in Florida. During a visit to an old friend who is a woman detective, Chase unwittingly becomes the essential link in a chain of criminal evidence running from an illegal drugs raid in Washington to telecommunications fraud in Miami. When Chase agrees to keep a set of computer disks seized in a drug raid by his friend, Washington D.C. undercover officer Carlotta Krepps, he has no idea that he will soon find himself embroiled in a web of political corruption in Florida, his home state. With the help from Matthew, his lawyer friend, Chase is able to trace telephone fraud and fake real estate transactions to a national network known as Omega Development Corporation of Miami. The organization is run from the governor’s office. Back in Florida, a chain of mysterious events unfolds. First his boss threatens to sack him, a shady entrepreneur pressures him on a land deal, and Carlotta Krepps goes missing. As he battles the Omega Corporation, new pressures force him to take sides in the debate on legalizing casino gambling. In the midst of this, beautiful and ambitious Sabine tries to rekindle their old romance, and Chase becomes suspicious that he is being drawn into a dangerous conspiracy. As chase struggles to unruffled the web of intrigue, he unearths political corruption and money laundering. This confirms his suspicions and solidifies into fear for his life.

The tension was palpable, as Chase tried to hold himself steady, determined not to show his oldest friend how scared he really was. Then the night exploded, spotlights, megaphones ordering people to open their doors immediately, running feet, shouts, cracks of doors being broken, more shouts, screams, and then gun shots! The first shot prompted a dozen more, followed by a moment’s silence. The silence was soon broken by louder screams than before. In the midst of it all could be heard disciple voices, disciple even while raised, trained to handle panic and confusion, and to exploit it to their benefit. To hide his fear Chase asks Carlotta what they are waiting for and she tells him the main objective of the police raid is to recover illegal guns, it’s not a drug raid. She had been asked to go along just in case something was found.

Chase pulled into his darkened driveway and cut the engine, he had driven the Bee line from Orlando airport to Cocoa Beach in an unprecedented time. He sat in his car and listened to the night sounds; music from diner down at the corner of his cu de sac, rattling palms, a hooting owl, crickets, and sea breeze. He was home, far away from the shouts, screams and the gun fire he knew would haunt him for a long time to come. He stepped out of the car, opened the trunk and stood looking down at the bag carrying Carlotta’s diskettes. He wasn’t sure why, but he felt reluctant about picking it up and taking it into his home. It was as though the act itself would be a commitment, a step into the unknown.
