Not for the faint hearted! The nightmare began when Cheyne Morris was sent to England from the Denver headquarters of Denveigh Industries. Thrown into confusion by the death of the creator of the Delta Strain, and the loss of two laboratory specimens she is forced to make decisions which could affect lives. Multiplying at an astonishing rate, the specimens create havoc not only in Derbyshire, but in Africa where other specimens have been unwittingly exported. Fighting against a cunning and intelligent foe, Cheyne is helped by Greg Haslam, an ex biologist from the original project. Together they begin to track down the killers, only for Cheyne to come face-to-face with a mass of Delta Strain looking for their next victim. Ranging from Denver to Derbyshire, and impacting on Africa, the Delta Strain leave a trail of death in their wake. Only Cheyne and her friend Greg, along with a former colleague, can prevent a disaster of monumental proportion...
Dennis Houghton was born in Oldham in 1942 where he eventually went to one of the local Grammar Schools. He achieved a good number of O-levels but decided not to go on to University because of family commitments. Instead, he joined a local engineering company and continued his education whilst working. After a brief spell working in, amongst other places, a foundry, he was promoted to the technical staff. He was employed as a technical draughtsman where he worked on a number of heavy duty electrical and mechanical systems. He moved on, to become a sales representative for a company based in Diss in Norfolk, and remained there for ten years, selling electrical components. He moved back into Engineering design for a while, then as a complete change, drove a taxi whilst 'looking for a suitable position to offer itself'. It finally did. A further move saw him employed by a specialist component manufacturer whose headquarters were in Switzerland and UK base was in Worthing. He visited many major manufacturers of high-tech equipment, and had the opportunity of being peripherally involved in a number of revolutionary technical innovations. He was forced to retire through ill-health in 1989 and occupies himself by reading and 'pottering around the house and garden', although limited by his disabilities. His interests are many and varied, and range from sport (In his earlier days he played football, rugby, and cricket, and enjoyed many pleasant hours fishing) through science, to history. His previous novel The Cerberus Gambit is now out of print, but he looks forward to a few good years of writing.
