In a not-so-distant future where society has changed considerably but
the problems often remain the same, a young policewoman from Paris is
dragged into a difficult, dangerous investigation that could impact
the very future of mankind.
Romane and Brahim have reached Algapower’s artificial island, with
the help of some cetaceans with a quite extraordinary behaviour. All
they need to do now is sneak into the laboratories, locate Romane’s
kidnapped niece, and find a way to escape with her before the
corporation’s mad scientists transplant a dolphin’s tail onto her.
Not an easy task, especially as Algapower’s found some ruthless
allies. But the two agents, too, have some rather unexpected allies –
and a revolution is coming...
After a global environmental disaster, mankind has rebuilt, but its
demons are still there. Greed, arrogance … Romane Pennac fights those
who would abuse nature once again. Volume 1 of 2 of this sequel to
Mermaid Project. Two years have passed since the event of Mermaid
Project, and Romane and Brahim have paid the price of their courage
and integrity. Ignored, even censored, by their superiors, they’re
now reduced to taking lousy private eye jobs to earn a living.
Meanwhile, though, the same cetaceans whose advanced intelligence the
UN had refused to believe in are attacking fishing trawlers … with
rockets! Before long, the authorities ask our two investigators to
take their old jobs back …
