During a trek to Loch Ness, Scotland, a young Charles Darwin encounters a mysterious and terrifying creature that provides a spark for his evolutionary theory.
Almost two hundred years later and across the Channel in Paris, the Eiffel Tower is under attack. Only through detective work, intuition, and a judicious application of high-tech weaponry does former Army combat engineer Tyler Locke prevent a massacre.
What Tyler doesn’t know is that the assault is just the beginning of a conspiracy so dark that it not only threatens the lives of those he loves, but could also ignite World War III. Racing against time to uncover Darwin’s centuries-old secret, he must solve a series of cryptic clues to find a manuscript that has been so cleverly hidden it hasn’t been seen since the Victorian age.
Tyler’s quest takes him from the bustling tourist hotspots of Seattle to the splendor of Versailles to the remote Highlands of Scotland in a battle to reveal the shocking truth behind the legend of the Loch Ness monster.
“Boyd Morrison’s THE LOCH NESS LEGACY is a fantastic read: part mystery, part thriller, part scientific exploration. Like his character, Tyler Locke, Morrison is at home with high-technology, the latest gadgets and the weaving of great escapes from the most dangerous of perils. Both are up to the challenge here, as the world faces a new danger from its warlike past, one that leads eventually to Scotland, the lake known to so many and the legendary creature that may haunt its dark and foreboding waters.”
—Graham Brown, #1 NY Times bestselling author of THE EDEN PROPHECY and DEVIL’S GATE
“A quartet of heroes worth cheering for, an enemy as sinister as they come, secrets from the past, more action that you can shake a broadsword at and the Loch. Ness. Monster! What more could you ask for in a thriller? THE LOCH NESS LEGACY is a perfect storm of history, science and action that is sure to please anyone with a pulse, and maybe a few without them.”
—Jeremy Robinson, bestselling author of RAGNAROK and ISLAND 731
“THE LOCH NESS LEGACY starts with a bang and delivers an adrenaline fueled thrill ride to the very end. Tyler Locke is my new favorite hero! If you like Dan Brown and James Rollins, you’ll love Boyd Morrison.”
—Allison Brennan, NY Times bestselling author of STOLEN
