Darkness Falls (Mark Beamon #5)

Darkness Falls by Kyle Mills is his fifth book featuring Mark Beamon.

Mark is no longer an FBI Special Agent in Charge. He is now part of Homeland Security and really he is just biding his time to retirement. But like mozzies can find me in a crowd of thousands, all of the cases with the potential to end the world as we know it fall on Mark's desk.

When a new strain of bacteria interferes with the petroleum production in the largest oil field in Saudi Arabia and the leading scientist on the topic decline the invitation to investigate from the oil company - Mark is called in to collect Dr. Erin Neal from his home in the Arizona desert and escort him to the problem.

Because these bacteria exist in nature, the problem seems serious but not world-economy shattering until the same bacteria appears in Alaska's ANWR well. And when Erin looks at the data there is no doubt in his mind that someone purposely contaminated the well.

Now Mark Beamon is in charge of an investigation, that if not handled quickly, could turn us into the historical society from Scott Westerfeld's Uglies series.
