when the ONR's new head decided to eliminate the 'crack-pot' programs his predecessor had okayed, Shaw's research project, which was within a month of being finished, was shelved and even worse, she was told that all research done to date was theirs, not Shaw's and to prove it, they remotely removed it all from her computers.

"Deep in the Caribbean Sea, a small group of marine biologists are quietly on the verge of making history. Alison Shaw and her team are preparing to translate the first two-way conversation with the planet's second smartest species. But the team discovers much more from their dolphins than they ever expected when a secret object is revealed on the ocean floor – one that was never supposed to be found. Alison must quickly piece together a dangerous puzzle, and the most frightening piece is located in the depths of Antarctica. Now time is running out... and our understanding of the world is about to change forever."

"Just one year ago Alison Shaw and her team of marine biologists stunned the world with an incredible breakthrough. And now, they're about to do it again.
But an ocean away, something strange is unfolding. Along a lonely coast in South America, an experimental Russian submarine, long thought to have been dismantled, has suddenly resurfaced. And the U.S. Navy has taken notice, sending officers John Clay and Steve Caesare to investigate. The sub has been studying a group of unmarked soldiers, disappearing into the jungle each night beneath the cover of darkness. Something has been discovered... something big. And it's about to fall into the wrong hands. Unless Alison Shaw and her team can find something that no one else can."

"In 1984 a doomsday vault was constructed on a remote island in the Arctic Ocean to preserve Earth's genetic history in the event of a global catastrophe.
Now, decades later, a second vault has been uncovered. This one resting where no one ever expected. And the problem is... it's not ours. Even more curious is the seeds inside the vault. Millions of seeds, each with a genetic embryo untouched and perfectly preserved. Waiting. No one knows who built it. Or when. Now a small group of marine biologists and navy investigators have been assigned to find out. Before anyone else does. But Alison Shaw and John Clay are not prepared for what they are about to uncover. Beginning with the truth behind our own evolution."

"Hundreds of thousands of years ago in Ethiopia, a handful of genetic mutations split the primates from man and humanity was born. Now, eons later, further splits from the apes are being unearthed. And with them, a disturbing realization. Our split was only one of many. And yet we survived because humans had something the others did not – a unique ingredient that has only now been rediscovered. First in the mountains of South America, where it was promptly destroyed by the Chinese. And now a second source in Africa. The epicenter of mankind's very inception. A place that John Clay and Alison Shaw must find quickly. Because the Russians already know what we are searching for. And the Chinese want back what is rightfully theirs. The mother of all secrets awaits the world, in Africa. One that will not only explain who we are, but will decipher the very code within our own DNA."

"The world is losing hope. Political and social infighting threaten to destroy the world. Rancor and hatred only grow stronger, engulfing entire nations. And each day moral and economic strife brings embroiled countries ever closer to war. But hope is not dead. Everywhere, pockets of honor and compassion continue to persevere. Where human lives are cherished and valor endures. And one small, extraordinary group fights to save us all. A team in possession of the mother of all secrets. The one secret – the one discovery – that could bring the world back from the brink."

6 Echo Echo
Written by Michael C. Grumley
Copyright: 2021

"It began with a breakthrough. In interspecies communication. Leading both John Clay and Alison Shaw through a series of startling discoveries and life-altering revelations. Divulging who we really are as a species. Why we are here...and who is here with us. And the greatest lesson of all, that our brains are not as rare and unique as humans had assumed. But rather just one of three brains between three extraordinary species. All influenced by a fluke of evolution and something that should never have existed on Earth in the first place. Something we are now finally on the verge of understanding. It will take more than just one brain to do it. More than just one species. And courage from all three. Courage in the face of those still trying to stop Clay and Alison before their stranglehold on the world is lost. But Clay and his team already know the truth. That there is no courage without fear, and no victory without sacrifice."
