More Details on 'Origin'!

Just found a link this morning (via a Bulgarian rights agency!) to Headline Publishing's rights guide for the London Book Fair, where they are hoping to sell the novel to foreign publishers.

'Origin' is the first novel in the General Fiction section, and the write-up is as follows:

The secret of humanity's origin has lain buried for millenia. And now it threatens to destroy us all.

Scientist Evelyn Edwards and her team are researching ice caps in the Antarctic when they discover a body that must have been buried 40,000 years ago. But it looks like nothing they've ever seen before, it's not a primal man but something else. While transporting the body back to America the entire team are killed but Evelyn manages to escape.

On the run and alone she turns to her ex-husband Matt Adams, a former member of an elite government unit, and together they find themselves caught up in a race against time that takes them from Area 51 to the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva where they uncover the biggest conspiracy of all time.

Origin is a high octane cross-genre thriller that you won't be able to put down and will leave you guessing right up to its stunning conclusion.

As a completely unbiased observer, I think it sounds pretty exciting!
