One betta fish, two dead biologists, three trysts, four suspects, and 35 pairs of shoes add up to complicated days in paradise for Special Agent Marcella Scott. Marcella gets into sand way over her Manolos investigating the death of a prominent scientist who washed up on a Waikiki beach with a bullet hole between the eyes. BioGreen, a genetically-engineered algae that could solve the world fuel crisis, has been stolen from the development lab - a hotbed of intrigue where everyone on the project has something to hide.

At the heart of these stories, as with all the best of Lovecraft’s work, is the belief that the Earth was once inhabited by powerful and evil gods, just waiting for the chance to recolonise their planet. Cthulhu is one such god, lurking deep beneath the sea until called into being by cult followers who – like all humans – know not what they do.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I thought this would be different. I kept waiting for scary, spine tingling, just flat. I will try reading more about the author. It just didn't grab me. Blaspheme I know.
