Sequestered in an underground bunker for their own protection, the NWIDI teams four amateur investigatorsjoined by a husband-and-wife flight crew, a four-year-old child and a dogare tasked by the President to serve as the first U.S. emissaries to make contact with an alien intelligence.
The Northwest Institute of Discovery and Investigation (NWIDI)
was conceived by Frank Morton in the Epilogue of Tractrix. It funded research around the archaeological investigations carried out by Frank and friends throughout the Seeds Of Civilization series,
including the site of a sunken pyramid off a southern island in Japan and a submerged lost city off the tip of Cuba.
After Franks disappearance at the conclusion of the series, NWIDI was finally disbanded by Tony Nicoletti. In The TEACHERS the team members, minus Frank Morton, are reunited for their most important mission yet.
In my first series, Seeds of Civilization,
I introduced you to Frank, Tony, Linda and Jim –
accidental adventurers who joined forces to investigate several of archaeologys many unsolved mysteries. In the Parallel Ops series, we catch up with each of the Seeds characters five years into the future. Join Jim (The Scientists),
Linda (The Informants) and Tony (The Guardians) as they independently search for that which was lost in the startling conclusion of the Seeds series.
