Barcode Book 1: The Trial
Unexpectedly, the small town of Burton, Oregon is quarantined. The mayor has been given a blood stained photo of his family, a small note is attached. He has to make a choice: to go against his ethics for the good of his family, or to let a government programme be introduced into the town, population two-thousand forty-three, which will ultimately lead to their deaths...He decides.
While the town is undergoing "treatment" from a chemical spillage that leaked into their water supply, every member of the town is given a chip behind the right ear and a barcode on their left wrist to "monitor the chemical". The only problem is, that random people begin to scream out in pain then collapse causing mayhem and chaos among the townspeople.
Dr Rothschild is the only person who sees the dangers in the new chip, but can she find out why people are collapsing? And if she does, will she stumble upon something much more dangerous than she believed?
