Amongst the mixed reviews this book received was this, which is how I felt about, which is why I gave it 5 stars when I reviewed it.
“Dr. Norene Moskalski has come up with a nifty premise for a series. Her protagonists are a married couple, Kate and Jake Connors. The two doctors are research professors at Atlantic University’s Institute for Public Policy and Safety, which is dedicated to peacefully resolving international conflicts caused by climate change. They also serve as covert agents for a privately-funded, scientific subdivision of the Institute known only as the Agency. To heighten the tension in this premier book, “Nocturne, Opus 1: Sea Foam,” agents are forbidden to tell even their spouses about the undercover work they do.
“Nocturne” is a fast-moving medical eco-thriller that would make terrific beach reading if it weren’t for the subject matter. A normally passive, water-borne organism has gone rogue, attacking and killing beach-goers in the Mid-Atlantic States and coastal Europe. It’s up to Kate and Jake to find the cure for Bacillus nocturne, track down the rogue scientist who genetically modified the bacterium, and find out why deaths are occurring only among young adults in their twenties and thirties–before nocturne spreads and contaminates the world’s water supply[…]
Overall, “Nocturne, Opus One: Sea Foam” is an engrossing read, a thriller with substance.”
