Swimming Monkeys: Genesis
When Ryan Webster is summoned to a Miami hospice by his dying grandfather, he knows his hero’s life is about to end. A renowned zoologist and founder of the world’s most famous primate park, his grandfather tells Ryan about a remarkable species of monkey kept secret by the Webster men since their discovery in 1926, the year after the Scopes Monkey Trial.
He is genetically engineered. He doesn’t know by whom, where, or why. Nine men, ex-military, are on a mission to destroy a genetics laboratory and capture a genetically engineered specimen. They are supported by four rogue CIA agents, who have commandeered a test drone and a missile at a Marine base. The team attacks the genetics laboratory complex before dawn, during a raging blizzard. Within hours, seven of the men are dead, one is severely wounded and one barely escapes.
