Ace 78575 The Steel Crocodile NF
The Steel Crocodile
By D. G. Compton
Cover by Leo & Diane Dillon
Matthew Oliver was enthusiastic when he received an invitation to work at the Colindale Institute. The Institute's computer resources had been set up to correlate research findings throughout the whole European Community - a huge forward step for Western science, and a fascinating project to work on.
Then a member of the underground CLC asked him to serve as a spy, to uncover the secret they were sure lay beneath the Colindale's quiet academic exterior. One day later, that man was dead, murdered, and when Oliver got to Colindale, he found that his predecessor, too, had been killed.
Something very important and deadly was going on at the Institute. But what? And how could a rookie researcher possibly unravel it and manage to stay alive?
