Brock Clayards is a retired Royal Canadian Mounted Police (R.C.M.P.) officer. He is experienced in general policing, but also spent time in Ottawa specialising in counter terrorism.
He is now a writer – his first novel, Pacific Flyways, is a mystery – and his current historical adventure, Chasing the Dragon’s Tail, is inspired by Brock’s great-grandfather, whose exploits in the Boxer Rebellion in China, with early policing in Victoria and in the defense of Victoria before the First World War, stimulated Brock’s creative imagination.
Brock and his wife live on Vancouver Island in British Columbia.
Every year thousands of migrating birds fill the skies of North America. This year a madman plans to infect them with a deadly strain of the H1N5 virus avian flu, turning them into flying time bombs…and you thought the birds was scary.
