Torchwood: Excodos Code
“Aliens were here, and they slapped a best before date on us…”
Inner cover flaps read as follows:
From Torchwood star John Barrowman, and Carole Barrowman, an epic thriller that finds Captain Jack and Gwen in a race to save humanity itself.
It starts with a series of unexplained events. Earth tremors across the globe. Women being driven insane by their heightened and scrambled senses. And the world is starting to notice — the number one Twitter trend is #realfemmefatales.
Governments and scientists are bewildered and silent. The world needs Torchwood, but there’s not much of Torchwood left.
Captain Jack has tracked the problem to its source: a village in Peru, where he’s uncovered evidence of alien involvement. Back in Cardiff, Gwen Cooper has discovered something alien and somehow connected to Jack. If the world is to be restored, she has to warn him — but she’s quickly becoming a victim of the madness too…
John and Carole Barrowman have been science fiction fans since the third Doctor. They’ve collaborated on two volumes of John’s auto, a comic strip adventure with Captain Jack in the official Torchwood magazine, and a fantasy children’s novel, Hollow Earth.
John became Captain Jack Harkness in Doctor Who in May 2005 and appeared in eleven episodes of the hit show before taking the lead role in Torchwood. John has had starring roles on the stage and on television, including his popular BBC entertainment show Tonight’s The Night.
Carole is Professor of English and Director of Creative Studies in Writing at Alverno College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She writes a monthly crime fiction column and regular reviews and features for newspapers. She contributed a chapter to the Hugo award-winning non-fiction anthology Chicks Dig Time Lords.
