Infinity Drake - aka Finn - is off on holiday with his mad scientist uncle when they are summoned to a crisis meeting. Scarlatti, a lethal bio-weapon - an uber-wasp killing machine - has been released by a pitiless villain, with incalculable consequences for mankind. UNLESS Uncle Al can shrink a military team to track down and kill the beast. But then disaster strikes - sabotage!

  • Alex Faulkner, age 9 - 'A confusing book that was hard to understand what was happening.'

About John McNally

John McNally is a screenwriter who's worked with Aardman, Sony and the BBC. Infinity Drake is his first novel and was written for his children (who, of course, knew nothing about it).
