How far will a person go to obtain an astounding recently discovered formula that will not only restore youth and health, but possibly bestow immortality? For microbiologist Richard Draman, the answer becomes quickly and brutally clear as he works frantically to find a cure for his daughter, who is deteriorating from a genetic disease. After another researcher dies, her husband brings Richard a thumb drive of the data she had been working on. Soon after, his life is turned upside down as he is arrested for industrial espionage, his house and lab searched and his family threatened. After they slip away and go on the run, Richard looks up an old friend, a retired Special Forces operative, to help protect his daughter and find answers to whether the research on the thumb drive can save his daughter and others.
New York Times bestselling author Kyle Mills has already successfully taken on drug trafficking, religious cults and the tobacco and oil industries as well as other important subjects in his previous eleven novels. In this book he takes on the issues of pharmaceutical companies and the over-population of the planet, to name a few. His talent for creating an easy to follow yet complex story about some very important dangers in our present world is laudable.
This book is the epitome of suspense. The principals are pursued by dangerous men at every turn. The action is non-stop from cover to cover. The many characters are colorful and memorable. The matters addressed are intelligently presented in a greatly entertaining read.
