Overview

Capt. Gwen Maulder, a hardworking FDA medical officer is traumatically thrust onto the trail of a small, but mysterious epidemic of fatal seizures, all among young professionals. The culprit seemingly kills without a trace, no matter how deeply she probes. As Gwen attempts to probe the mystery, the opposition to her investigation rises, far out of proportion to its scope. At the heart of story is a chilling scheme to manipulate the lives of millions through genetic modification, conceived and executed by those in the highest possible positions of public trust. As Gwen and her allies attempt to overcome dangerous adversity the reader is left to wonder whether anything today can be truly safe to eat or drink or breathe. Gwen's story is as real as tomorrow's headlines.

What People are saying about this

Dr. C. Everett Koop
"Javitt has melded his professional and political expertise to craft a chilling thriller that should alert every reader to the very real dangers we face in the twenty-first century. His characters are compelling and realistic, very much like the dedicated people who served with me during my tenure as Surgeon General. His plot, while (hopefully) fictional, could just as easily be a headline from tomorrow's newspapers."--(Dr. C. Everett Koop, former U.S. Surgeon General)
Richard North Patterson
"Authentic and sharply written...Jonathan Javitt has given us a timely and compelling read!"--(Richard North Patterson, New York Times-bestselling author)
Janet Rehnquist
"Javitt has written a grab-you-by-the-throat thriller that could easily be tomorrow's lead news story. Under the guise of a compelling read lurks a keep-you-guessing plot that should cause any intelligent reader to worry about the safety of us all. An intrepid female physician, a town full of bad guys, and the safety of the American people at stake. Seems like a surefire recipe for success."--(Janet Rehnquist, former Inspector General, Health and Human Services)
