Overview

Dan Andrews is a charismatic director of the space hydroponics program of the Department of Agriculture. The United States has built the program outside Earth’s atmosphere after terrorists poisoned the freshwater supply of America, thereby destroying the vegetable crops and livestock in the country and causing panic, starvation, and death. Andrews, however, is aware that the program is doomed; in the next few years, it will fail to meet the growing population’s food demands.
Robert Colson, a renowned top physicist, has been invited by Andrews to join a team of brilliant scientists for a very important top secret next-to-impossible mission: using Colson’s untested theory, they will alter the planet Venus’s atmosphere and move and expand the program there. To execute the plan, they will need Vladimir Stoli, a greedy multibillionaire Russian entrepreneur, to support the project.
Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., Senator Doyle is investigating purported irregularities in the hydroponics program and suspects Stoli’s involvement in the project. He plans to bring down Andrews and implicate the President of the United States. This, he thinks, will bring him a step closer to the White House as the presidential election draws near.
Dan and his team are placed in a precarious situation, and resting on their shoulders is the responsibility of feeding and saving the inhabitants of Earth. And they are drawn into a world of shady deals and political wrangling. Will they successfully reatmosphere Venus and build the program there? Will Stoli agree to help? Will Senator Doyle open a can of worms in the program? And ultimately, will Andrews and the scientists be able to stop the impending world hunger?
William Brown’s Coincidental Paradox invites readers to ponder whether sometimes the end really justifies the means. It also tells how far some people would go to serve their own interests and how low others would get to promote the greater good.

Suspenseful, creative, ingenious storyline and an ending that is completely unexpected.

Lured in by a plausible setting and thought provoking information, you're held captive on a page turning ride alongside engaging characters and palpable imagery. When the ride comes to a climatic halt, you're left questioning everything you thought you believed.
