Overview

When a mysterious stranger appears to be healing New York City's sick merely through touch, a media frenzy catapults him to superstar status.

When he then claims to be able to heal the entire world of hunger, injustice, and suffering just as easily as he seems able to heal a sick child, thousands rally to his cause, desperate for a savior to snatch the world from the edge of darkness.

But not everyone is eager to see the world changed.

Driven by their insatiable greed for money and power, corporate America, organized crime, even the mighty White House will stop at nothing to ensure the world stays just the way it is: under their control - poverty, disease, wars and all.

Hurled into a raging storm of bullets, doubles crosses, car chases, and conspiracies, a small group of loyal followers helps the stranger fight for his vision to become a reality. But what vision is that?

• Can he truly heal?
• Does he really want to end suffering?
• Or, with immeasurable wealth the prize, is this the greatest confidence trick in history, masterminded to swindle billions from a world desperate for a savior to save it?

On a roller coaster adventure crammed with mystery, shocking revelations, and pulse-pounding danger, the group slowly realizes there's nowhere to hide from the fate that awaits them and which will shake the entire globe.

Dare you read 'What if...?' - It'll tear your world apart!

What People are saying about this

Jack Nicholls
Of humanity and the state of the world, What if...? says a lot, says it well, and manages to achieve that remarkable balance between a really good story well told and saying something of vital importance without preaching! The ending is remarkable and not to be read first!"--(The Right Reverend Jack Nicholls, Bishop of Sheffield. England)
John Taylor
"Deftly and intriguingly written, "What if...?" is a thriller that fans of other novels such as "The DaVinci Code" will relish. Highly recommended to thriller fans everywhere and should enjoy a spot on every fiction thrillers shelf."--(John Taylor, Book Reviewer, Midwest Book Review)
Nicholas Grabowsky
"What if...?" is virtually flawless - Lee's vision is precise, poetic, and skillfully crafted. It's great writing with a great story, very well told. I really don't think the publisher knows what kind of potential success it is they have on their hands."--(Nicholas Grabowsky, Bestselling Novelist ('Halloween IV', 'Pray, Serpent's Prey'))
Brian O'Connell
"What if...? is a fast-paced tale brimming with surprises and twists. Well-developed characters and a gripping plot will excite even fans of James Patterson and James Rollins. Devotees of television shows such as 'Heroes' will find it especially appealing. What if...? is a very good read indeed."--(Brian O'Connell, President, REACT Services. Non-profit Partnering Consultancy)
Fiona Richmond
A fast-paced thriller, ["What if...?"] is also strong on environmental awareness. There is something about the concept behind the book which grips the imagination and makes you want to see how it ends."--(Fiona Richmond, Book Reviewer, Eco - the Green Online Newspaper, England)

Meet the Author

Steve N. Lee lives in the north of England. He loves travel, exploring new cultures and experiences, and questioning why things are the way they are, yet he's never more at home, or happier, than when he's having a laugh with friends over a beer, or walking Yorkshire's wondrous countryside with his partner, Ania (a therapist for children with special needs and, strangely enough, the great granddaughter of a writer - Wladyslaw Reymont, the winner of the 1924 Nobel Prize in Literature award).
