Overview

Elixir by Gary Braver

When biologist Chris Bacon headed for the unspoiled rainforests of Papua New Guinea in search of medicinal plants, he had no idea that he would bring home a rare flower rumored by a tribal shaman to prevent human aging. Driven by fountain-of-youth dreams, he plans to turn the flower into an elixir of youth and health.

But as Chris begins tampering with the ultimate secret of nature, he unleashes forces that not only threaten his own family, but expose the world to unimaginably horrific consequences.

I read this book because I am a former student of the author I can say his writing is as good as his teaching. He is a great writer, and terrific teacher. I am honored to say I had the opportunity to learn from him

This is one incredible book. I've always enjoyed medical/scientific mysteries, but never have I been more fascinated and intrigued by a novel as this one. The story itself is so unbelievable that it's believable, and one twist after another in the plot and characterization leads you right up to the last line of the book wondering how it will end (and wishing it wouldn't). You will have a hard time telling yourself it's fiction because of Gary Braver's convincing style of writing. I recommend this book to everyone and guarantee an enjoyable trip!
