"The Gift" is the opening novel in P. C. Weber's "Hanging by a Thread" series. This four-book saga tells the story of Thomas Morgan, a brilliant but deeply tormented young scientist who sets out to discover a new cure for tuberculosis and ends up on an unforgettable journey in life. It is the hope of LGC Publishing that this sweeping tale of love, loss, sacrifice, and redemption will not only prove immensely entertaining to readers who live within the developed world, but also serve to draw attention to the global epidemic of TB that rages on beyond their borders. To this end, all proceeds from the sale of "The Gift" are being donated to the Stop TB Partnership via the United Nations Foundation. Patrons who purchase the e-book edition of this title will also be treated to a bonus preview of "Betrayal," the second book in the "Hanging by a Thread" series.

"Sometimes the truth can be a very strange thing …"

A lost recording of a mysterious interview which surfaces in a faraway land … random recollections of events from the distant past that are recounted with nearly unfathomable precision. Through these two distinct yet intimately interwoven narratives, "The Gift" introduces the reader to the extraordinary world of Thomas Morgan.

P. C. Weber's first book in the "Hanging by a Thread" series opens with Thomas contentedly squandering away his once-promising young life. However, a chance encounter with an enigmatic stranger forces him to confront the remarkable gift he has been born with, an ability that not only confers great powers upon Thomas but has the potential to destroy him as well.

"Hanging by a Thread: The Gift" begins an epic tale of one man's search for meaning and redemption in a life filled with unspeakable tragedy. Journey with Thomas Morgan as he sets out to find a cure for one of humanity's greatest scourges, driven by a legacy that is still to be written, yet haunted all the while by the searing memory of a love that refuses to die.

About the Author

P. C. ("Pete") Weber was born in Detroit and has spent nearly all of his life in southeastern Michigan. A molecular microbiologist by profession, he has conducted research on various infectious disease agents for over twenty-five years, holding positions as a medical school professor and a drug discovery program director in the pharmaceutical industry during that time. In 2010, he founded LGC Publishing with the goal of drawing public attention to the global epidemic of tuberculosis (TB), one of the greatest unmet medical needs in the world today. He has since authored the first two novels in his four-book "Hanging by a Thread" series, "The Gift" (2010) and "Betrayal" (2014). In addition, he has edited and written the supporting content for two compilations of newly rediscovered early works by F. Scott Fitzgerald, "The Dust on a Butterfly's Wings" (2012) and "The Princeton Collection" (2012). P. C. Weber and LGC Publishing are donating the sales proceeds from each of these titles to the Stop TB Partnership to help in the fight against tuberculosis.
