In 1934 a scientist in San Diego invented a machine that could cure cancer and a host of other viral borne diseases. By 1936 these machines were alleviating these maladies with a 100% success rate in doctor’s offices around the country. By 1939 the inventor had been discredited, his research had been mysteriously destroyed and his machines had been erased from the face of the planet.
Almost seventy years later, a group of research scientists uncover some hidden paperwork stored away in the archives of the pharmaceutical giant they work for. They replicate the machine and testing described to find that the apparatus can eradicate most of the world’s most deadly illnesses. They immediately make arrangements to bring this miracle to the world. Three weeks later they are killed in an unexplained airplane explosion on their way to report their findings at a medical conference in Sweden. Whoever was responsible in the 1930’s for spiriting away the most important invention in the history of mankind was attempting to do it…again.
Erin Corbett, a newly graduated law student and former exotic dancer and her high school boyfriend, Justin Michaels, a real estate agent currently under suspicion for a series of high profile jewel heists in Saratoga Springs, NY will be drawn together by the death of an old classmate to solve the mystery. She’s on the run and he’s collateral damage as she seeks his help and protection. They don’t know what they know, but it’s enough for the powers that be to authorize their termination.
For a fast paced page turning thriller this just what the doctor ordered.
