The Syndrome

Dr. Jeff Duran suffers from severe panic attacks when he ventures too far outside his home office.

Suddenly targeted by unknown assassins, he and Adrienne must run for their very lives.

Publisher's Summary

A promising research fellow for a venerable think tank in Zurich is forced into a grisly experiment...A seductive young woman coolly sharpshoots an old man in a wheelchair as he basks in the late afternoon sun...A psychologist who helps patients confront past trauma battles his own silent demons...In The Syndrome, John Case combines these intriguing elements into a pulse-pounding, mind-twisting new thriller.

Dr. Jeff Duran suffers from severe panic attacks when he ventures too far outside his home office. And he is inexplicably haunted by mysterious memories, and phrases of a foreign language he never learned. Then, after a patient tormented by "recovered" memories commits suicide - and her half-sister, Adrienne Cope, blames Duran - his life spirals out of control.

Suddenly targeted by unknown assassins, he and Adrienne must run for their very lives. Forced to trust each other, they must now work together to unlock the reason why one or both of them is marked for death. For beneath the intrigue lies a dark conspiracy that stretches halfway around the world - and a sinister plot that could change the course of history.

A relentlessly paced thriller in which nothing is what it seems, no one can be trusted, and nothing is secure - especially one's own memories - The Syndrome is a chillingly, brilliantly conceived novel from a proven master of suspense.

What the Critics Say

"[It] is one of the few science-mysteries I have read that is impeccable in plot, immaculate in story resolution, and moves with high skill from locale to locale and from suspense to suspense. What a very good, virtuoso read." (Norman Mailer on The Genesis Code)

    "Gripping yarn!"

    Wasn't quite sure where Case was going with this story at the outset, but as the story unfolded, it got more and more involving. The characters are well rounded, and the story is has enough twists and turns to keep you tracking along , but still engaged. Dragged about in parts, but wonderful narration by Dick Hill keeps you in the grasp of the story. Well worth it in my estimation.
