Stacy’s life is in free fall. She finds herself clutching a handgun, searching for a sign that tomorrow will be any better than today. Her cell phone rings, bringing an offer that may postpone her soul searching. The discovery of an airplane graveyard containing a dozen commercial airliners is shocking. When the salvage camera reveals them to be virtually undamaged under in the Indian Ocean, theories abound. Who put them there? How are they still in one piece? What reason could there be? Stacy is about to learn the answers to those questions, as well things she’d prefer to forget.

The passion of my mission had its roots in my youth when I rejected the dogma and doctrine of organized religion. I drifited in and out of several Christian denominations, always seeking answers to questions which religious people could not answer to my satisfaction. My joy and enthusiasm for life and learning have been sharply curtailed by the sobering reality that we live in a troubled world from which I cannot escape. I frequently think of the many children who go to sleep hungry every night, many of them wet and cold.

Is there really a spirit world? And if there is, can those disembodied souls communicate with the living? Can departed love ones speak to family from beyond the grave? These are questions Walt must ponder when a bizarre series of paranormal events lead his friend, Mary, to a treasure hidden away for seventy years, and a family she never knew existed. Walt’s ultimate answer lies in the words of the Professor, “There are still many things beyond the comprehension of mortal man.” A light-hearted look at things that go ‘bump’ in the night.

It is the smallest of anomalies. A tiny error lurking in Bob Ludlow’s DNA that could have untold consequences for civilization. Dr. Barry Gifford hopes that understanding this genetic error could provide revolutionary advances for humanity. Bob believes in Barry and his vision for the future. The two men team up to solve the mystery of Bob’s genetics and to develop a drug based on this inborn error. Unfortunately, in the cutthroat world of medical research, altruism doesn’t always take precedence over money or ego. Dr. Dexter Brunswick, a bitter man with a tough past, is strangely jealous of Barry’s accomplishments. Yet he needs Barry’s research to unlock the treasures hidden in Bob’s genetic code. Unlike Barry’s noble intentions, Brunswick’s plans are more sinister.

The offer - $20 billion split between four leading scientists on alternative energies to purchase and then squash their research lines, which include the recent discovery of a powerful new energy source capable of replacing mankind’s reliance on fossil fuels. There’s no doubt their discovery is worth 10 times that much. But will any one of them live if they refuse? At the same time, the greatest technological advancement in warfare since the creation of the atomic bomb has been discovered and is being offered to the highest bidder.
