Publisher's Summary

Two secret societies vie for control of the ultimate medical miracle - panacea - in the latest audiobook by New York Times best-selling author F. Paul Wilson.

Medical examiner Laura Hanning has two charred corpses and no answers. Both bear mysterious tattoos but exhibit no known cause of death. Their only connection to one another is a string of puzzling miracle cures. Her preliminary investigation points to a cult in the possession of the fabled panacea - the substance that can cure all ills - but that's impossible.

Laura finds herself unknowingly enmeshed in an ancient conflict between the secretive keepers of the panacea and the equally secretive and far more deadly group known only as 536, a brotherhood that fervently believes God intends for humanity to suffer, not be cured. Laura doesn't believe in the panacea, but that doesn't prevent the agents of 536 from trying to kill her.

A reclusive, terminally ill billionaire hires Laura to research the possibility of the panacea. The billionaire's own bodyguard, Rick Hayden, a mercenary who isn't who he pretends to be, has to keep her alive as they race to find the legendary panacea before the agents of 536 can destroy it.

Slightly above average story

A better narrator would have helped. Good idea, well written, but entirely predictable. The book may be better read than listened to, as Hillary Huber can not do male voices, and her female lead was whiny.

Good story

Interesting, kept my attention. A little far fetched and predictable but still a book I would recommend.

Dont get this one!

Avoid the kudos of other listeners. This book is unfocused and steeped in religion with rather nasty characters.
