From the publisher:
The pharmaceutical giants have a big skeleton in their closet and will fight tooth and nail to keep it there. Author Dan Travis, notorious unsolved mystery specialist, is on another book tour when a cryptic message from a desperate stranger blows his life apart. He is sucked into a silent war which hinges on an incriminating data file. Finding it is Travis’s only hope for surviving a deadly chase across America. But to find its location, Travis must discover the link between the biggest medical cover-up in history and the greatest assassination conspiracy of the twentieth century. The key lies within a secret underground of doctors sworn to an ancient oath. When the solution is the problem, which side will YOU be on? The facts behind the fiction will blow you away.
James Sheridan’s book is a fascinating look at certain scenarios existing in the world at the current time. The dialog he utilizes supports underlying beliefs that (a) the assassination of ex U.S. president John Kennedy involved an international conspiracy, not the approach that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin, and (b) the Pharmaceutical industry is rife with schemes to prevent known cures for diseases like cancer to become accredited. The industry promotes the sale of medicines that might even harm the patient in place of cures solely in the interest of making more money than a cure might bring in.
Dan Travis, an expert on several unsolved mysteries, is on a book promotion tour when a message unexpectedly received moves him into a secret war based upon a data file. He knows the person sending him the message and is also immediately galvanized into action when he is met by a lady purporting to be that man’s sister. She tells him that she is a government agent and will help him get the file and publicize it.
The action immediately accelerates with a man named Mr. Green, an agent of the U.S. government, and backed by many of his own people, begins to chase Dan and the girl now working with him. While moving forward in their search for the data file Dan learns about the reality of both the killing of John F Kennedy and the truth about big Pharma’s conspiracy to crush many cures in order to continue to rake in money. The key to the plot by the Pharmaceutical companies lies with another secret organization this time with doctors sworn to bring out the truth.
Whether Sheridan is exposing extremely high-level conspiracies or not does not detract from the sheer force of the author’s descriptions. The book quickly mesmerizes the reader and does not allow it to be put down until finished. Moreover, readers of the novel will not only be looking for future works by the author but also spending some time on the internet in attempts to ascertain the possibility or not of the conspiracies described being rooted in fact. I did spend some time searching for the possibility or not of the book is correct in its allegations but I leave my findings for readers to investigate on their own.
