Product Description

Product Description

When Jacob Hanley discovers that the withered old man who died in his arms is really only thirty years old, the mystery of how he aged so quickly draws Jacob into the heart of a sinister plot.

The founder of Symbios Innovations, Hans Streisser, has dedicated his life to the relentless pursuit of knowledge. Known by his followers as the Great Elder, he walks a blurred line between genius and madness and has graced his subjects with the most extraordinary discovery in the history of science. But he'll do anything to keep his discovery a secret, including the use of murderous henchmen like Vic Cappetti.

As Jacob's curiosity lures him deeper into a dangerous web, he learns the truth behind the Great Elder's plans and finds himself caught in a life or death struggle that could very well lead to the extinction of mankind.

"Cavignano brings wonderful characterization of people and places to his lightning-paced fantasy thriller ... Boston neighborhoods are impeccably portrayed ... A gleefully hard-boiled urban fantasy that lights up Boston's mean streets." - Kirkus Reviews

"A wildly entertaining book ... [that] delivers a deliciously compelling villain ... [and] plot twists until the very end."

About the Author

A Boston native and writer since high school, Derik now resides in Florida with his wife and two children.

HASH(0xa2b52e58) out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down June 11 2015
By Laurie A. Brown - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a work of urban fantasy/science fiction that never stops moving. Widowed accountant Jacob Hanley is about to eat lunch at a restaurant when an old man collapses in front of him, warning him about Symbios and the Great Elder, and dies. When the EMTs take the body away, Jacob discovers that the old man left a business card on the table. Then the coroner finds that the old man was only 30 years old. Jacob not only becomes curious but feels the man’s family should be notified.. and the police can’t find anyone home to tell. When Jacob makes a trip to the man’s house himself, he finds himself trapped by two thugs who are ransacking the house. Suddenly his world is upended, in an adventure that will involve his policeman brother, a dirty policeman, an accountant at Symbios, a PI with mixed allegiances, and the Great Elder, a genius who may have gone too far. The whole world is at stake by the end.

This story really held my interest. The characters are well done (especially Frank, the PI), the threat is complex and seemingly unstoppable, the action nonstop. My only beef with the story is the ending- there are a whole lot of loose ends. This is obviously the first book in a series- but you’re not told that until you get to the end and suddenly there is a big lack of explanations. I certainly want to read the sequel, but was annoyed to be left dangling abruptly.

HASH(0xa2b52eac) out of 5 stars a bit disappointing June 3 2015
By dani - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
On the whole I enjoyed the book. The characters were well developed. The pace varied , but for the most part events unfolded rather quickly. The reason I graded it three has to do with a pet peeve of mine. I prefer books in which the author provides complete closure for the reader.
I don't want a cute signal that shouts," Look for a sequel." The "glint" in the eyes of one of the revived was a bit much. Once we knew that all survived the so-called bio attack, it was clear they weren't the same people and the next book would solve everything. I believe this is called a cliff hanger which I find so annoying!.

HASH(0xa2ef31a4) out of 5 stars ... both of Cavignano's books and while the other is great, this is my favorite March 20 2015
By Chris Coxen - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I've read both of Cavignano's books and while the other is great, this is my favorite. I love good sci-fi and this one really delivers. It reads like a fantastic film which is why I would love to see a cinematic representation of this awesome story some day. And just like Colony of the Lost, this book never has any lulls and offers well-developed characters you genuinely want to follow.

HASH(0xa2b52f6c) out of 5 stars Captivating June 5 2015

This book has it all, sci-fi, suspense, heart break, loss and renewal. This is an exciting read with characters so well defined that they jump off the pages.
