Cancer. Undetected, it relentlessly devours its host until there is nothing left. Andrew Acheson’s grandfather has been searching for a cure since a rare blood born pathogen claimed the life of his beloved wife.
Family. If damaged, it can be the breeding ground for social disease. Greed infected the Acheson clan long ago. David Acheson, the patriarch, has been missing for over a year and is presumed to be dead. Murdered? Kidnapped? The FBI has no leads. David’s heirs can’t wait to get their filthy fingers on his pharmaceutical empire.
Discovery. If misunderstood, it has the power to destroy. Andrew desires the success and love that have painfully eluded him. Without his grandfather’s guidance, he may never find it. Suddenly thrust into the center of a conflict with historic consequences, Andrew might be able to survive if he can overcome his flaws, both inherited and self-inflicted. But first, he must find his grandfather and deal with David’s most dangerous invention yet: time travel.
Husky is a lawyer, poet, musician, chemist, and writer from the Philadelphia area. His high school literature class blew up his brain, exposing a love for story telling. He’s circling back now. He can’t argue in court like Mitch McDeer, drop rhymes like Mother Goose, rock like Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, or leverage his skills in the lab like Walter White, but he can write better than Kilgore Trout. Husky is a lover of ideas, progressive thoughts, and mankind.
David Acheson is trying to find a cure for cancer. He has created a pharmaceutical empire with his research. While on his hunt for a cure, David disappears. Now his greedy family is napping at the bit to get their hands on Andrew’s money. In the middle of all of this is Andrew, David’s grandson. He is trying to find his place and is thrust into a position that he has to grow up fast to run. But when he finds out what happens to David, will Andrew be able to become that man that he needs to be.
It’s hard to give some detail away without ruining the plot. This in an interesting book, filled with quick chapter that have a lot going on in them. I understood what David’s drive was and everything that he discovers. But I have to say that I really liked watching Andrew grow up and into a tough position. The rest of the Acheson family was just horrible. Talk about greedy and dysfunctional.
I really liked this book. It was easy to get into. It’s amazing the lengths at which people go to get some money. This is a great read and I recommend checking it out.
I received this book for free from Sage Blog Tour’s in exchange for an honest review.
