Aldo is a mystery / thriller / love story in which a brilliant and dangerous ideologue attempts to eliminate a university's genetics institute by holding the university's president hostage.
On the same day that Isabel Canto, associate director of Pembrook Atlantic University's Institute for Genome Modification, discovers she is pregnant with IGM post-doc Frank Marks's baby, Pembrook Atlantic University's president Mary Ellen Mackin receives a letter from "Aldo" threatening harm if she does not dissolve the institute and fire its director. Isabel recommends that Mackin refuse, and not allow a terrorist to dictate what her faculty and students can research and discover -- setting off a chain of events that will change many lives forever, including her own.
A Note From the Publisher
"Craige tells a fascinating story in ALDO -- an intriguing and complex mystery, marvellous characters, some futuristic science, and a good deal of suspense make this a page turner you won't want to put down."
-- Taylor Jones, The Review Team of Taylor Jones & Regan Murphy
"ALDO by Betty Jean Craige is the story of a domestic terrorist who believes that violence and threats are the best way to settle ideological differences [...] ALDO is both unique and refreshing in its voice, and in the way Craige has structured the story in the form of a novel in a novel, so to speak. Blending mystery and intrigue with superb character development, action, suspense, and a hint of romance, ALDO will keep you on your toes all the way through. I couldn't put it down."
