Description

A cryptic note sends former FBI agent turned wealth advisor David Blum on a journey to discover the truth behind his father’s recent death. All clues point to Otto Feldmann, a world-renowned professor of genetics.

Further digging leads Blum to Kay Westfield, a charming bank executive who once witnessed a bizarre explosion on Feldmann’s experimental farm. As Blum and Westfield work together to unravel the labyrinth of funding behind the professor’s research center, a picture emerges of a monstrous plot by a shadowy international think tank to infect millions of people. But then, in a final showdown deep below the professor’s nightmare greenhouse, Blum discovers that the actual plan is infinitely more profound than anything he had imagined, forcing him to confront his own sense of morality. 

Meanwhile, Feldmann’s assistant, a math prodigy with past ties to a violent, white-supremacist movement is busy optimizing the virus’s distribution—fulfilling the Pangaea Solution.

An interesting plot that drops hints and clues along the way, leading to an 'obvious conclusion', and then the actual plot is revealed, and I did not see it coming! The main protagonist is an ex-FBI agent working in finance who returns to the town he grew up in to sort out the affairs of his father who died suddenly. He is presented with a note asking him to a meeting to find out what really happened to his father. From there, David, the lead character, follows the clues and it leads to a showdown. The ending sets up the possibility for a series, so I will be looking for that sequel.

I really enjoyed this. It was kind of different to the usual thriller. The chief protagonist was like an investment banker although he had been in the FBI (financial crimes he would point out). I thought it was going to be sci-fi and there may have been a tiny bit of that but mainly it was a thriller with conspiracy theories thrown in. It might have started at a walk but the pace slowly and inexorably increased until it got really exciting towards the end.

David Bund is back home for his father's funeral, His father died suddenly and unexpectedly from an apparent heart attack. At home after the funeral a young man thrusts an envelope into his hand and disappears. Inside is request to meet Hans Meier the following night. He has information about David's father's death, the situation is dire and you can't trust the police. Intrigued David arrives at the meeting place but no Hans. He calls in to Hans's home the next day but finds that it has been ransacked. He wonders what the intruders were after. He later finds a mysterious list hidden in Hans's bathroom. Soon David is on a very strange and very dangerous path of discovery. He is up against a very well resourced and dangerous group. Fortunately he meets allies along the way but they realise that the stakes are higher than they could have imagined. The fate of much of humanity is at risk. Very melodramatic I know, but it was so much fun and the good guys were just so relatable. The ending sets it up for a sequel although be reassured its not a cliffhanger. I would certainly be interested in reading any sequel.
