“Eternal Sonata is an exhilarating, must-read thriller, set at the combustive intersection of technology and geopolitics.

—Fred Kempe, New York Times best-selling author  

 

In 2025 America, it’s hardly news when a renowned octogenarian scientist dying of cancer disappears from a local hospice, but when Kansas City Star reporter Rich Azadian begins to dig, he discovers that other elderly scientists around the world have also vanished recently—all terminally ill and receiving the same experimental treatment from a global health company. His investigation leads him to the reclusive Noam Heller, a brilliant researcher exploring new technologies to reverse-age cancer and other cells. Using revolutionary stem cell treatments and snippets of DNA from rare, immortal Arctic jellyfish, his breakthrough promises the genetic equivalent of the fountain of youth.  
But when Heller is murdered and his lab destroyed, Rich and his girlfriend Antonia become targets themselves. His only hope is to mobilize his network of brilliant misfits and infiltrate the vast and lethal race—among cutthroat corporations, national intelligence services, rogue scientists, and a mysterious international organization—to control the new technologies and perhaps the secret of life itself. Eternal Sonata is a suspenseful, science-based literary thriller that poses the compelling philosophical question about how far we can and should go in wild pursuit of immortality.
