“Spencer’s recent addition to the Cartwright Series is loaded with unexpected twists and turns and edge of your seat suspense. It will keep you guessing to the last page.”
In his latest case, James Cartwright, a Detroit ex-cop, turned private eye, sets out to prove the innocence of a seventeen-year-old girl named, Alice. She’s suspected of murdering her grandfather, Professor Carmichael. However, the murder turns out to be anything but straightforward. Carmichael, a leading genetic scientist, has a dark past, dating back to the American and German Eugenics programs.
With the help of his new partner, Jason Bourne, Cartwright quickly uncovers the murderer——a nurse hired to care for Carmichael who’s been suffering from Alzheimer’s. But the case doesn’t sit right with Cartwright. There’s no clear motive. He’s also curious about a scrap of paper found at the murder scene, possibly torn from one of the professor’s scientific papers.
Cartwright quickly realizes that this is not a simple case of murder. Sinister forces are at work looking to take control of a formula that has the potential to redefine humanity.
