The Methuselah Man

"God, I never knew a man who wanted so much to be dead…

or deserved it more."

President Treem, an idealist young president, is determined to change the nuclear face of the world by unilateral example. Vice President George S. Austin, an old-school war hero, is convinced these new policies are both naive and dangerous. Secretary of State Crandall Forsyth, fearing the Vice President is about to take drastic steps to subvert the President’s nuclear agenda, and uncertain how deep the Vice President’s conspiracy runs, turns to the one man outside of the government he can trust—his long-time friend Wes Franklin, a member of an independent international intelligence group known as THE ANKH NETWORK.

Into this central plot steps Jared Kennan Cain, a man with a perfect genetic structure who appears to be immortal. Cain has escaped from The Genetic Discovery Corporation, a Palo Alto-based secret government organization tasked with developing biological weapons systems. Two years of experiments to study Cain’s unique system have been documented in a file labeled THE METHUSELAH MAN. Could he be the ultimate weapon?

A Great Read

...a wonderfully masterminded tale of…Jared Kennan Cain...interleaves the single-minded machinations of high ranking political brokers against those wanting to do `the right thing' for mankind. Immortality and nuclear irresponsibility…leads us on chases and, at last, culminates in an extremely satisfying ending…A great read for anyone interested in thrillers. I'll definitely be re-reading it again….

NickP (Tucson, AZ)

This author has a line on the human senses

    Kathryn (Ingram, TX)

Fantastic Novel!

...a magic carpet that swoops down and carries one away on a grand journey…a macabre dance of international intrigue on a cross-European continental railway…[that] honors the great classic cinema railway scenes of the past, such as those found in North By Northwest, From Russia with Love, and The Silver Streak...O'Henry himself would be proud to call this ironic and unexpected ending his own.
