Back Cover: The stunning starlet Greta Darling, who looked 22 but was really 89, has suddenly died. Of natural causes. Desperate to assure their billions of clients that the Miracle Treatment really does work, company executives call in private investigator Rick Macey. Macey's job is to find out what really happened to Greta Darling-or, failing that, to simply come up with some other explanation for how she died. Macey is a war veteran with very special abilities, and his own reasons for taking this case.

REVIEW: I loved the cover of this book so much I wanted to read what was inside, so I signed up to received a review copy of this book. What a fun, wonderful and surprisingly wild action adventure, thrill ride I found inside. I didn’t expect to find a story with heart, soul and something to think about.

General Rick Macy with the Department of Civil Defense and Intelligence (CDI) office, is the best of the best in his field, that is why he’s called in to work on this unusual case. Someone has died of natural causes but the CEO of Miracle Treatment, Sheila, thinks otherwise. The victim Greta Darling had been taking Miracle Treatments to live forever. Death wasn’t a possibility. There had to be fowl play. Sheila will pay any price to get to the bottom of this murder. They both will pay more than then they realized.

The character Macy reminds me of John McClaine, played by Bruce Willis in the Die Hard movies. The back drop of this movie reminds me of a futuristic space drama. He’s one cop you don’t want to mess with, but want him on your side.

This was a fun and exciting cyber adventure you’ll want to take. The author brings up some interesting issues this community and the CEO of Miracle Treatment have to deal with. It leads them to consider there is a God that wants a personal relationship with all mankind. Here’s a sneak peek:

“Despite what the rest of the world does, our duty is to remain faithful as an example to others. Don’t you think God could make everyone obey Him? So, why doesn’t He? I’ll tell you why. Because God doesn’t want forced obedience. God wants love, and love involves a choice. Every human being needs to choose for himself.”

The imagery in this book reminded me of I Robot with its crazy car chases and robots with all the cyber fighting, new fangled gadgets and technology. With an access code you could enter someone’s mind and talk to each other virtually...very cool! I’d read this book again!
