The Crucible of Steele is a fast-paced techno-thriller filled with unexpected twists, ethical entanglements and provocative science.
To secure the earth for the perfect few, they need to rid the world of the imperfect many. Only one of their own can stop them ….
In a remote region of Honduras, Dr. Gene Young fears for his young patients. The extremely high teen birth rate has inexplicably dropped to zero, and he can’t find anyone who will listen. Only Frank Anderson, a discredited geneticist and pioneer of in-vitro fertilization, believes him.
In Atlanta, a successful technology consultant, Georgia Steele, makes a living protecting her client’s data, systems, and intellectual assets, while discreetly exposing embezzlement and corporate espionage. A multi-racial orphan in search of blood relatives, her keen ability to uncover hidden information has failed in her personal life.
Georgia’s luck changes after a brief encounter with a near-twin leads her to track down her estranged and paranoid godfather, Frank Anderson. He tells Georgia that she is the product of a 150-year plan to create a superior race. Furthermore, her progenitors are now trying to rid the world of “average” humans.
Driven to discover the truth, Georgia travels to Honduras to find Dr. Young. There she is faced with a dilemma – join her true family or to try to stop them before thousands of innocent people are killed and humanity forever changed.
