About Charles Atkins

What would you give to cure mankind's suffering? Dr. Spencer Williams, a brilliant young researcher, is on the verge of that discovery. Haunted by the freakish suicide of his famous mother, he is driven to find a cure for the illness that ended her life. Blessed--or cursed--from birth with second sight, Spencer's personal grail is within his grasp. Through a secret mix of blood magic and genetic engineering, he has synthesized Marvan, a miraculous medicine that could leapfrog mankind to the next evolutionary phase. But Spencer has huge hurdles to clear. Getting a new drug to market takes big bucks. And how exactly is he supposed to keep Marvan's unique formula a secret? As word of his discovery leaks out, powerful players want a piece of the action. Hell, they want it all. Spencer must make the choice, does he go with the devil he knows or the devil himself?
