Panacea

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Two secret societies vie for control of the ultimate medical miracle—Panacea—in the latest novel by New York Times bestselling author F. Paul Wilson, author of the Repairman Jack series.

Medical examiner Laura Fanning has two charred corpses and no answers. Both bear a mysterious tattoo but exhibit no known cause of death. Their only connection to one another is a string of puzzling miracle cures. Her preliminary investigation points to a cult in the possession of the fabled panacea—the substance that can cure all ills—but that's impossible.

Laura finds herself unknowingly enmeshed in an ancient conflict between the secretive keepers of the panacea and the equally secretive and far more deadly group known only as 536, a brotherhood that fervently believes God intended for humanity to suffer, not be cured. Laura doesn't believe in the panacea, but that doesn't prevent the agents of 536 from trying to kill her.

A reclusive, terminally ill billionaire hires Laura to research the possibility of the panacea. The billionaire's own body guard, Rick Hayden, a mercenary who isn't who he pretends to be, has to keep her alive as they race to find the legendary panacea before the agents of 536 can destroy it.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 27, 2016 – This suspenseful paranormal thriller from Wilson (Fear City) introduces evil CIA agent Nelson Fife and the religious extremists of the 536 Brotherhood, a monastic order whose members dedicate their lives to wiping out a miracle cure and its guardians. Dr. Laura Fanning, a New York City medical examiner and mother of a deathly ill child, stumbles on evidence of this miracle potion while conducting several routine autopsies. Her scientific mind refuses to believe in its power, but she agrees to travel practically around the world in search of this cure at the behest of an incredibly rich, terminally ill mystery man. She takes along his equally mysterious aide, Rick Hayden, as her bodyguard. Laura and Rick track the cure's origins via a series of tattoos on the guardians' corpses. Tension mounts as Nelson hacks Laura's phone and sets in motion a plan to make her unaware of the danger mounting at home, so she can lead him to the guardians of the cure. At times Wilson tries too hard to educate the reader instead of moving the story forward, but for fans of mysterious ancient sects and miraculous possibilities, it's an entertaining tale, underlined by a clear battle between good and evil.
