In this engaging thriller, David Perry demonstrates his skill as a master storyteller taking us behind the counter into the world of pharmacy. The Cyclops Conspiracy accelerates through a tense terrain toward an incredible finish.
As the story opens, pharmacist Jason Rodgers stands nose-to-nose with his tortured past following the untimely death of his mentor, Thomas Pettigrew. He is reunited with his former lover and Pettigrew’s daughter, Christine. Troubled by the way Pettigrew died and Christine’s unsettling statements about her father, Rodgers is spurred to investigate.
Their reunion sparks a cascade of apparently unrelated but fateful events for Rodgers…an incredible job offer working for a mysterious millionaire…the lustful pursuits of a sexy physician…and the criminal activities of a crooked pharmacist.
Christine and Jason forge a fragile alliance as they dance around their painful past. Teaming with Jason’s brother and ex-marine, Peter, and a sleazy private eye named Waterhouse, the quartet uncovers hastily deposited clues left by the dead pharmacist peeling back the veil on corrupt insurance billing and the inescapable conclusion regarding Thomas’s demise.
But as Rodgers delves deeper, the realization that they are dealing with more than a case of fraud explodes to the surface. Expertly manipulated, he and his cohorts have been sucked into a dark and dangerous intrigue with terrifying world-wide implications—and placed squarely in the crosshairs of a network of professional assassins.
Jason unearths the real reason behind his mentor’s murder and the ultimate cataclysmic purpose it intended to conceal. With the clock ticking down to a nail-biting climax, he races to stop the plot and expose the conspirators before he becomes their next victim…and before American history is irrevocably altered.
