IN SEARCH OF FATE by Anthony De Benedict
Adam Questor is a vice president of Genetic Research & Development at Global Pharmaceuticals. Adam finds himself in a battle with his conscience regarding a decision thrust upon him by the apparent, but suspicious suicide of a colleague, John Smite. Adam must decide whether to make his company the sole treatment proprietor of his now dead colleague’s life-changing genetic breakthrough or to make this new discovery more broadly available for the benefit of all. Anguishing over this decision and the death of his colleague, he seeks refuge in a monastery. The company’s CEO, Ralph Edwards, suspects Adam has knowledge of this breakthrough and fears his altruistic bent. With the help of a brilliant psychiatrist, Evelyn Wyman, Edwards hopes to find out what Adam knows under the guise of her support and counsel. Is Evelyn who and what she appears to be? Did John Smite commit suicide or is murder a possibility? What is the discovery?
