Nominated by the Mystery Writers of American for Best First Novel
Julian Solo is a novel about a brilliant scientist who died, came back to life, and seeks to recreate this impossible transition again and again.
Why can’t we use death to prolong life? Julian Solo asks. Why can’t death be made to serve, instead of to obliterate? Why can’t he reach with his hands and his heart, into the abyss from which there is no return, to defy, overcome and defeat death – for the sake of the woman he loves?
Julian Solo is a man of integrity, an honorable scientist, a medical man on whom we can rely. He has given us his solemn promise that we can trust him. His purpose is to conquer death and his journey is into the void.
He wants us to come with him.
Nominated by the Mystery Writers of America for an Edgar Award, and the Libertarian Futurist Society for a Prometheus Award –Julian Solo is a book no reader will be able to put down, a book no reader will forget.
