What happens when a radical technology ushers in an ominous future? Governments and corporations will kill to control it. So murder and abduction are just the beginning.
When a clandestine research lab disposes of its test subject and kidnaps a U.S. Senator to protect its secrets, those events trigger a federal investigation. The covert program requires the services of Thomas Parker, a Princeton University professor and cutting-edge neurologist, to deliver its breakthrough achievement. And FBI Special Agent Kate Morgan needs Parker to help her infiltrate the secret lab.
What they don't know is that the senator's abduction was orchestrated by Stewart Richards, who is obsessed with creating The Frontier--neurological singularity. To Richards, no sacrifice is too great for a cause that brings him world-wide recognition and unravels the mysteries of the mind.
Together, Parker and Morgan are faced with the dilemma of advancing the revolutionary technology in order to solve the senator's abduction, save The Singularity Witness and others, and survive.
The Singularity Witness plays off "what if" scenarios facing current medical and biological research endeavors. Some of these initiatives may fundamentally change social and geopolitical landscapes forever.
