It is 1989, and a key government scientist has gone missing. He has made a genetic discovery that turns Darwinism on its ear and could pose a threat to world security should it land in the wrong hands.

Personal injury lawyer, David Miller, is the FBI’s unlikely recruit to help solve the perplexing disappearance.  Why David?  In 1966, when he was just sixteen, David fell hopelessly in love with a girl whose father is the FBI’s prime suspect, cult leader, Philip Montgomery.

The trail leading to Montgomery has grown cold, and now the future of the case depends on what David can recall of the mysterious girl he never saw again and her bizarre family.

But as David delves into a sea of old memories, revisiting people and places left behind long ago, a new riddle will confront him – one involving the JFK assassination and his former best friend Benny Friedman’s conviction that Lee Harvey Oswald wasn’t acting alone.



Settling in for a routine day at the office in 1989, high school memories are the furthest thing from David Miller’s mind. But when an unexpected phone call interrupts the personal injury lawyer’s midafternoon slump, he is surprised to hear from Michael Eisenberg–a former debate partner who went on to become the US Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois.

But Michael isn’t just calling to chat. He’s working with the FBI on a high-stakes case: investigating the disappearance of a revolutionary government scientist–one whose bio-evolutionary research could turn Darwinism on its ear, and pose a threat to national security.

The main suspect? Cult leader Philip Montgomery, who happens to have a strong connection to David’s past.

If David hopes to help crack the case, the attorney has to delve into a sea of old memories, revisiting people and places left behind long ago. One such person is former best friend Benny Friedman, who has clearly gone off the deep end. Obsessed with the JFK assassination, he insists he has evidence that Oswald wasn’t acting alone.

But as David’s old memories continue to surface, a startling deception comes to light–uncovering the truth in a most unexpected way.
