Inhaltsangabe: Based on actual, cutting-edge scientific research, Skeptic is the kind of thriller that will have you thinking, "It could happen." To Dr. Mike Ballantine, truth can only be found in science and in concrete research. But when his best friend is killed in what looks like an assassination, Ballantine begins to question his beliefs, his knowledge, and even his sanity. Things soon turn nightmarish as Ballantine begins to have strange hallucinations that seem to be fragments of his friend's life. Then the research in his lab uncovers a shocking but undeniable truth: ghosts can, and do, exist. With the help of a brilliant CIA agent, Amber Chen, Ballantine's quest to stop his friend's murderers from obtaining the critical elements of his research pits him against a ruthless genius in a race against time. Skeptic will make you believe.
Vom Verlag: " Skeptic is a riveting adventure story, brilliantly told. The suspense is relentless and builds to an ending that leaves you astounded and wondering why someone didn't think of this before. Holden Scott is one of a group of new emerging young writers, and the best of the lot. He is the successor to Michael Crichton... Skeptic should be required reading for believers and skeptics alike." --Jack McConnell, M.D., cofounder of the Institute for Genomic Research
"A truly original thriller--part medical, part paranormal, and totally gripping. Holden Scott has taken a fascinating premise, put it together with a super plot, and added intriguing characters to craft an amazing plot." --Nelson DeMille
"Skeptic is riveting and the concept of a molecular biological basis for ghosts was most intriguing. I found myself thinking about the notion repeatedly and sending up some trial balloons with my colleagues at the medical center." --Herbert Y. Kressel, M.D., President and CEO of Beth Israel, Deaconess Hospital
"Gripping! Skeptic grabbed me in the first chapter and pulled me into the fascinating story line. The medical/science premise was ingenious and based on enough scientific fact for me to accept the story line and enjoy the ride." --Peter G. Traber, M.D., Chair, Department of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania Health System, and Frank Wister Thomas Professor of Medicine
"Ingenious, fascinating, and thoroughly original, Skeptic boldly raises the bar for the medical thriller. Holden Scott ventures into exciting new territory." --F. Paul Wilson
"Skeptic is a riveting adventure story in the best tradition of popular medical thrillers. Scott mines current biomedical research for highly imaginative scenarios, while his sound comprehension of the motives and workings of biomedical research institutions gives the narrative an aura of plausibility." --Thomas P. Stossel, M.D., Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, and Director of the Experimental Medicine Division, Brigham and Women's Hospital
"Skeptic is one of the cleverest and most exciting medical stories that I have read since Michael Crichton first appeared on the scene." --Leonard Jarett, M.D., Simon Flexner Professor and Chair, University of Pennsylvania Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
