Woven into another fast-paced, topical mystery, the second installment of this new thought fiction series explores overcoming fear in the pursuit of purpose and the interconnectedness of all things in nature.
This 2022 International Book Awards Finalist and sequel to The Recruiter unveils more of the universal trial facing humanity in an “intricate, engaging” way that goes “above and beyond” (Reader Views).
Since her encounter with Ori years ago, Jessica has continued her mission to print the truth that the world needs to hear. This pursuit has led her to meet with a source, Zach Carver, a leading mind at the Singularity Group. The meeting goes awry, and Jessica awakens to find that she has a gap in time and memory and that Zach is now missing.
Jessica sets out to understand what happened, for Zach’s sake and her own. To her surprise, Ori reappears to help her. His solution involves a promising young recruit, Malik, whose research could be the key to recovering Zach. However, the forces they are up against have proven they will go to great lengths to remove any obstacle in their path.
Jessica soon realizes there is more at stake than just her recent memories. Somehow the fates of Zach and Malik are intertwined with her own. What comes next could tip the scales in the fight to overcome a virus impacting the world.
This journey toward a better future strikes an intriguing balance of mystery and wonder and “will have readers keen to see what [Alexander Mukte] has in store next” (The BookLife Prize).
