Jamie Freveletti's ultra-marathon running biochemist, Emma Caldridge, is back on stride and researching a strange new mineral reserve with cosmetic potential in the Caribbean when she encounters modern day voodoo, "Dead Asleep." (Harper/403 pages)
On the private Caribbean island of Terra Cay, people are falling into a strange sleep. Is this deadly sleep voodoo or a virulent pathogen?
With the help of her friend, drug enforcement agent Cameron Sumner, and the crew from the security company Darkview, Freveletti must prevent the strange sleeping sickness from becoming a global epidemic while they try to stop a group of arms dealers from trading their latest, and most dangerous, weapon yet - a gun capable of firing a bullet manufactured without metal and thus, undetectable by conventional X-ray screening methods used in airports.
Freveletti writes an exciting adventure which includes a riveting description of the dangers of scuba diving in the Bermuda triangle.
The Emma Caldridge stories, filled with mind-boggling details of biology and botany, such as the manchineel tree which spews a sap so caustic it can cause severe burns and blindness, reminds us of the enormous power of nature.
This book is set for release on October 30, 2012.
