What Lies Beneath?
When neuroscientist John A. Novarro was separated from his past and given a new identity as Johnny Denovo, the Denovo name quickly sent a chill through the world of high-stakes criminals.
And while they try to adapt, he keeps picking apart their primal signals - the metaphors that betray them.
In this, his second published case, Johnny's hired by a bio-tech mogul facing a bizarre form of blackmail and a disruptive pattern of corporate espionage. Within hours, Johnny's drawn into a mystifying mirrorscape of secrets and half-truths. He soon discovers a cabal exploiting a venerable Boston landmark as part of an even more sinister plot. Running out of time and facing a certain threat, Johnny must use his unique abilities to untangle truth from fiction and discern friend from foe - even as his strength wanes, his options collapse, and his adversaries rush to complete their plans.
Will his mind and muscle endure to the end? Or will he become a forgotten footnote to a devious plot with timeless roots?
