The Savants, my first Young Adult title
The Savants - Suspense Publishing 2015
Dr. Stephen Pevnick is a behavioral scientist and advisor to the President. He has gathered the world's most prodigious savants to participate in an experiment. He wants to determine if they are able to work together as a team,a difficult challenge for these highly intelligent but socially challenged individuals. But, shortly after they arrive at his research facility in Maine, a catastrophic event occurs that threatens the Eastern Seaboard of the U.S. and a treasonous plot unfolds that may endanger freedom throughout the world. The scientific community is helpless to stop the crisis. Will The Savants be able to work together and devise a plan to save the world, or will the dark forces behind the nefarious plan prevail?
“Powered by pedal-to-the metal pacing, a seamless narrative, and subtle symbolism. Indeed, to classify this solely as YA novel does it a great disservice, as it will likely appeal to young and old readers alike. A thriller that many readers may find hard to put down.”
