What would you do for a drug that enables you to live 250 years? Though tripled lifespans sound fantastic, what would extra-long life mean for a planet already headed for disastrous overpopulation—10 billion people by the year 2050 according to the United Nations? In the two-book PROGENETER set, this is the scenario presented, except that a new medical discovery means the number of humans will grow even faster if people can buy longevity, and they would, despite downsides: starvation, pollution, economic and social strife of unimaginable proportions. Ignoring the negatives, the head of a multinational drug company wants the drug for the money, for the power, and for personal reasons of a more sinister nature. And he will go to any length to secure it. PROGENETER is an action-packed 212,000-word, two-book adventure saga that spans centuries, from Mayan monks who escaped the expedition of Spanish conquistador Francisco de Coronado to current day. The small tribe lived in isolation in the bowels of the Grand Canyon, protecting the secret life extension formula and the mysterious crystal skull that enables the needed molecular realignment. After learning that the tribe will not give up the mysterious formula, the amoral CEO sends mercenaries to get it—even by force. Present-day Mayan warrior monks, the Bacob, seek to evade the contract mercenaries, but a showdown is unavoidable and ancient martial arts are pitted against modern-day weaponry. Central characters are Mekel Mak'ina, leader of the mysterious Mavas u Ch'an and guardian of secrets intended to help the human race but that now threaten everyone, perhaps everything, on earth. And Dr. Helen Murray, the drug company researcher who travels to the land of the Mavas u Ch'an to persuade the Mayans to share the most incredible medical miracle of all time. In an oasis a mile below the Canyon rim, she comes to discover, but she finds much more than she could ever have imagined.
