Overview
Set in Colorado, Costa Rica, and on the fringe of heaven, Brain Waves is an inspirational medical suspense story that begins as a tale of revenge and intrigue but turns into one of forgiveness. The author weaves neuroscience, computer technology and philosophy into a compelling story about a man who refuses to enter heaven too soon. That man, former Navy SEAL turned inventor Mark Farrell, has long been determined to leave his own mark on the world. He winds up leaving a greater legacy than he could have ever imagined.
Description
Former Navy SEAL turned inventor Mark Farrell is determined to make a lasting impact on the world. Named after the last good Roman emperor, Caesar Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus, Mark's latest invention, a “smart” EEG machine called EEG-Xpert, may fulfill his dream, but inexplicable delays have plagued the project. An overbearing venture capitalist, suspected sabotage, a troubled marriage and an alluring VP of Software greatly complicate the pursuit of his goal. When an accident leaves Mark stranded on the fringe of heaven—a place he didn’t think even existed—he enlists heavenly help to devise a treatment plan to save his life. In violation of heaven’s strict no-communication-with-earth rule, he relies on a secret capability that he built into Xpert to send the first e-mails from heaven. Unfortunately, the only recipient of his messages would rather see him dead. Worse yet, he may literally have hell to pay when his forbidden communication scheme is detected. Set in Colorado, Costa Rica and across the wall from heaven proper, Brain Waves is a medical suspense novel that begins as a tale of revenge and intrigue but turns into one of forgiveness. The author weaves neuroscience, computer technology, physics and philosophy into a compelling story about a man who refuses to enter heaven too soon. Ultimately, Mark’s legacy proves more momentous than he could have ever imagined.
