The Cytokine Plurality is set to launch on August 8, 2021.  You can visit the website at Reviews are coming in: 

5 Stars. An exciting, fast-paced page turner.  I love the main character, Van Eng.  She is such a role model with her spunk, tenaciousness and commitment to purpose.

I could not put it down and read it in one day! What an amazing debut novel. 

Jystad has taken seemingly unrelated threads and woven them into a fast-paced thriller that penetrates the world of greed, intrigue and espionage among scientists and investors pursuing high stakes, lucrative, but controversial, biomedical advances…advances that can save lives…. or end them.
