It’s an ordinary day, a Wednesday in October, as a drama unfolds in one corner of the UCLA campus. A five-year old boy is caught up in events swirling around his father, Simon Kyser PhD. Bribery and corruption emerges, followed by attempted murder, mayhem, and kidnapping. It is a story of scientific espionage gone awry.
Grace Tooley MD finds young Simon drenched and alone in the middle of a downpour in a parking lot at UCLA. She in concert with her colleague Wesley Brown MD, head of the psychiatric institute and Anton Kristov PhD, head of the biotech department work to unravel what fast becomes a web of deceit.
The story is told in seven days.
