9781482091755: The Gemini Conspiracy

The Gemini Conspiracy explores the unbridled exploitation of the apparatuses of power in which predator becomes prey within concentric spheres of Machiavellian manipulation. It is also a story of great sacrifice and the power of dogged determination in the face of the unthinkable consequences of failure. The young protagonists must discover and defeat invisible puppeteers in a desperate race to save two kidnapped boys--and possibly a nation. Glen Cannon and his bewitching associate, Ginny Blaine, fall into inescapable intrigue and mortal danger as the underpinnings of the Gemini discovery are realized--and snapped up by unseen forces intending far different purposes.

During an MRI after a Pee-Wee soccer head injury, a savvy pair of Duke University physicians witness what is to them the unfathomable. Yet they cannot deny that the child in their machine has briefly assumed the sentience of his identical twin, waiting with their mother in another room. A government technology futurist spots the doctor's publication of what they describe as "induced telesthesia." Intending to exploit what becomes known as the "Gemini Effect," NASA launches a small research project as an element of its paramount program, the Deep Space Initiative.

But can Gemini be controlled? Can it be made to operate between any two individuals?

Mel Clarkson, the President Russell E. Davis' (RED) science adviser, alerts his boss to certain unintended consequences to the Gemini effort, however promising might be the payoff from the harmless application NASA is pursuing. RED places Gemini under the watchful eye of his old friend, CIA Director Gen. Hume Stiller. Worried, RED confides to his wife the calamity that Gemini might portend--should it slip into hostile hands. He is unaware that his father-in-law is ensconced within a secretive organization that will soon be betting on a dazzling new prize, one that might become the ultimate tool for long distance, risk free espionage.

Fresh out of his Stanford PhD program, Glen Cannon and his bride arrive in Germany buoyed on the tides of hope and expectation. Yet, as her husband builds his career, Ellen languishes, seeing little of him and unmoved by the charms of medieval Heidelberg. Glen's brilliant research attracts the scrutiny of a shadowy European-based cartel. It learns that within Cannon's grasp lie two of the ultimate keys needed to transform Gemini from a mere academic curiosity into something practical--something of immense value.

Kyle Lynn, master cartel operative, inveigles ambitious CIA confederate Norman Cotter to subvert NASA's Gemini project, granting him operational control of his own private black program. Having kidnapped the twins and placed them inside a hidden facility, Lynn is set to tackle the final and seemingly impossible phase of his plan--at whatever the cost.

Lynn's neurologist infuses the injured boy's corpus callosum with a DNA cocktail manufactured from a tiny sample collected from a donor whose mind the team seeks to invade. But the child suffers massive seizures and violent internal conflicts within Lynn's covert unit threaten to derail his meticulous planning. In Europe, the cartel hedges its bets and attempts the "twinning process" at another German lab--one with an approach even more aggressive than Lynn's.

Cartel fingers are poised to touch the levers of French economic power. It intends to "consult" the Governor of the Banque de France, the architect of an ingenious scheme to shore up the flagging French economy. Absolute inside foreknowledge will be the cartel's to exploit. The governor's "Gemini twin," cartel economist, Paul Levine, is set to gain unfettered access to the mind of his silent partner. Convinced there are only minor obstacles left to confront, the cartel's barons become jubilant. They are premature. Still, the steely cartel czar abhors loose ends. Gemini must be his and his alone.

And no one is indispensable.

From the Author:

From Paris, unseen hands usurp and manipulate a monumental scientific discovery while in America a shadowy cartel is pursued by two young professionals locked in mortal intrigue as they desperately seek to rescue two small children who are the wellspring from which flows a new and awesome power -- a force that is poised to control the economies and fortunes of the entire world.

From the Inside Flap:

THE GEMINI CONSPIRACY 
Rated ★★★★ by Red City Review 
Sex, science, and sabotage abound in this political thriller from newcomer Keith Reiss. After a routine MRI scan turns up a previously unobserved scientific anomaly between a young pair of twins, NASA quietly launches a small research project to more closely examine the "Gemini Effect" and apply its findings to future space programs.  But soon the boys are whisked away by NASA's more nefarious enemies, a group of turncoats and terrorists who intend to use the boys for a far darker purpose.  It becomes the task of Glen Cannon, an adulterous but fiercely intelligent genetics expert, and his tempting young assistant, Ginny Blaine, to follow the kidnapped boys' trail and snuff out the growing terrorist threat before Glen's enemies are able to enact their terrible scheme.  Along the way, Glen and Ginny are waylaid by a series of shocking discoveries and betrayals that threaten to end their very lives.
Reiss has crafted a well-told page-turner in the tradition of classic American spy stories. The Gemini Conspiracy boasts an impressive array of characters - scientists, spies, politicians - who all lend their voices to an interesting, fast-paced story that starts off simple but soon explodes into kaleidoscopic chaos after the full effects of the Gemini Effect are uncovered.  The novel centers on the thought-provoking concept of telepathy and explores the possible applications of such a significant scientific breakthrough in a polished and well-structured manner.  Reiss does an excellent job of juggling the novel's focus between each of his characters, which serves to keep the action fresh and the conflict compelling.  What's more, the chemistry between Reiss' protagonists is so palpable that it adds an extra layer of taut and torrid emotion to an already thrilling tale.  Though the conflict is admittedly a bit difficult to follow at times - and a few of the characters' motivations might have been explained more thoroughly - The Gemini Conspiracy will more than satisfy any reader's taste for intelligent speculative fiction. - Red City Review
