9781504343527: “Code Centaurus”

When Colin Grier is ordered by a covert office in the World Health Organization to investigate a bizarre disease outbreak in New Guinea, he is introduced to a fantastic world of possibilities that he never dreamed existed. While in New Guinea, he meets a beautiful, paralyzed woman called Margo, who is travelling with her father aboard a privately funded research ship in search of an ancient Khmer temple. While onboard, Margo and Colin become fast friends, and Margo eventually discloses that she has psychic abilities. Her visions eventually lead Colin to some twelfthcentury Khmer temple ruins, where they discover part of an ancient telescope. Although the find is a major victory for anthropology, the group also discovers the source of the disease outbreak within the temple, and Colin is forced to choose between stopping the disease at its source and curing Margo's paralysis. But with an impending attack from the World Health Organization's Swat team, Colin must decide: will he save the woman he loves or choose to stop the spreading diseaseand possibly change the course of history.

From the Author:

Just a note from me about the genesis of Code Centaurus. I always had been fascinated with Sci Fi novels that were well researched, and dealt with real science.  One of my idols was Michael Crichton.    I can remember reading that novel until after 4 AM, knowing I had to get up for work. I taught Chemistry and Biology at the time, and 4 cups of coffee got me through my classes (although I wasn't as sharp at the chalkboard as I would have liked). ( Sorry....that Novel  was Andromeda Strain) 99% of the book was written in the local library, where I had stacks of reference books piled on my desk. ( I wrote the book longhand with a Mont Blanc fountain pen). Since I had lesson plans and papers to correct, I could only write in the Summer.But after many drafts Code Centaurus was finally done. (I could talk about the writing process endlessly- You can contact me at my website francislentz.com/.....Would love to hear what YOU think! Best, Frank L

From the Inside Flap:

Is it possible that Mankind's DNA was corrupted when it was inserted into pre-man 2 million years ago? ......and that even now, theTrue code remains hidden in the infinitude of the Cosmos? .....When Colin Grier is ordered by a clandestine office in the World Health Organization to investigate a bizzare disease outbreak in the wilds of New Guinea, he is led to a vista of possibilities he never could have imagined....Diverted to a privately funded research ship, Colin meets the beautiful but paralyzed Margo. Her visions lead Colin to a 12th century Khmer temple, and evidence of a ruined radio telescope left from ancient times....Colin must make the decision of his life--leave the disease source pouring out its horrors. or shut it down, ruining any chance Margo's paralysis might be cured.  Meanwhile at W.H.O. headquarters, Edwin Mc Clure, Colin's obsessively ambitious superior, sends a SWAT team to enforce his quarantine.   .........Combining science, adventure and suspense, Code Centaurus leads to a stunning conclusion....one that points to the possibility of Transcendence for all Mankind.
