Once they were friends. Now two scientists race—one to save mankind, one to destroy it.  Nanotechnology made Eva Rozen the world’s wealthiest woman. Rage made her the deadliest. Marta Cruz alone can stand between Eva and the death of millions. But will a crippling illness stop Marta first? 

The book is complete. I need your help to publish. I've hired structural, line and copy editors. Interior and cover designers. So, the product will be very high quality--a pleasure to hold and to read. Want proof?

  • “A work of descriptive art, with a sense of futuristic realism.  I was riveted, page after wonderful page…” -Thomas M. Cirignano, Author of 67 Cents: Creation of a Killer.
  • “…Marvelous characters in a thrilling union of art and science…Harry Steinman rips today’s discoveries from the laboratory and weaves a spell-binding tale of the promise—and peril—of this emerging science. –L. R. Drennan-Harris, Ph.D. Analytical Chemist

    Harry Steinman introduces the brilliant but psychotic Eva Rozen, a Boston scientist tormented by her past and present. Steinman reveals mystery and madness with detail that propels the reader through an emotion-laden thriller, revealing surprises at every turn."-- -- Deborah Swiss, The Tin Ticket: The Heroic Journey of Australia’s Convict Women
