The Arx by Jay Allan Storey
Ex-Homicide Detective Frank Langer is a broken man – but he’s all that stands in the way of a deadly conspiracy.
Since a mental breakdown put him on medical leave from the squad he was once hand-picked to lead, Frank spends his days drinking and chain-smoking, and his nights waking up screaming from a horrific recurring nightmare.
Then one day, by chance, he stumbles on a monstrous plot to kidnap children.
When he shows up at the squad with his wild story, the guys pat him on the back and tell him to go home. But after the mother of one of the missing children commits suicide, Frank stamps down his demons, and together with the dead woman’s sister Rebecca, plunges into the case.
He uncovers a shadowy entity lurking behind one of the richest and most powerful Pharma corporations in the world. When he finally unravels the mystery, the truth is more bizarre and deadly than he ever imagined, and telling Rebecca would put her life in danger. Soon even she comes to question his sanity.
Frank has to warn the world of the danger. But can he stay alive long enough to find someone to buy his story?
