DENVER, Sept. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Scheduled for release on October 16, Dan Grant's new novel (http://dangrantbooks.com/) is a what-if scenario played out in a present time, high stakes, winner-takes-all game. This science/medical/techno suspense novel explores the possibilities of a radical, ominous future that many will kill to control. Published by Mindscape Press Inc., the book will be available as a hardback, trade paperback and in a variety of e-book versions, all sold through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iTunes/iBooks and Smashwords.
Murder and abduction are just the beginning in Dan Grant's story. Weaving a blend of possible research scenarios that center on mind mapping, mind control and illegal human experimentation, the tale explores what happens when a clandestine lab disposes of its test subject and kidnaps a U.S. Senator to protect its secrets — all triggering a federal investigation.
The covert program requires the services of Thomas Parker, a Princeton University professor and cutting-edge neurologist, to deliver its breakthrough achievement, while FBI Special Agent Kate Morgan also needs Parker to help her infiltrate the secret lab. Parker and Morgan are faced with the dilemma of advancing revolutionary technology to solve the senator's abduction, in addition to saving lives by answering the questions: What is a neurological singularity, and who is the Singularity Witness?
Together, Parker and Morgan discover that no sacrifice is too great for a cause that may unravel the mysteries of the mind and change the world forever.

Don't miss it!" — James Rollins, New York Times internationally bestselling author of "The Demon Crown."
