Jack Montgomery is a freelance investigator for the CDC's Global Health Center, and soon stumbles upon a medical mystery that threatens to change everything he thought he knew about the world--and might change everything he thought he knew about himself.  As the pieces of a world-wide conspiracy fall into place, Jack awakens a sleeping giant that could crush him without a thought.  One that has now turned its attention to him.

The machineries of government grind slowly, and one man with nothing left to lose just might have a chance.  A chance to free the sleepers.

"Adrift"

"A ship in harbor is safe.... but that's not what ships are built for..." ~ John A. Shedd

Lucy Foxe’s mother has been missing for six months when her dad packs her off to grief camp in the middle of senior summer. Unable to bear another minute of the place, and unwilling to accept that her mother is actually dead, Lucy breaks out and heads for home the first chance she gets. Unfortunately, a broken curfew is not the only problem she’ll face upon arriving there.  Her dad has now gone missing as well, leaving an inadequate note in the freezer and two threatening thugs in the hallway.

Lucy follows a trail of family lies back to Mackinac Island, Michigan, a home her parents left behind without explanation years ago. The island has long harbored an affinity for the supernatural and it is here that she reunites with her grandparents and eventually uncovers a mind-bending truth that her family has been hiding for centuries.

Lucy will struggle to maintain her moral compass in a world gone crazy, losing her heavy heart along the way. Eli will anchor her to the past and a life free from the madness, but can she forgive herself if she abandons her parents for his promises of safe harbor? Luke is a beacon towards a dangerous and unknown future, full of thrilling possibilities, but is she brave enough to jump into uncharted waters?

In the end she will be dragged back in time against her will to settle an old vendetta, and it will be in the past that she will finally see the future clearly and ultimately face the question of whether she is living a life or creating a destiny.
