The Prototype: It should never have existed, but now the world's fate depended on its survival978-1-64136-976-3
Stockton Clay, an ambitious young automotive journalist, receives a mysterious invitation to the world premiere of a secret prototype supercar. The half-Asian, half-Caucasian Clay, who was adopted as an infant and is desperate to find his own place in the world, sees this invitation as the break he had long been waiting for. At the gala event in Southern France, one of his colleagues is killed in a bizarre “accident,” and Clay is secretly led to CIA agents who tell him that he was the real target in the murder. Clay then discovers he suffers from a rare disease that can only be cured by the blood cells from a direct relative. Clay’s search for his biological father leads him to Japan, where he is caught in the crossfire between the CIA and a mad Russian scientist trying to sell his underground nanotechnology program to a hostile country. Clay finds himself in a fight for his life, as he tries to help thwart an evil plot that could sway the balance of world power.
