Enzo Lee had been a hot shot investigative reporter in New York until he got caught up in a journalism scandal that threatened his career.

Suddenly, Lee finds himself knee deep in a bio-terrorism conspiracy involving a well-known bio-tech company and government officials who have a secret they don’t want known, and are willing to go to any lengths, including murder, to keep it from ever coming to light.

Full of chills and a bit of wry humor, it will keep you turning pages and guessing, with an ending that will leave you breathless as you follow Lee from coast to coast in his effort to untangle the threads of a deadly plot with global implications.
First rate writing with enough plot twists to bedevil even the most ardent thriller fan. A book you’ll not be able to put down, and that will leave you thinking long after you stop reading. How far will people go in their efforts to hang on to power? You’ll just have to read it and find out.
A great first novel that I give four stars to.
When 10-year-old Megan Kim disappears from her coastal Alabama school, a desperate search for her begins. In San Francisco, newspaper reporter Enzo Lee is desperate to find a cure for his grandmother’s leukemia. The lives of these two people become inextricably linked. Lee is seeking Walter Novak, a scientist who was working on an experimental drug that just might cure his grandmother. Novak is also the man who spirited Megan from her school.
In Megan’s Cure, author Robert B. Lowe takes the reader on a harrowing journey that spans the continent, and involves shadowy figures with dubious motives, all of whom have an interest in Megan Kim. Pithy dialogue and colorful narrative descriptions make this a story that is hard – no impossible – to put down until you reach the end.
I received a free copy of Megan’s Cure in exchange for my unbiased review. But, I have to confess to being biased. The Enzo Lee mysteries are for me the epitome of what a good mystery should be. Fully developed characters with whom the reader can identify, and settings that are skillfully and accurately drawn. Lowe is a master at showing how different cultures interact, and at sucking the reader into the story until you’re convinced you’re reading a fictionalized version of true events.
An easy 4-star rating for this outstanding mystery!
