St. Louis, MO — (ReleaseWire) — 04/15/2022 — Indigo River Publishing is proud to announce the release of Dan W. Luedke’s debut novel, Elijah-Co, a fiction mystery-thriller.
The novel follows Lars Sorenson, an ambitious young oncologist, who is crushed when the promised funding for his cancer center is withdrawn. An obsessively secretive company, Elijah-Co, appears as a white knight—but with its own agenda. Lars can conduct human trials on Elijah-Co’s new cancer-killing drugs, but only if he agrees to perform a shadow study of one of them, EJ 181. Animal data suggests that this drug can reverse the aging process. Lars must prove its effectiveness in humans by conducting a clandestine trial. His research takes on greater urgency when he discovers that his wife’s mysterious illness may be cured by EJ 181. Half-truths and lies dot the landscape as Lars pursues Elijah-Co’s true goal of proving that EJ 181 can endow amortality.
Author Ronald D. Demmans says, “Elijah-Co is a wonderfully crafted mystery-thriller with a fast-paced story line filled with nooks and crannies and twists and turns, told by perfectly imperfect characters. Simply put, Elijah-Co is great read. My only question: Does Dan Luedke have another mystery hidden under his lab coat, waiting to be revealed? I hope so…”
Fiction is reality on steroids, and the novel Elijah-Co delivers that. Science fiction, however, needs to have deep roots in reality—the science must be believable. Dan Luedke’s experience with clinical cancer research provides the expertise for a credible scientific platform as Elijah-Co pursues age reversal and amortality.
Elijah-Co is available now on Amazon and at major book retailers.
