A team of scientists has created an innovative cognitive enhancer that creates geniuses. Working with a pharmaceutical CEO, Stanford neuroscientist Alan Pierce and psychiatrist Michelle Emmett test the powerful smart drug on a special operations team of soldiers that was assembled to preventatively assassinate future global threats. But the scientists and the military team’s leader, David Landry, soon discover a disturbing side effect. While the drug stimulates dramatic increases in intelligence it also turns its users into clinical psychopaths.

The Genius Dilemma is a fast-paced and information-packed science fiction/action adventure novel that explores man’s inherent desire for progress, our seemingly endless fascination with enhancing the human body and mind, and Mother Nature’s rebellion to our oftentimes reckless curiosity.
