I intend to keep you informed on this dedicated page, of my progress in the completion of a trilogy called “The EQUITY Series“. This will be a continuation of the equity-theme established in EQUITY of EVIL that pulls our main character, Roman Citrano, back into other hi-tech but sinister worlds where human life continues to be the equity of evil!
OKAY, as of October 2012, this second manuscript has been completed and undergoing the first round of editing with the intention of being completed by mid-November. Not sure when the release might be schedule – either year end or in January. Will let you know.
The title: EQUITY of FEAR

And now a sneak-preview… the SYNOPSIS:
In EQUITY of FEAR, researchers and scientists in the United States, Russia and Japan compete in a new technological race to control fear and pain in the minds of the world’s populace. At first the race is rooted in purely scientific ambitions, such as that of space travel or in the era of industrial revolution, but it evolves into something much more sinister.
What might governments or powerful organizations pay for the keys to the fear of pain, the fear of death? What limits would prevent them from eliminating anything or anyone standing in the way? How far would they go to control the monopoly over a technology that could subliminally control the human brain, and what power would they have over the lives of billions if successful?
Dr. Frank Moretti, CEO of Recon Innovations, is among the founders of such new technology designed to help millions of patients eliminate irrational fears such as of flying, heights, insects that buzz, darkness of night, or even death. Recon has further developed a neuroplasticity program that successfully re-wires the brain to restore memories in stroke or Alzheimer’s patients, but now Recon goes after global commercial applications in a naïve attempt to license the technology to other competing countries. Despite several hints and warnings from Roman Citrano, member of the Recon board of directors and no stranger to the insidious intentions of other forces at work beneath still waters, Moretti pushes forward with his marketing plan. The target: a huge, Japanese consortium many times Recon’s size. The licensing attempt takes a dark and rebellious turn in which both Moretti and Citrano are drawn into a quagmire of international intrigue and ugliness.
Here is yet another dark world where scientists experiment on orphaned children rather than rhesus monkeys, where torture and pain become just another set of data points and lives are discarded for the sake of owning the ability to control how man perceives and processes fear.
Based on true medical discoveries and ongoing practices, this second novel in The EQUITY Series touches on the most personal emotion impacting everything man faces on a daily basis. Fear drives us all, be it fear of failure, the fear of being alone or fear of death. Once again, man’s predisposition to take control and ownership of the human spirit is at the core of each matter, always for the sake of profit and personal gain. Such is our brutal new world, where fear becomes the equity of evil.
