Wilson concludes his two-book ICE Sequence series where the past collides with the present in this exhilarating escapade that takes modern-day scientist Laura Fanning and her boyfriend Rick on a wild and dangerous trek halfway around the world. An unusual encounter between man and an intelligent species of simians raises anticipation of the conclusion and who should be the victor.

Amaury Laffite smuggles exotic animals sold through a roving storefront stocked only with photographs. Willing to break the law to get what he wants, Amaury sets sail with a man named Marten to locate a rare animal amid the islands of Madagascar. Currently in New York, Laura Fanning visits James Fife. She’s responsible for his confinement to a wheelchair and wants to administer a miracle panacea ikhar that healed her terminally ill daughter Marissa. He refuses it. Ironically, when Laura gets home, there’s a package waiting with a dose of the medicine. She discovers Rick Hayden (from the first novel, Panacea) has siblings she knows nothing about. His bestselling author brother is missing. Laura and Rick’s journey to find him takes them on a dangerous adventure that leads them into a realm they aren’t expecting. (FORGE, Jan., 368 pp., $25.99)
