CLIFTON, N.J. (PRWEB) July 14, 2017
In Gil Medina’s new book, “Wisdom of the Universe: A Novel” (published by Archway Publishing), a science fiction thriller, one man joins forces with a multinational team of experts to prevent a terrorist group from using advanced technology to destroy the world.
In the first half of the 21st century, the winds of renewal that drove the affairs of humankind near the end of the previous century are spreading democracy and the rule of law to significant portions of the world. But some 20th-century discords remain unresolved, and fanatics, unable to organize official armies, turn to terror instead.
When a shadowy extremist group deploys advanced technologies to kill off whole segments of the human population, Martin Molina emerges as a reluctant champion of the people seeking to help stop the massacre of innocents. A former marine who is deeply spiritual, he finds himself forced into working with military and law enforcement personnel from around the world – some of whom were once his adversaries – to locate the source of the tech causing earthquakes and spreading chemical and biological agents that are killing millions. Only time will tell whether he will succeed in protecting humanity from those seeking to harm it.
“The threat of extreme nationalist ideology has become a very real concern in the West,” Medina says. “We see it on the rise with Vladimir Putin, the Brexit vote, the rise of nationalists like Marine Le Pen, the leader of France's far-right National Front party, and the election of Donald Trump in the US. ‘Strongmen’ have also assumed power in the Philippines and Turkey. When times are uncertain, there is a tendency for societies to turn to such leaders without appreciating the dangers of doing so.”
