UNLIMITED by Davis Bunn
Simon Orwell is a brilliant student whose life has taken a series of wrong turns. At the point of giving up on his dreams, he gets a call from an old professor who has discovered a breakthrough in a device that would create unlimited energy, and he needs Simon's help.
But once he crosses the border, nothing goes as the young man planned. The professor has been killed and Simon is assaulted and nearly killed by members of a powerful drug cartel.
Now he must take refuge in the only place that will help him, a local orphanage. There, Simon meets Harold Finch, the orphanage proprietor who walked away from a lucrative career with NASA and consulting Fortune 500 companies to serve a higher cause.
With Harold's help, Simon sets out on a quest to uncover who killed the professor and why. In due time, he will discover secrets to both the worldchanging device and his own unlimited potential.
Simon Orwell and his old professor are working on a project and have been exchanging emails. Simon has completed his part and heads to Mexico to deliver it when he is attacked by drug cartel. He barely escapes with his life and he still has the powerful device. Upon arrival he discovers the professor is dead and is determined to find out who has been sending the emails?
This is a fascinating read, Simon knows his life is in danger and so are those of many children in an orphanage, Bunn makes this an intriguing story with the plot and his writing style. He makes you feel like you are right there in the midst of it all and I really like that!
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
