Demand for Research Puts Two Nations at Brink of War in Donald P. Robin’s New Thriller

Donald P. Robin’s new thriller, sequel to the 2013 novel “Libator,” features the attempted rescue of 50 kidnapped children taken by a nation that will stop at nothing to attain secret laboratory research. Dog Ear Publishing has released this latest work.

Punta Gorda, FL, May 07, 2018 --( Standing up for principles is important, but sometimes doing so can have unforeseen consequences. A new novel, released by Dog Ear Publishing, shares what happens when government officials refuse to give secret research to another nation because of the possibility of misuse and the dramatic response that refusal ignites.

“2079: A War for Brain Enhancement” is set in Libator, a highly advanced nation nestled in what used to be southern Somalia. Its scientists have been working on enhancing the brain, conducting research to adapt humans and give them enhanced intelligence, hand-to-hand combat skills and other attributes. When its foreign minister and prime minister refuse a request to share that information with an Iranian official, a group of Iranian Al Quds agents kidnap 50 young children from Libator.

Stephanie Li and John Thompson, whose 3-year-old son is one of the kidnapped children, are chosen to be spies in Tehran. They are asked to gather information and, finally, to infiltrate a uranium enrichment facility that holds four of the children. Although some children are recovered, others remain held captive. As promised, Iranian leaders begin to die from suspicious causes. Will the Libatorans be able to rescue all of the children or will the two nations go to war?

This is the seventh book written by Donald P. Robin, former professor of business ethics at Wake Forest University. He has written two science fiction novels and five nonfiction books, as well as numerous academic articles. Robin incorporates the knowledge from his lifelong interest in neuroscience, military weapons technology and philosophy of science into his works of fiction. He and his wife, Sarah, live in Punta Gorda, Fla.
