Here’s the set-up:
Ben signed up to be a highly paid pharmaceutical consultant, not an industrial spy in Miami.
Rebecca signed up to be a world health physician, not a hostage in the Brazilian Amazon.
But strange things can happen when you discover a new kind of gold.
Series author Dirk Wyle has created a new kind of mystery-thriller — powered by medical science, business and anthropology, and driven by the professional challenges of a two-career couple. In a stunning climax, Ben and Rebecca are reunited to discover astonishing truths — and to fight for their lives.
“Wyle has given the hard-boiled thriller a scientific twist, making his novels pleasing for both their intrigue and their intellect.” — Booklist
“If Amazon Gold was a movie … it would win it for best screenplay because it is a well-crafted, mystifying, thought-provoking and entertaining story that thrills laymen and science buffs equally well. You are in good company with Ben Candidi and Rebecca Levis – and are ready to go with them wherever their next adventure takes them.” — Amazon Reviewer, 5 Stars
About The Author
Dirk Wyle’s mystery-thrillers play out against an authentically rendered backdrop of biomedical science. His stories are informed by a long scientific career that included a Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania, postdoctoral work in Germany and service as a medical school professor in Miami (“Google” Duncan H. Haynes). He conducted research in abnormal blood coagulation and drug delivery and invented a drug microencapsulation technology (searchable at www.uspto.gov) which led to the founding of three companies employing approximately 65 people. Countless story ideas came as a byproduct of that quest, and eventual commercial success gave him leeway to create the Ben Candidi mystery-thriller series. Believing there are no stone walls separating the realms of popular science, serious literature, formal mystery and cliff-handing suspense, Dirk Wyle has created stories that play out in all four arenas. Protagonist Ben accepts “straightforward scientific” projects which quickly turn perplexing, mysterious and then sinister. With the help of fiancee Rebecca Levis, world health physician, Ben solves the mystery just before the bad guys (and gals) strike back. Like his protagonists Ben and Rebecca, Dirk Wyle does not regard work and play as necessarily separate activities. He enjoys researching the books’ exotic locations, which include the waters of South Florida, the Bahamas and the Brazilian Amazon.
