About the Book

A mysterious illegal immigrant, only known as TWIG, may have the cure to the HIV virus locked in his blood. As information of this revolutionary discovery is leaked, several entities launch a deadly search to find and exploit TWIG’s secrets. This medical thriller unfolds as the CIA enlists former agent, Penny Sears to track down this would-be modern-day miracle. Also, in desperate pursuit is a pharmaceutical giant that will stop at nothing to get this vital information. The fascinating combination of art and science explodes in THE TWIG PAINTER as Penny is charged with finding TWIG while protecting her family from the dangerous, high-stakes game in which she finds herself immersed. The clock is ticking...


“THE TWIG PAINTER is a story of international intrigue, stretching from Lisbon to Boston and Chicago. It provides a behind-the-scenes look at the extremes pharma companies might go to protect their financial interests even in the face of new hope to cure AIDS. A great read.”

Howard Wolinsky, formerly  the medical reporter at the Chicago Sun-Times
