About the Book

In 1945, during the bombing of Dresden, nine-year-old Nemamiah Heinrich suffered burns and a concussion. After awakening from a coma, Nemamiah discovered he possessed telepathic powers that enabled him to make people do his bidding. Two years later, Nemamiah and his father emigrated from East Germany to the United States, making their home in Asheville, North Carolina. Here, they flourished and Nemamiah became a geriatric physician. The doctor witnesses the inhumane treatment and unnecessary deaths of nursing home patients, and he vows to reform these institutions. He calls on his fortune and telepathic powers to recruit nursing home residents as assassins, confound the FBI, terrify eldercare legislators and industry officials, and shut down the federal government. A masterful blend of suspenseful fantasy and humor, Life Support narrates a captivating and fast-paced story that reveals and calls attention to the startling maltreatment of residents of many nursing homes.
