Abstract:
A Fast Paced Thriller

A Scientific Morality Play

A Sympathetic Engaging Character

Beyond Guilty

Posted on February 16th, 2010

Beyond Guilty is a high concept thriller where a wrongly convicted woman escapes from death row and fights to prove her innocence.

However, the novel is much more than fast paced thriller. It will introduce you to nanomedicine, an exciting field of medical science that will bring almost instantaneous cures for cancer, alzheimers, HIV, diabetes and many other diseases.

What is nanomedicine? How will nanomedicine affect our lives? Does nanotechnology have a dark side? Wrapped around the answers to these questions is the plot for Beyond Guilty.

Teenager Eileen Robinson lives in an ideal, middle class African-American family in Houston, Texas. Through a careless act she causes the deaths of her two younger sisters. Tormented and alienated from her mother, she runs away from home. Befriended by a drug dealer, she moves in with him. At twenty-one she is a single mother of two falsely convicted of killing a state senator's son and sentenced to death. At thirty-three she is executed. Or is she?

"The author's inclusion of the concept of nanomedicine in the plot is articulate and intriguing...His characters are nicely done…Readers who like the thrillers and mysteries with a medical theme should find Beyond Guilty interesting and entertaining, as well as faster-paced than most books in this sub-genre." --Von Pittman for The Genreview

Robert A. Freitas Jr., Senior Research Fellow at the Institute For Molecular Manufacturing has graciously edited the references to nanomaufacturing and nanomedicine and has written the essay at the end of the novel about the progress being made in developing nanomedicine. "I enjoyed the book," he said. "It's a good read. The ending has a neat wrap-up with almost all the loose ends nicely taken care of."

"Eileen Robinson is a sympathetic, engaging character. She is a tortured soul, but has hope for reuniting with her children and clearing her name…You root for her from the beginning." --Tim Sheard, author of the Lenny Moss crime novels.

"This is an intricate plot that clearly draws the battle lines and spells out the dire costs on all sides if they fail. The resolution is realistic, with even the winner paying a heavy price for struggling. The core of the story is a scientific morality play. Harlan Ellison would be proud of this plot." --Maryland Writers Association

After graduating the University of Florida and a stint in the National Guard, Richard Brawer worked 35 years in the textile industry.
