The Athena Factor
Bizarre celebrity thefts are occurring all over the world: A piece of hair from John Lennon, Julia Roberts' bed linens. . . . Sheela Marks, Hollywood's hottest actress, is hounded by obsessed fans literally out for a piece of her. Terrified and desperate, she charges her chief security guard, ex-Marine Lymon Bridges, with providing fortress-like safety.
Bridges recruits Christal Anaya, a hot shot former FBI agent who lost her job due to a major slip-up during a case. Bridges hopes to use Anaya's investigative expertise to unveil the perpetrator behind the attacks.
What Anaya finds is far stranger than anything coming out of Hollywood. A major genetics firm has been kidnapping top genetic scientists and using use them in a bizarre black market trade of celebrity DNA--all at the command of a megalomaniacal mastermind who will stop at nothing until the world is as beautiful as Hollywood's A-list.
