The Fleeting Vibration of Life
Frank Brubaker, author
Bonni is a down-and-out financial advisor with a gambling habit. He has always been searching for the shot that can change his life. When the opportunity for a big deal comes his way and at the same time a tip from a friend gives him the opportunity to reinvest the hefty commission in a "safe" deal, Bonni thinks fate has finally decided to repay him for his dark years. Stefan is an introverted boy with extraordinary abilities and a mysterious past. He lives in an institution for orphans and every day he leaves his classmates and superiors stunned with the manifestation of his knowledge. Where do the things he knows come from if he has not read them in textbooks or heard them on television? When Stefan gives further proof of his talent by finding the solution to Fermat's theorem, a centuries-old mathematical mystery, Doctor Costa, the doctor monitoring the psychological profile of the boys, realizes he need to keep Stefan under close watch, all the more so because his performances are often accompanied by sudden fainting fits. Gioele Zelder is a billionaire deceased a few years earlier. He arranged in his will for almost all of his assets to be turned over to a mysterious secret beneficiary. While an unknown epidemic affecting children jeopardizes the future of the human race and brings the world economy to its knees, an international task force funded by the major governments of developed countries, has made a revolutionary scientific discovery. What do Bonni and Stefan have to do with each other? Why, all of a sudden, does Stefan want to meet Bonni and why does Bonni feel the need, amid numerous difficulties, to set out to find Stefan? What does Gioele Zelder hide in his past and how are governments taking advantage of what they have discovered? Above all, how can all the answers be contained in what is called Project ZERO?
