The R.E.M. Effect: A Thriller (The Ocula Series, Book 1)
J.M. Lanham, author

Adult; Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror; (Market)

It’s 2021 and Paul Freeman just landed a job with Asteria Pharmaceuticals, a world leader in revolutionary drug development. Paul knows the company’s future is riding on the success of their latest product—a sleeping pill designed to interact with the human genome to deliver the perfect eight-hour sleep cycle. Just a few blocks from Asteria’s Atlanta headquarters, troubled self-help guru Donny Ford is selling a different kind of drug, empowering followers to take control of their lives using a sacred meditation technique skeptics believe may have already taken his mind to a dangerous place. 3,000 miles away, war-hardened journalist Claire Connor sits captive in a top-secret facility hidden deep in the Costa Rican jungle, guilty of two offenses: seeking help for a sleep disorder, and asking too many questions. When these worlds collide, the three will discover just how far some companies are willing to go to protect the bottom line.

Danielle Urban, Urban Book Reviews

The R.E.M. Effect by J.M. Lanham is one brilliant science fiction thriller. I wasn't quite sure what to expect. The writing style blew me away. Every page adds to the intense situations. Danger, medical science, and more. J.M Lanham has created characters that make this a fascinating read. 

Faith Jones, Goodreads Reviewer

The reason why I think you would enjoy reading this book is because it’s a good, engaging story which the author steers with competent control. It’s as simple as that. The scenes aren’t too short, they’re not too long and there’s a second tier character called Donny who stands out from the cast like the lawyer’s character does from Breaking Bad.

Marian Thorpe Reviews

The R.E.M. Effect combines cutting-edge genetic research with fast-paced action, resulting in a science-fiction thriller that kept me turning the pages.

Temple Emmet Williams, former editor of the Readers Digest

The R.E.M. Effect is a well-written, well-researched sci-fi book that draws back the curtain on pharmaceutical skulduggery. Chasing a profit has deadly consequences. This terrific book has an open ending, suggesting more to come. I look forward to it.
