The Nfin8 Echo – An allegory of Saint Stephen
In Ronnie Lee’s newly released thriller, Stephen Crown is suddenly left without a father—a victim of an accidental prescription opioid overdose. Angry and filled with grief, Stephen refocuses his blog from college humor to an exposé on the pharmaceutical industry. Soon he is asking questions and discovering facts that the industry would rather go unnoticed.
When Annia Belmont publishes an article about Stephen, his blog starts trending, and the power brokers at NexChem Pharmaceuticals decide to teach him the price of speaking out against their practices. Their curriculum for Stephen includes hard-knocks courses in economics and biology—specifically, how the food chain works. Stephen, the small fish, stands his ground, and with the help of the hacker group N3RD, he begins to turn the tables. But will it be enough to win out against the power and finances backing NexChem?
