The Methuselah Poem
America and China are in a superpower race in quest of the tree of life in Eden to develop a magic bullet and banish death forever. But the answer lies in knowing the meaning of a contradictory so-called Methuselah poem. Therefore, the White House tasks a Harvard professor and Noble laureate to interpret the mystery poem. So where is the tree for the elixir and who finds it first? More
The story is written in a fast-paced arresting prose style with a beckoning pitch that leads to suspense after suspense, spying and counter spying, twists and turns, dramatic comedies, heart-pounding misses and mishaps like the Chinese kidnap of the American Poet laureate, plane crash at the Yangtze River, and pirates' sinking of Chinese ship. It is sprinkled with geographical facts, biblical interpretations, and mythology.
The unique naming of the characters tells the story—from the American President Godsend, Professor Muse, Mr. Hunter, Mr. Catcher, Major Eagle-Eye, Professor Cramwell and Commodore Sea-Devil—with hypnotizing dialogues, and the exclusive Harvard community language called Harvardspeak.
This is an original story. It begins with the intriguing poem and efforts to unravel its meaning. But both rival nations were no nearer the answer in the end when they disappointingly find the same poem, instead of the tree, cryptically inscribed on a stone at the lake bed, after emptying its waters. So where next will they seek this disappearing tree of life?
The question and the quest will mesmerize millions of mystery readers seeking solution to the millennial-long longing for longevity in this fleeting life.
