Bizarre celebrity thefts are occurring all over the world: A piece of hair from John Lennon, Julia Roberts'' bed linens, and Sheela Marks, Hollywood''s hottest actress, is constantly being approached in odd ways by obsessed fans literally out for a piece of her. Paranoid and desperate for her own safety, she turns to her security expert, ex-Marine Lymon Bridges, who must match wits with his most formidable opponent yet.
One of Bridges''s new recruits, Christal Anaya, was a hot shot FBI agent who recently lost her job due to a major slip-up during one of the agencies most sought after cases. Now Bridges hopes to use her investigative expertise to unveil the perpetrator behind these "attacks." But what she finds is far stranger than anything coming out of Hollywood. A major genetics firm has been all over the world, kidnapping the best genetic scientists to use their expertise in a bizarre black market trade of celebrity DNA, and its megalomaniacal mastermind will stop at nothing until the world is as beautiful as Hollywood''s A-list.

The Athena Factor 1 THE ST. REGIS HOTEL, NEW YORK, FIVE YEARS LATER T he carpeted hallway was empty. Lymon Bridges double-checked to make sure as he stepped out of Sheela Marks'' plush penthouse suite. He glanced up and down from long habit, checking for potential threats, and found none. He turned, nodded to Dot McGuire--Sheela''s publicist--and waited while she and Sheela stepped outside. Sheela Marks clutched her fake gold-plated plastic Oscar statue in her manicured hands. She was holding it upside down like a misshapen kitchen knife. Dot, in her midforties, walked behind in a tweed jacket and gray skirt. Sheela was resplendent. Dot had dressed her in a sheer silvery sheath by Dolce and Gabbana that glistened with each step. It also accented the sensual curves of her hip and bust. She wore white michelle K stilettos that gave her another five inches--as if she needed them--and a white furry Dior boa wrapped around her shoulders. Her hair was immaculate, piled up on top with long reddish blond locks falling down her back. The entire image was to remind people of her best actress Oscar last month for Blood Rage . A quick glance behind assured him that both Dot and Sheela were following as he led the way to the service elevator. Lymon liked the St. Regis.

Editorial Reviews

"Dr. Frankenstein has at last perfected his art and hung out his shingle in Hollywood. The Athena Facor is a hell of a novel."---Stephen Coonts

"In The Athena Factor, Michael Gear has transformed America''s obsession with Hollywood beauty into an epic thriller of transcendent terror. I thought the world would come to an end with comet strikes, mushroom clouds, and apocalyptic plagues. I never dreamed we''d overwhelm the earth with J-Lo look-alikes and George Clooney clones."-Jack Anderson, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist
