3 Fountain Society Craven, Wes
Very Good. 
Hardcover. Hardcover with dustjacket 1999 Simon and Schuster. Superclean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight. Only light wear. 352pp. Hologram cover art. Language: English. NOTE: Cannot ship outside U.S. via Global Priority -- Surface or Airmail only. 'Film director Craven, famous for his Nightmare on Elm Street series, takes a stab at thriller-writing--with considerable success. Dr. Peter Jance, a brilliant physicist on the verge of developing the ultimate weapon for the U.S. government, is suffering from pancreatic cancer and is in danger of dying before he completes his task. The solution may lie with Dr. Frederick Wolfe, the master of the super-secret military-sponsored Fountain Society--as in fountain of youth. ... What follows is a wickedly clever tale of genetic experimentation and human cloning, international military intrigue, mad-scientist wizardry, and evil secret intelligence that would be right at home in The X-Files. That Craven can make all of this believable is a testament to his writing skill; the master of the macabre has a winner....'--Rebecca House Stankowski, Library Journal, 1999.
