John Robert McCauley about this book: Set around the exciting backdrop of New York City and terrorists, this story is about Dr. Wolfgang Von Braun, a New York-bred scientist, who is the father of drones, and Kristen, his Brazilian daughter, who he has never met. This is a remarkable story of family bonds and individual triumph. Though worlds apart, their scientific genes promise to bring them together until a tragedy changes Kristen's life forever. She finds herself stepping into the shoes of her father and his remarkable zest for discovery. In the midst of her incredible journey, she is bonded together with her father by their genes. Along this journey, she learns to accept the ghosts of her father's past. In this regard, unexpected events lead her to cross paths with Nolan, an unemployed stockbroker, in the strangest of locations. As their relationship goes from awkward to genuine friends, she just may discover the meaning of her life, and, if she's lucky, pick up Nolan as well.
