The Geminus Conspiracy opens with down-on-his-luck Cliff Weller drinking his blues away at Nicky Congo’s Bar. But the gearshift of his luck slams into fast forward when a baffling but attractive woman seeks his help in locating a runaway teenager.
Maybe it was the wad of cash she flashed or the scent of her perfume, either way, much to Cliff’s better judgment he was compelled to take on the case.
But of course not all is what it seems to be. Through his investigation, Cliff uncovers the Geminus Corporation, a sinister organization involved in clandestine genetic experiments.
