Hope House-Coming July 2013

thCAIMM1KESuffering a miscarriage is a devastating experience for a woman, but what if right before the doctor removed the lifeless fetus, you felt it kick? And what if no one believed you? In Hope House, a riveting  thriller, Gloria Hanes is a young beautiful woman who has taken great pains to move beyond the grief of losing her baby. When years later she receives a call that her bone marrow matches a child in need, she jumps at the chance to help. It turns out the little girl is the same age as Gloria’s would have been, and she’s adopted. Could it be her child? Or is this the same obsessive thinking that landed her in a mental hospital? When she approaches the adoption agency to ask, the danger begins, fueling her belief that her child is still alive. Enlisting the aid of a private investigator with a dark and mysterious past, she forges ahead on a quest around the globe, to the adoptive parents of several children whose birth mothers’ stories do not add up, to a baby farm in Haiti, and ultimately to a showdown where she learns the horrific truth about what science can and will create in the name of profit.

Reviews for The Proteus Cure

proteus_cover_KINDLE_03-28-13The Proteus Cure has been out less than two weeks but has already gotten a few great reviews on Amazon.

“Love F Paul’s books, this latest collaboration is exceptional, sort of left it open for sequel. Maybe so,maybe not, enjoyed greatly just the same. Might try a Carbone book to see how she rates on her own.”

“When an author you know and an author you don’t work together, you can’t help but wonder what the finished product is going to be like. In a word, this was seamless. Incredible teamwork by two gifted individuals for story that kept me turning pages long into the night. It had me first asking “could we?”- then “should we- even though…..?”. The science was clear to understand without any feeling of being watered down. Hoping for a sequel!”

“Authors F Paul Wilson and Tracy Carbone have written a fantastic medical thriller, The Proteus Cure. Cutting edge cancer cure/genetics mixed with a layered deep conspiracy and characters that almost make you feel their struggle. It’s a non-stop action thriller that you’ll have a hard time putting down.”

The Proteus Cure

proteus_cover_KINDLE_03-28-13The Proteus Cure is a chilling medical thriller I co-wrote with NY Times bestselling author F. Paul Wilson. The formal release date is May 1st, but if you subscribe to this blog or just happen to come across this post, congratulations! You can buy this before everyone else! Here’s a bit about the book, which we’ve kept super secret until now.

“Paul Wilson and Tracy Carbone have penned a winner. The suspense is razor sharp and the characters masterfully drawn. Paul Wilson is at the top of the game, and Tracy Carbone is a welcome addition to the genre. You’ll love The Proteus Cure.” – Michael Palmer, NY Times best selling author of Political Suicide

In medical ethics, the line between right and wrong is often blurred. Who is to decide what is for the good of humanity?

Changing the world. One person at a time…

That is the mission statement of Tethys Hospital, run by Dr. Bill Gilchrist and his deformed sister, Abra. VG723, their revolutionary stem-cell-based therapy, appears to be capable of doing just that for the cancer patients who come to Tethys. VG723 is often their last hope. But if they match the protocol, they’re virtually guaranteed a cure.

Dr. Sheila Takamura, a young, dedicated oncologist, is proud to be involved in the clinical trials. Once the FDA approves it for widespread use, VG723 will revolutionize cancer therapy. That is why she’s alarmed when former patients return with bizarre syndromes. Yes, they’re cancer free, but they’re experiencing dramatic changes in their hair and skin and general appearance. When she investigates a possible link to the protocol, those patients start dying. As the body count grows, Sheila finds her own life in danger. She comes to suspect there might be a literal meaning behind the Tethys motto – but can she learn the truth in time to save herself and millions of others?

“Wilson is one of the masters of the medical thriller.” – Larry King
