The Confession of Hemingway Jones
Also available at
After a deadly accident, Hemingway Jones does what no doctor has been able to do: revive his father from the dead. While the result isn’t entirely human, the billionaire owner of the research center will stop at nothing to repeat the experiment.
It’s time to raise the dead.
Moments after a devastating car accident kills his father, 17-year-old Hemingway Jones takes his father’s body to Lifebank, the cryogenic preservation research center where he interns. Hijacking the lab in a desperate attempt to reverse the natural order, Hemingway holds police and medics at bay as he works to revive his father. As dawn breaks, the heart monitor beeps, and his father slowly creeps back to life.
Days later, Hemingway arrives at the hospital to learn that his father’s skin has turned ashen gray, he can’t exist in temperatures above 55 degrees Fahrenheit, and hydrogen sulfide has become his only source of food. Facing arrest for his reckless actions, Hemingway is offered a proposal by the billionaire owner of the lab: recreate the experiment he swore he’d never do again, or go to prison, leaving his father to die a second time.
“The Confession of Hemingway Jones grabs you on page one and never lets go, with a story that is equally pulse-pounding and heart-breaking.” —Melinda Metz, author of the Roswell High series, writer for Roswell
