    Found a good one--Elixir, by Gary Braver

    So I was in the book store and this one caught my eye. It's a biotech thriller about a guy who discovers, essentially, the fountain of youth in a medicinal plant while in a rainforest in Papua New Guinea. He brings it to the States, and the pharmaceutical company he works for catches wind of his private development of this rare plant that prevents human aging, and things get pretty twisted. Very cool, and it even has a shaman at the beginning (I love the shamanic stuff).

    It's got moral dilemmas, a good plot, and solid writing. Well-researched, too.

    The funny thing is, it turns out to be by a teacher I had many years ago, Gary Goshgarian (Braver is his pseudonym).

    Anybody read it?

    Or anything else good lately?
