       Additional Information  
     
      A veteran of more than thirty films, Wes Craven has become a household name synonymous with inventive genius, wit, and inspired, shocking thriller cult classics.

    Now he brings his wicked talents to bear on the novel of suspense with a spine-chilling tale that will leave readers breathless, a story of breakthrough medical technology run amok, a terrifying government conspiracy, and a life-after-death romance.

    At the center of the novel is a sinister plot to confer immortality on a select, elite group of government scientists - a plot of such cold brutality and evil that it has been kept secret from everybody, even those who might one day benefit from it.

    Dr. Peter Jance is a brilliant weapons scientist, dying of cancer just as he nears completion of his greatest invention. Beatrice is his beautiful scientist wife. Dr. Frederick Wolfe is the dark genius who with Beatrice's help, has discovered the secrets of immortality. Elizabeth and Hans, young lovers, healthy and strong, are the unknowing victims of Wolfe's sinister plans.

    Featuring a unique and fascinating love triangle, and combining the elements of a state-of-the-art medical thriller with those of a great suspense caper, Wes Craven's Fountain Society is a book that chills, thrills, and satisfies like his own movies, building to a climax of unspeakable tension and shock.
