What would you do if you thought you knew how to save humanity from pending extinction? What if you had to kill someone to do it? What about a thousand people? A million? Six million? If your success hinged on it, would you be willing to enlist the help of an evil person who shared your goal, but none of your values?
A note from a nervous stranger sends former FBI agent turned wealth advisor David Blum on a journey to discover the truth behind his father’s recent death. All clues point to Otto Feldmann, a world-renowned professor of genetics at the University of Illinois and former acquaintance of his father’s.
Further digging leads Blum to Kay Westfield, a charming bank executive who years earlier witnessed a bizarre explosion on Feldmann’s experimental farm. As Blum and Westfield work together to unravel the labyrinth of funding behind the professor’s research center, a picture emerges of a monstrous plot by a shadowy international think tank to infect millions of people. But then, in a final showdown deep below the professor’s nightmare greenhouse, Blum discovers that the actual plan is infinitely more profound than anything he had imagined, forcing him to confront his own sense of morality.
All the while, Feldmann’s research assistant, a math prodigy with hidden ties to a violent, white-supremacist movement has been busy applying stochastic modeling to optimize the global distribution of the virus--permanently altering the human race and fulfilling the Pangaea Solution
From William Kent Krueger:
"With The Pangaea Solution, Charles Jacobs delivers a fast-paced, joy ride of a novel, compelling on many levels. Not only are readers treated to all the twists they expect in a riveting thriller, they’ll also find lots of food for thought along the way. For those who love to feast on conspiracy theory, The Pangaea Solution is guaranteed to satisfy even the heartiest of appetites. This is a fine debut novel from an author worth watching."
From Libby Fischer Hellmann:
"The thriller world has a new must-read writer! Charles Jacobs, debut author of The Pangaea Solution, delivers a smoothly written, suspense-filled story that will keep you turning pages well into the night. When David Blum, a former FBI agent turned financial analyst, comes home to Champaign, Illinois, after the death of his father, a note from an academic indicates his father did not die from a heart attack. Unable to find the note’s author, Blum keeps looking and discovers pieces of a plot that eventually lead to a terrifying climax. Quite the thriller ride, The Pangaea Solution is well worth your time. I loved it."

THE BILLION DOLLAR SUGAR CUBE--the sequel to The Pangaea Solution
A young nun disrobes in front of a total stranger. A jury convicts a man for murder despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. A high school football game erupts into a violent brawl. A church retreat ends with a mass suicide. The only common denominator is the presence of an eerie background noise.
New recruit, David Blum, fresh from agent training, is thrust into the maelstrom of a global conspiracy that revolves around a secretive institute’s potentially lethal research on bioacoustics and artificial emotion. Their desire for world domination depends on perfecting “The Billion Dollar Sugar Cube”—the decisive weapon of the next world war
Adapted from chapters removed from an earlier draft of my novel, The Pangaea Solution, we see the backstory on one of the characters, showing his progression from precocious child to hate-filled extremist.
