THE AUSTIN PARADOX is Book 2 in the award-winning, critically acclaimed, New York Times Best Selling Miracle Man series that chronicles the remarkable saga of Robert James Austin, the greatest genius in human history, whose medical cures saved countless millions. A fully “stand-alone” novel, THE AUSTIN PARADOX can be enjoyed without having read the series’ first book.

In this emotionally-charged medical/psychological/conspiracy thriller, author William R. Leibowitz takes the reader on an unpredictable action-packed journey. The suspense doesn’t let up as the fast paced twisting plots unfold and Austin battles Big Pharma which views him as their worst enemy, a CIA Director who is hell-bent on exploiting his genius, terrorists who lose control of a biological weapon, and a bevy of corrupt politicians and oligarchs.

William R. Leibowitz has been lauded as a “mastermind storyteller with a unique literary voice” and has been favorably compared by readers and critics to Michael Crichton, Robin Cook, Stephen King, John Grisham and Ken Follett.

THE AUSTIN PARADOX opens with Austin having lost his extraordinary intellectual powers in a laboratory explosion that was intended to kill him. Still in the prime of life, the blast cuts him down at the pinnacle of his brilliance and robs him of his tools. The greatest genius in history now struggles to find meaning in a life that has become devoid of purpose.

Embarking on a journey of self-discovery in an effort to regain his abilities, Austin clashes with private demons that threaten his sanity, a government obsessed with controlling him, and metaphysical forces intent on destroying him. When ruthless political and business interests align to pose an existential threat to humanity, Austin is thrust into the maelstrom.

Doubted even by those who love him, Austin confronts a harrowing paradox as time runs out to save mankind from extinction.

The Austin Paradox is the sequel to the critically acclaimed, award winning novel, Miracle Man, which was named by Amazon as ONE OF THE TOP 100 NOVELS OF 2015, a TOP 10 BEST SELLING THRILLER and a TOP 10 NEW YORK TIMES/AMAZON BEST SELLER.

“THE AUSTIN PARADOX grabs from the start and is just as hard to put down as a Robin Cook saga; perhaps more so, because characters in The Austin Paradox are exceptionally well-done. It’s hard to capture the full impact on the reader of the combination of a medical thriller paired with government and terrorist forces, and interwoven with international intrigue; all wound into one genius’ life and times. The result engages readers on many levels, from political to psychological to spiritual arenas, and is highly recommended for fans of medical and international espionage thrillers.” … The Midwest Book Review

“Make no mistake-you will be kept on the edge of your seat right from the beginning. The author does a great job of keeping the suspense and action going throughout the book and I recommend this compelling read to all who enjoy intense medical/psychological thrillers.” … Reader Views
