The Formula
Paperback  Paperback  
The Formula is a contemporary, character-driven mystery that begins with what appears to be a senseless murder of Dr. Laura Russo who is found at the base of a popular hiking trail in Aspen, Colorado. The lead investigator, Ronnye Christakos, a childhood friend of Dr. Russo, quickly discovers that her friend's death occurred because Dr. Russo had become the target of international assassins who were seeking to steal the formula for a drug that she has been researching since college. This drug has the potential to change the behavior of military personnel, as well as, treat post-traumatic stress disorder. In her investigation, Detective Christakos is assisted by, and becomes romantically involved with, Dr. Wayne Buckley, a Denver pathologist. Together they face the fact that they are pawns in a murderous game of global intrigue. Gregory, Dr. Russo's brother, an Army Ranger working in a special operations unit in Afghanistan, returns to the U.S. for his sister's funeral and vows to help Ronnye find his sister's murderers. Colonel Ziv, an Israeli officer, had an appointment with Dr. Russo to discuss Israel's potential involvement in the testing and production of the drug she discovered. However, after Dr. Russo's murder, he finds himself personally involved not only in the investigation, but in an international web of deceit. Joel Feiss is a practicing gastroenterologist and internist. The Formula, his second published novel, keeps readers on the edges of their seats while it explores some contemporary issues of history and religion in a character-driven mystery that has international implications. He currently lives in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with his wife, Pearl
