Former Navy SEAL turned inventor Mark Farrell is determined to make a lasting impact on the world. His latest invention, a "smart" EEG machine called EEGXpert, may fulfill that dream, but inexplicable delays plague the project. An overbearing venture capitalist, suspected sabotage, a troubled marriage and an alluring VP of Software greatly complicate Mark's pursuit of his goal. When an accident leaves him stranded on the fringe of heaven-a place he didn't think even existed-he enlists heavenly help to devise a treatment plan to save his life. In violation of heaven's strict no-communication-with-earth rule, he relies on a secret capability built into Xpert to send the first e-mails from heaven. Unfortunately, the only recipient of his messages would rather see him dead. Worse yet, he may literally have hell to pay for his communication attempt. Set in Colorado and Costa Rica, Brain Waves is a medical suspense novel that begins as a tale of revenge but turns into one of forgiveness. The author weaves neuroscience, computer technology and philosophy into a compelling story about a man who refuses to enter heaven too soon. Ultimately, Mark's legacy proves more momentous than he ever imagined. ABOUT THE AUTHOR This is the first novel for Dennis Murphy, a retired systems engineer, knowledge engineer, software developer, project manager, entrepreneur and adjunct college physics instructor. He was inspired to write Brain Waves to articulate his own beliefs about life after death. Murphy has personally designed and contributed to artificial intelligence applications like the one described in Brain Waves. He earned a bachelor's degree from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and a master's degree from the University of Colorado in Boulder-the primary setting for this novel- where he once owned a small business. He and his wife, Diane, now live in western North Carolina. The author invites reader comments at BrainWavesNovel@aol.com.
