FOX IS A PRACTICING EYE SURGEON RESIDING IN FT LAUDERDALE FLORDIA WHERE HE ENJOYS A WONDERFUL LIFE WITH HIS MUSE TERESA AND THEIR PORTUGUESE WATER DOG, RAY CHARLES.
Meet Henry Gilles, world-renowned business magnate and corporate raider. He knows that he is dying of a terminal disease but finds this totally unacceptable—there is so much more to accomplish.
He has a plan to assure his immortality. It will be revealed on his demise. He reads A bedside note from AccuGen and smiles. The plan is in effect.
It has become so much harder for Henry to breathe during the last few hours. He now felt an all-consuming malaise, as if his internal battery was finally sputtering and failing. It seemed that even the effort of keeping his normally crystal-clear mind working was becoming an impossible chore. His thoughts lost focus; his mind began to drift upon an expansive sea of unconsciousness.
He reaches out in vain to grab his call button to summon help, but then has a change of heart. He sighs and turns away, so sick and tired of asking for help. All alone, he feels a blanket of grayness swaddling him, a grayness that soon dimmed to black.
Although Henry Gilles was dead, he had no intention of going quietly.
