Aldo is a mystery/thriller/love story in which a brilliant and dangerous ideologue
attempts to eliminate a university’s genetics institute by holding the
university’s president hostage.

On the same day that Isabel Canto, associate director of Pembrook Atlantic
University’s Institute for Genome Modification, discovers she is pregnant with
IGM post-doc Frank Marks’s baby, Pembrook Atlantic University’s president Mary
Ellen Mackin receives a letter from “Aldo” threatening harm if she does not
dissolve the institute and fire its director. Isabel recommends that Mackin
refuse and not allow a terrorist to dictate what her faculty and students can
research and discover, but this advice unwittingly sets off a chain of events
that will change many lives forever—including hers.
