#1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author Richard Bard's Brainrush trilogy has already garnered nearly 2,000 Amazon 5-Star reviews, setting the stage for the launch of the next highly-anticipated Brainrush thrillers, Everlast and Ephemeral--a two-part adventure that will capture the imagination long after the final heart-stopping chapter. In this exciting conclusion, Jake Bronson must use every cell in his failing brain to have any chance of evading capture, rescuing his loved ones, and stopping a madman's plan to trigger global chaos dead in its tracks:

A gifted boy forced to grow up too fast... A father who will do anything to protect him... A madman bent on destroying them both.

In Amsterdam, a visionary scientist is laying the groundwork for a cybernetic life-extension project that will transfer individual consciousness to a personalized avatar. Halfway around the world, his brilliant grandson is secretly planning to use the same technology to infiltrate the world's most secure networks. But the scientific advances necessary to perfect the brain-to-computer interface are slow in coming, too slow for the aging founder of the Everlast foundation--who may die before realizing his dream of immortality--and too slow for his ruthless grandson, who will stop at nothing to attain the recognition that is his birthright.

Caught in the middle are Jake Bronson and his seven-year-old son, Alex, whose combined mental gifts might provide the key to leapfrogging the impasse.

When Jake's family and closest friends are simultaneously abducted in a globally coordinated kidnapping scheme, Jake is thrust into a frantic race that takes him from the canals of Amsterdam and the cobbled streets of Rome to the back alleys of Hong Kong and the South China jungles, where he must lever every scrap of his failing abilities to rescue his loved ones and crush a madman's plans to bring the world to its knees.
