What happens when your own government is the enemy? Scientists at Stanford University accidentally stumble upon evidence that the moving images on television and computer screens can cause brain cancer. On the other side of the world, Japanese scientists are separately arriving at the same conclusion. They warn of an AIDS-like epidemic. As the death toll from Unexplained tumors begins to mount, an incorruptible U.S. Senator from the state of Vermont sponsors a bill to ban TV and other screens. Senator Mario McGuire is targeted by a shadowy group of ruthless people in government and business who will stop at thing to keep him from succeeding. The battle between these opposing forces keeps tightening the tension until the final scene. Screen is current and timely, speaking of government secrecy, religious wars, and the aridity of pop culture. Written by a former Homeland Security employee, it will keep you turning pages late into the night.
