Jon McGoran: Splintered

Join us for the second installment in Jon's Philly-centric series. after Del's death, Jimi wants to pick up the pieces of her life and move on. But she's become a public figure in her defense of chimeras, and she can't quite shake the spotlight--or her suspicion that she's being followed.

When her friend Dr. Guzman, a chimera sympathizer, is arrested for the murder of a chimera wearing a strange medical bracelet, Jimi does some digging--and eventually discovers that Howard Wells, the venal businessman
and proponent of the Genetic Heritage Act, is supporting a hospital that ostensibly provides healthcare for chimeras.

After teaming up with friends Rex and Claudia, Jimi learns that the hospital is actually a cover for an extensive mining operation that retrieves metals needed to operate WellPlants, the computerized brain implants that only the super-rich can afford--and which have made Howard Wells millions. When Jimi realizes that the perilous mining is being done by captive chimeras, she risks her own life to shut down the operation--and incurs the wrath of one of the most powerful and dangerous people in the world.
