THE SKELETON SCORE
The death of a child is every mother’s worst nightmare. But Lily Barrington soon discovers the brutal murder of her daughter Rachel was not just a simple homicide. Rachel, Lily learns, was the subject of an elaborate genetic experiment – an experiment that created both the exotically beautiful, exceptionally gifted singer that was her child… and the composition Rachel released to the world the day she was killed. A composition that contains within it a power that could literally change the world.
Deep within the hidden recesses of Washington D.C.’s National Archives, Lily unearths centuries-old documents that hint at the nature of that power. She is shocked to find clues suggesting it is woven into the very DNA of a select, secretive group of individuals: her own family, the Barringtons. That power has made the Barringtons extraordinarily wealthy and influential – and has enabled them to direct mankind’s affairs since medieval times. Rachel’s song unwittingly released that power to the world.
The fight to control it sets in motion a globe-spanning chase that soon draws in not only other members of the Barrington family – including Lily’s estranged husband Henry, a brilliant scientist who has been working to recreate the Barrington’s power through technology he calls MEND –but Rachel’s fans as well. A chase that brings Lily face to face with both bloody, terrifying death… and the promise of new life.
Because contained within Rachel’s song… within the power that is Lily’s family birthright… is the secret that can enable her daughter Rachel to live once more.
The MEND Saga:
THE SKELETON SCORE
As in the Harry Potter franchise… the Twilight novels… the X-Files… the SKELETON SCORE instantly plunges audiences into an alternate reality… a world that seems exactly like our own… until the secret order behind it is revealed.
The SKELETON SCORE is the first novel in a planned five-book series introducing the MEND concept and the Barrington family to readers.
Imagine a future where music carries information… a world where blockchain technology conceals not cryptocurrency but knowledge… where the key to untold power lies within a song…
That world is our own. That future is now.
Introducing MEND™ – a revolutionary concept more than a decade in the making, a concept that operates at the intersection of science and science fiction… in the universe of story, and in the here-and-now of our own world…
Based on concepts developed by acclaimed, award-winning composer/author Mardi-Ellen Hill (a Wall Street Woman of Note, a 2-time NEA Award Winner, recipient of a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and numerous other honors), MEND is built from the ground up to take specific advantage of new digital storytelling platforms as well as traditional media. Replicating Henry Barrington’s device is but the first of many ways MEND can operate in the real world. This encode/decode technology is available for deployment across a multitude of consumer/provider platforms.
