World-renowned scientist, Professor K knows he’s close to a ground-breaking discovery. He also knows he’s dying. With his last breath he anoints Dr Alexandra Delacroix as his successor and pleads with her to carry on his work. Delacroix unwittingly enters a dangerous world of unbridled ambition and greed that threatens to destroy her. Desperate and alone, she turns to celebrated author and journalist, Jack Rogan.
Alistair Macbeth, self-made billionaire and enigmatic founder of Blackburn Pharmaceuticals, has a murky past. He knows he must secure Professor K’s discovery for his empire, or perish. Powerful and ruthless, he will stop at nothing to achieve his dark and deep desires.
Meanwhile, when the parents of a famous rock star, Isis, are brutally murdered, Jack Rogan is asked to investigate.
On a perilous journey of discovery that takes them around the globe, Jack and Lola Rodriguez—Isis’ resourceful PA—join forces with Jana Gonski, a former police officer; Dr Bettany Rosen, a tireless campaigner for the destitute and forgotten; and Tristan, a gifted boy with psychic powers. Together, they expose a complex web of fiercely guarded secrets and heinous crimes of the past that can ruin them all and change history.
Will Rogan succeed? Will the dreams of a visionary scientist with the power to change the future of medicine fall into the wrong hands, or will his genius benefit mankind and prevent untold misery and suffering for generations to come?
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
I wasn’t disappointed as this superbly written adventure took the reader on a thrilling journey from the intrigue of ancient and modern civilizations to the wonders of medical science and the field of genomics. A well crafted, superbly researched story indeed!
This book continues to live up to the high standards of the author in engaging the reader with adventure, history, travel and crime. I could hardly put the book down! Readers will find this book to be an eventful novel with many “twists and turns” which will captivate your interest until the thrilling conclusion.
Gabriele Farago carefully weaves a medical thriller connecting each character and occurrence carefully; his plot is excellently planned. The multiple story lines are not confusing but rather come together seamlessly and at times surprisingly.
Gabriel’s development as a thriller writer is evident in “Professor K”, with the plotting tighter and the storytelling more direct. He continues to give us the fruits of his intensive research, which lends the story a refreshing degree of authenticity. Looking forward to see what trouble the incorrigible Jack Rogan can get himself into, and how he weasles himself out of it, in the next book.
An amazing read! Gabriel takes you on another enthralling journey. He has you wondering throughout how or even if the different facets relate and what is fiction vs real. Brilliantly he brings it all together at the end, but not just this book!

About The Author
From Budapest to the Blue Mountains; a writer’s journey
As a lawyer with a passion for history and archaeology, Gabriel had to wait for many years before being able to pursue another passion—writing—in earnest. However, his love of books and storytelling started long before that.
‘I remember as a young boy reading biographies and history books with a torch under the bed covers,’ he recalls, ‘and then writing stories about archaeologists and explorers the next day, instead of doing homework. Whilst I regularly got into trouble for this, I believe we can only do well in our endeavors if we are passionate about the things we love; for me, writing has become a passion.’
Born in Budapest, Gabriel grew up in post-War Europe, and after fleeing Hungary with his parents during the Revolution in 56, he went to school in Austria before arriving in Australia as a teenager. This allowed him to become multi-lingual and feel ‘at home’ in different countries and diverse cultures. Shaped by a long legal career and experiences spanning several decades and continents, his is a mature voice that speaks in many tongues.
Gabriel holds degrees in literature and law, speaks several languages and takes research and authenticity very seriously. Inquisitive by nature, he studied Egyptology and learned to read the hieroglyphs. He travels extensively and visits all of the locations mentioned in his books.
‘I try to weave fact and fiction into a seamless storyline,’ he explains. ‘By blurring the boundaries between the two, the reader is never quite sure where one ends, and the other begins. This is of course quite deliberate as it creates the illusion of authenticity and reality in a work that is pure fiction. A successful work of fiction is a balancing act: reality must rub shoulders with imagination in a way that is both entertaining and plausible.’
Gabriel lives in the Blue Mountains in Australia just outside Sydney, surrounded by a World Heritage National Park.
‘The beauty and solitude of this unique environment,’ he points out, ‘gives me inspiration and the energy to weave my thoughts and ideas into stories which, I sincerely hope, will in turn entertain and inspire my readers.’
If you like historical thrillers, excitement, mystery and suspense, if you enjoy exotic settings, colorful characters and fast-paced action, if you like to learn about interesting, well-researched subjects that tease your intellect and imagination, then once your step inside, Gabriel will show you his world; the world of the storyteller.
Shaped by a long legal career and experiences spanning several decades and continents, his is a mature voice that speaks in many tongues.
A writer like Gabriel, sees the world through a different lens. Using creativity and imagination, He endeavors to weave fact and fiction into seamless stories that have only one aim: to entertain you.
