Dr. Velasquez longs to help the poor people of his native Ojinga, Mexico and especially the orphans. He’s nearly perfected, with the help of brilliant, formerly unpredictable Simon Orwell, a way to produce free electricity.
Simon brings the device to Ojinga for promised funding from the city council, only to learn Dr. Velasquez is dead, supposedly of a heart attack. The city council refuses funds, Simon intends to return at once to the USA, but someone tries to kill him.
He’s rescued by Pedro Marin, assistant town manager who hides him in the orphanage run by Dr. Harold Finch. Dr. Finch desperately needs money to keep the orphanage going.
Sophia Marin, Pedro’s sister and Dr. Finch’s assistant, hates Simon. She fears his presence in the orphanage will endanger the children.
The ‘good guy’ in the story is SO good, readers will quickly guess he’s the worst villain in the end. And anticipate how he will be revealed and caught. Readers also will know that vilified Dr. Clara isn’t the enemy she seems.
Simon is seeking forgiveness for his past. Sofia doesn’t want to love him. The plot twists and surprises will keep readers intrigued and satisfied with the ending.
I was given a copy of this book in return for my honest opinion.
