Contingency is a novel about a group of American scientists tasked by the federal government to research and develop unexplained advances in human evolution. We've learned we can do more. Similar to the advances in technology over the last few decades, these men have realized human beings can advance themselves organically as well. The trick? True belief. Some think we are getting closer to becoming gods, and others well, they think we might be gods already.
Once the cat is out of the bag and the General in charge of overseeing the compound realizes the scientists' potential for combat, a diabolical scheme is hatched. Action ensues from the first chapter as characters are revealed and their newfound abilities are explored. The huge cast of characters and events play out in real time as the fate of the free world hangs in the balance and the book keeps you on the edge of your seat.
"I've put my heart and soul into creating something amazing and I hope it shows. My favorite authors are Stephen King and Lee Child. What I'm looking forward to doing is introducing reading to a new generation of individuals who get most of their reading done on their phones. If I can make something cool enough, remarkable enough, this might just be a jumping point into reading and writing for not just young people but maybe others who've lost their interest in fiction novels. For those who are tried and true "constant readers" well for you, I would like very much for this book to be on your list of favorites." - Jake Cole

"As for the men I see seated before me, I regret to inform you of your failure in our program."

"I started writing 'Contingency' years ago. I've picked it up and put it down more times than I can count! A novel is so much different than a screenplay. There are many more hurdles an author has to jump through to get that story cohesively on paper. I'm excited now that my debut novel is finished and I can finally share it with the world." - Jake Cole

“But if the two countries or governments are at war, the men of science are not. That would, indeed be a civil war of the worst description: we should rather, through the instrumentality of the men of science soften the asperities of national hostility.” - Humphry Davy
