EQUITY of EVIL – The Construction of a new Medical Thriller based on True Events
By Rudy A. Mazzocchi

As a start-up entrepreneur in the medical device industry since the mid-80s, I’ve been privileged to have the opportunity to see the newest innovations in healthcare and work with some of the most brilliant researchers, scientists and physicians in the industry throughout the world. It’s allowed me to witness technologies that could easily be viewed as “science fiction”, ranging from controversial developments with embryonic stem cells to designing the first electronic, auto-focusing implantable lens for inside the eye; (for the Terminator or the Six Million Dollar Man – depending upon your generation)! 

Logging in millions of miles on numerous airlines, while chasing new technologies and the proper funding to move them forward, provided me long hours to read hundreds of novels. It finally got to the point where the written stories were less exciting than the brutal and thrilling reality of what I was facing on a daily basis. 

While on a cruise with my wife, refusing to check out another novel from the ship’s library, I made an off-handed comment that “I would rather write one than read one”… and she challenged me to do so. I was amazed how easily the initial chapters flowed across the screen of my laptop, the majority from the foundation of personal experiences and related business opportunities. Stepping back, objectively, and re-reading my own words, I struggled with how to define what I just wrote. Scouring my bookshelves, I pulled out a copy of Robin Cook’s first novel “COMA”. A medical thriller… that was it… I decided to see if I could write my own.

It was therapeutic and the process was very similar to establishing a new company. Starting with a design concept, the research, development, manufacturing, and then striving to get it to the market… it was second nature. I had no expectations, until it became a finished product. Then I had to “do what I do” and attempt to make it as successful as possible. So with a Literary Agency, Publicist and Publisher all in tow, the readers will now decide if EQUITY of EVIL is worth reading or something that stimulates others to go “write their own”! Regardless… the second novel is well underway and I’m enjoying the process all over again.

BLURB:
Equity of Evil is the debut Medical Thriller by Rudy A. Mazzocchi. This bold novel involves some of the world's oldest and most emotional—therefore controversial—issues, including abortion, human trafficking, and the pirating of human organs. At the core of each matter is man's predisposition to control and take ownership of the human spirit for the sake of profit and personal gain. The reader is dragged through a dark and brutal new world where life becomes the equity of evil.

Book description:

A Venture Capital Fund makes a risky investment to start a challenging new business that appears capable of reaching profitability with modest capital requirements. The real challenge: optimizing one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures in the world — abortion.

Founding Partner, Roman Citrano, a successful entrepreneur turned venture capitalist, soon struggles with what he believes is his choice to establish the controversial new company. He soon realizes that he and others are but pawns on a massive, ugly chessboard being manipulated to benefit a far larger, illicit market in human organs for transplantation. Unknowingly, prime, hyper-enriched organs are spawned from the aborted fetuses and grown like hydroponic vegetables.

An unfolding world of deceit, rape, human trafficking and assassination becomes deeply personal as Roman's sole love interest secretly uses one of his new abortion services to terminate her untimely pregnancy. When she disappears, his frantic search becomes a hellish nightmare that grows worse by the hour.

Based on true events, this bold novel involves some of the world's oldest, most emotional and controversial issues. At the core of each matter is man's predisposition to control and take ownership of the human spirit for the sake of profit and personal gain. Such control and manipulation over the will of others is the most horrendous equity of evil.
