In this, John David Krygelski's third and perhaps most powerful novel to date, he creates a spine-tingling story of suspense, drama, and intrigue. After the only child of the President commits suicide, President Walker proposes an institution where people who have lost all hope may enter. Aegis, intended to be a civilized alternative to suicide, is built and opened.
There are only two rules in Aegis: No communication is allowed between the outside world and those who enter, and once individuals go in...they can never leave. With the absence of any staff, Aegis is ruled by anarchy and the entrants must create a new society.Twelve years pass and what began as a noble social experiment has turned into a hideous nightmare, fraught with controversy and public outrage.
In response, Elias Charon is selected by the new President to be the first to enter Aegis and be allowed to leave. Ostensibly sent in to investigate the claims of abuse, a darker and heinous personal motive arises. With pulse-pounding suspense, The Aegis Solution takes the reader through a twisting, turning plot to an explosive and electrifying climax.

Good idea but tails off
John Krygelski always has some good and original ideas but his books have a tendency towards too much exposition and often smugness. I always feel his books would benefit from some more editing.
Yes, always original.
