JJ Cook & AJ Cook
An insomnia pandemic is sweeping the globe, leaving people unable to function and society on the brink of collapse...
Dr. Cooper Delaney believes he has the answer: Noctural, a new sleep-aid—one with absolutely no side-effects—which in early testing shows 100% effectiveness.
The only problem is, it doesn’t work. With no warning. No explanation.
Unable to accept the drug’s inexplicable failure and unwilling to concede to the competition, lines are crossed, ethical boundaries are pushed to the breaking point, and disturbing realizations come to light that could completely unravel civilization as we know it… and throw into question humanity’s place in the universe.
A jetset medical thriller meets sci-fi adventure with an unforgettable cast of characters, Percivious Insomnia presents an alternate history so compelling that it could possibly be true. The first book in the Percivious Trilogy from husband-wife author duo JJ Cook & AJ Cook, MD, Percivious Insomnia sets a unique and original course for fiction of the future, and paints a timely, prescient portrait of today’s globalized society… and what may exist beyond the realm of our current understanding.
JJ COOK & AJ COOK, MD attribute the creation of this novel— the first volume in the Percivious Trilogy—to the marriage of their unique skills and perspectives.
JJ Cook’s background in marketing across a spectrum of industries (including technology, finance, and the arts) brings insight and depth to characters spanning an array of disciplines, ages, countries, and cultures.
AJ Cook, MD’s current role as chief of pediatric urology at the Alberta Children’s Hospital has allowed him the opportunity to author and contribute to numerous published studies, honing his writing skills, while his experience as a surgeon — as well as the relationships he’s developed with his young patients and their guardians — has contributed credibility and realism to the narrative.
They hope this novel—and trilogy—shines a light on something the world seems to have forgotten: altruism, and its impact on society. “Something that needs a voice now more than ever but also a platform where it will be heard.”
