Book Review: Miracle Man by William R. Leibowitz

Miracle Man
By William R. Leibowitz
Genre:  Thriller (medical/conspiracy/psychological)


The victim of an unspeakable crime, an infant rises to become a new type of superhero.  Unlike any that have come before him, he is not a fanciful creation of animators, he is real. 

So begins the saga of Robert James Austin, the greatest genius in human history.  But where did his extraordinary intelligence come from?

As agents of corporate greed vie with rabid anti-Western radicals to destroy him, an obsessive government leader launches a bizarre covert mission to exploit his intellect.  Yet Austin’s greatest fear is not of this world.

Aided by two exceptional women, one of whom will become his unlikely lover, Austin struggles against abandonment and betrayal.  But the forces that oppose him are more powerful than even he can understand.  

My Review

An abandoned infant quickly grows into an intelligent toddler and swiftly into a record-breaking genius. His foster parents knew he was special, but had no idea how intense his little mind was working until nightmares began happening. 

I had mixed feelings while reading this story. I was pulled in because Robert is such a unique individual, but it was also sad to see how much he suffered because of this strange gift. While being a genius is wonderful in its own right, the author introduces us to a plot that may make us think otherwise. While at times stressful, I was intrigued to find out what would happen to Robert Austin. I think fans of psychological thrillers should check this one out. 

Author Bio 

William R. Leibowitz has been practicing entertainment/media law in New York City for a number of years.  He has represented numerous renowned entertainers and many entertainment and media notable companies.  William has a Bachelor of Science degree from New York University (magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa) and a law degree from Columbia University.
William wrote Miracle Man because of its humanistic and spiritual messages and because he feels that in our current times--when meritless celebrity has eclipsed accomplishment and the only heroes are those based on comic books, the world needs a real hero--and that, of course, is Robert James Austin, the protagonist in Miracle Man.
