Michael Halliday is doomed to hallucinations, psychosis and death within a year. Jared Felker conceives a project to give purpose to his friend's last days. As the project advances, Michael confronts questions basic to the human condition with a mind melting in a morass of misshapen proteins. What is human consciousness? A soul? Are they linked? David Hawke, the friend funding the project, fights for a merger to secure his company's future. Into this mix comes an iconoclast from California who is key to the project's final step and the merger. Jared's growing unease crystallizes when he discovers an audio diary Michael has left behind. Advancing the project by day and listening to Michael's voice at night, he must choose between a place in history for himself and a place in eternity for his friend.
Conscious Choices is a story of love and loss, loyalty and betrayal, hope and fear.
