It is midway through the 21st century.
Dr Kevina Paul, the oldest person in the world dies at the age of 137. Who was she? What was the secret to her unique combination of longevity and good health?
A journalist (the narrator of the story), in looking for the answers to these questions from her life, realizes that Kevina’s life experiences were diverse and spanned across many lands and people and he ultimately finds some of the answers.
Kevina, as a senior executive for a high tech multi-national corporation based in Toronto, Canada, was a renowned authority in global aviation systems. During the course of her duties in a far-away land she uncovered a complex cyber-terror and thwarts the launch of a cyber-attack. The global airspace management system would have been threatened with disruptions, caused by the cyber-attack, with international safety implications. Kevina with help of a colleague prevented the potential catastrophe from occurring and in so doing, she and her colleague prevented an associated national coup. She and her colleague then escaped from the country to safety.
Her escape took her to another world and during her survival from an air crash she discovered the fountain of youthfulness and longevity buried deep within herself. She went on to live longer than any human did in recorded history.
The author draws upon his background in aviation and his research in longevity to layout the story plot. He tried to remain within the believability envelope while stretching the boundaries of plausibility ever so slightly.
