The Enigma Series adds the 3rd techno-thriller volume, The Enigma Ignite, which has the world’s biggest powers competing for superiority. It’s not larger weapons or greater numbers of soldiers that top their wish lists. Instead, it’s the latest and greatest technological advances: nanotechnology, dynamic programming algorithms, and drones, working together to build the next generation of military communications.
When a professor at a Texas university begins researching ways to improve animal husbandry and boost global food supplies, her results catch the eye of inquisitive engineer Keith Austin Avery—whose interests have nothing to do with solving world hunger.
As Avery works on potential new uses for this technology, his research draws the attention of a powerful terrorist group, with traumatic results for him and his subcontractor Eilla-Zan Marshall.
Now it’s up to the members of the R-Group to find the terrorists and their captives, using all the data and analytics at their disposal to leverage each and every piece of information.
The fast-paced third installment of The Enigma Series has R-Group’s Jacob Michaels working closely with a powerful and talented team—with results that incorporate a satisfying balance of technology, surprisingly sensitive romance, and the blurred lines that surround the age-old conflict between good and evil.

We have several animals highlighted in the series, but Franklin was introduced in this volume.
Su Lin is a key character in this story that explores chip technology, animal husbandry, and some of the relevant research projects on wearable versus embedded technologies. We leverage Franklin for this and his amazing relationship with Su Lin.
Let us know if you enjoy this match up and how they progress through the story to its hopefully surprising conclusion. We would enjoy your feedback!
The Enigma Ignite
Franklin was his typical docile self, and as usual, he was interested in the goings on of others. Some of his social skills were unpolished, but his friendly nature made up for the minor indiscretions he committed now and again. While he was part of the group, he just didn’t quite fit in with the others and so he tended to wander off muttering to himself. He always became alert and very attentive when Su Lin came into view. Her voice was soothing to his ears, and he seemed to hang on every word she offered. Theirs was a unique relationship of give and take, but that was to be expected from a research animal, specifically a 135 kilo pig.
