Leonardo Murphy

A Coming-of-Age Thriller

You just launched a satellite into space without a rocket.

You took a $1,000 gift from your father and turned it into $1,600,000 in two years after you read a book on stock trading.

You invented a computer algorithm that writes novels.
You?ve just entered Harvard University on a full scholarship after completing high school in two years.
Not bad for a 12-year-old kid.

Leonardo Murphy, age 12, changed his name from William to Leonardo to honor his hero, Leonardo da Vinci. Young Leonardo, with the second highest IQ ever recorded, just launched a satellite into orbit using a helium balloon and a small jet engine he bought on eBay.
Among his many projects, he read books on stock trading. At age 10, he took a $1,000 gift from his father and turned it into $1,600,000 in two years.

Realizing that he could easily become an insufferable obnoxious brat, he heeded the words of his beloved great-grandfather, Ezekiel Murphy, who was also a genius. ?Don?t be an a?hole,? grandpa Ezekiel told him. Leonardo always recalled those words?and tried to obey them.

At the urging of his father, a high-level FBI Agent, Leonardo is hired as a consultant to the FBI. Using his software design skills, Leonardo wrote an algorithm that tracked down the world?s most dangerous gang, MS-13, enabling the FBI and local law enforcement to end the gang?s activities.

Leonardo is fascinated by Artificial Intelligence. While a freshman at Harvard University, at age 12, he designed a computer program called Jane Austen, that could write 10 novels a month.

At age 20, Leonardo received a Ph.D. in physics from Harvard. Shortly after that, he entered the Navy to follow in his parents? footsteps as a naval officer.

After he left the Navy, Leonardo, now 25 years old, met a beautiful young woman named Janice Reynolds and fell madly in love. They married a year later. By that time, Leonardo had become a fabulously wealthy multi-billionaire from his stock trading and patent royalties. Janice loves to teach at a nearby private college. When the college hits financial problems and is about to close, Leonardo buys the school.

Janice loved to say, ?My husband used to be a cute little nerd. Now he?s a tall, handsome, rich nerd.? Janice and Leonardo, who she calls ?Lee,? collaborate on various secret projects with the CIA and FBI.
But their activities with law enforcement and intelligence put a target on their backs. They narrowly escape four assassination attempts, including one on their honeymoon cruise. It was then that Leonardo discovers that his sweet, pretty wife knows how to use a gun.

Leonardo and Janice, despite the dangers, love to help law enforcement. They admit to themselves that they enjoy being spies, or spooks. They even bought a Golden Retriever and named her ?Spook,? Whenever he?s hired as a consultant, Leonardo insists that Janice be included. ?We?re a package deal, a twofer,? he would say to any official who objected to Janice working on top secret matters.

After one of their adventures, Leonardo looks forward to getting back to a normal life. But then he realizes that they don?t lead a normal life, so why bother.

Leonardo Murphy is a breathtakingly fast coming-of-age thriller about one of the most fascinating characters you will ever meet in literature. Instantly you are a shoulder to shoulder with the world?s most amazing genius.
