Seizing an opportunity to make a fortune in the cosmetic market, Gail smuggles plant clippings into the US and sways her apprehensive sister Fran to help seek financing for a shampoo she’s made with the Indonesian plant. But dreams of impending wealth are quelled by the shocking revelation of the shampoo’s horrifying side effects.Against a backdrop of career and money problems, shady competitors, legal challenges and romance, Fran, Gail and an exotic Indonesian scientist must race against biological, corporate and media forces to save Fran’s boss, and a legion of young women whose quest for beauty is transforming them in ways they never imagined.Testing human greed against forces of nature, The Scales of Six blends suspense, intrigue, and surreal circumstance to weave a new story about an old myth coming to life in the contemporary world.
