Please read the headline again! If it does not deter you from looking at reviews, GO BACK, and READ IT AGAIN! These reviews are "Spoilers" not expose yourself to them BEFORE you get a copy of this STUNNING BOOK and read it for yourself. AGAIN....the most of the reviews here are "SPOILERS" for reading the book yourself....DON'T ROB YOURSELF OF THE HEART-THROBBING SUSPENSE of reading this book yourself. I devoured it in about 4 hours, and when I finished I felt like "My God, what am I going to read now?" And I have a corner of my living room with 5 stacks up beyond my waist to read, but nothing "appealed" to me after reading's like I needed another "adrenalin fix" and none of my books looked like they contained one! TRUST ME, BUY a COPY, and READ IT, then read these reviews!!! You're gonna LOVE THIS BOOK! ~operabruin

Amazing thriller

Anyone who writes a bad review for this book must have read it with one eye closed, because this was one of the best books that I have ever read. It starts out with a bang and keeps you guessing until the very end. You know this person did something, but it isn't revealed until about 200 pages into the book, and even when it is that isn't the end. For anyone that loves mysteries, this is a book that I couldn't put down until I finished it.


I couldn't put this down! The genetics remind me of "Jurassic Park" in a way, but in a more probable way. I've read it several times and every time I pick up something new and interesting. It's a great thriller, even after you know what is going on. It definitly makes you wonder if this is even a possibility, and which side you would be on if presented with a situation like this one. I would recommend this to anyone. And, if you enjoy this, read "Angels & Demons" by Dan Brown. Enjoy!


LADIES AND GENTLEMEN: A review of the submitted reviews will show a marked difference of opinion on this work. I have read the book twice and listened to it on tape once. My opinion remains unchanged. It is an original plot of unusual quality and extremely well written. I highly recommend that you read the book and make up your own mind. And then by all means, write a review of your own.

A wonderful thriller that is hard to put down

John Case provides an excellent mixture of suspense and intrigue in this biomedical thriller. Spining an intricate web that connects science, medicine, religion, and murder, he guides the reader through a thrilling maze of characters, questions and secret agendas that lead to a surprising conclusion. The first few chapters set the stage as an old village doctor's confession to the parish priest sets in motion a deadly chain of events. Case leaves the reader to wonder what was so disturbing about the doctor's confession, dropping clues along the way to tease the readers curiosity. Each clue, like a piece of a puzzle allows the reader to get a clearer picture of the long as the reader can put the pieces together! Yet, it is not until the final chapter that the pieces finally come together to provide the staggering answer to the puzzle. Case's knowledge of investigation provides a vibrant touch of reality to the novel, which is supplemented with thorough knowledge of religion and science. The book is also packed with action, intrigue and suspense. As a result, the book is able to raise interesting questions about science, religion, and ethics while giving the reader an adventure of a thrill ride. It is almost like a mixture of Jurassic Park, James Bond, and religion. As a theologian, I am considering using it as a case text whenever I teach a class in science and religion. Definetely a must read.
