9780099184126: The Genesis Code

Joe Lassiter is an ex-FBI investigator bent on revenge . His sister and young nephew have been murdered and the killer hospitalised. Despite warnings from the police Lassiter will stop at nothing to discover why. His search leads him to uncover an attempt by the Vatican to destroy all traces of a discovery that has sent them into such an alarm, that they have charged a right-wing fundamentalist hit-squad to rid the world of all evidence of it. The discovery originates from a confession in a remote village in Italy. A confession that sends the local priest into a panic and the Vatican into an uproar. The confession belongs to the late Dr Franco Baresi, and concerns the work at his fertility clinic - a fertility clinic that Lassiter's sister attended and, as he horrifyingly discovers, all the other victims in a recent series of murders that have swept the world. Women who were infertile until they attended the clinic. Lassiter must discover the remaining mothers before the hit men, and meanwhile his sister's killer is on the loose...

Review:

You'll probably guess what's behind the murders of mothers and their very young sons long before investigator Joe Lassiter does, but that shouldn't spoil your enjoyment of this exciting and thoughtful new thriller that mixes science and faith in with its action. Lassiter's own sister and beloved nephew are among the victims, who were all patients at an Italian fertility clinic run by a doctor with some unusual ideas about DNA. Why this catches the attention of a dangerous religious order, and whether Lassiter can save one surviving woman and child from their wrath, should take up a good part of your night.

From the Publisher:

I read Genesis Code in a very early form when I was trying to get some ideas for the cover. As a matter of fact, the editor would only give me the first few chapters of the manuscript, because the concept that the plot revolved on was a very "hot" one, and we didn't want any "leaks." I had to wait until the book was published to read every word. I certainly hope that my cover design and illustration actually managed to convey the thrilling and engrossing character of this very exciting novel!
