The facts behind the fiction.
In 2001 scientists isolated the gene for regenerating damaged organs from the DNA of a South American flatworm. Within five years it had been spliced into the chromosomes of a rhesus monkey, transported through the cell walls by a retro-virus denuded of its own genetic material.
Attempting to regrow impaired or elderly tissues, a scientist will one day modify the DNA of human beings by injecting the gene-carrying virus. It is just a matter of time.
Before consenting to treatment, you may want to ask a simple question: could there be a situation in which you would want to die but were unable to do so?
Journalist Hendrix 'Aitch' Harrison links bodies stolen from a renowned forensic-research lab to an influential drug company.
Aided by Sarah Wallace, a determined and beguiling entomologist, he delves into a grisly world of clinical trials and a viral treatment beyond imagining.
But Aitch must battle more than his fear of technology to expose the macabre fate of the drugged victims donated to scientific research.
I haven’t read a really good horror book in quite some time. I thoroughly enjoyed this one!
I loved the way it flashed back and forth. It really kept me on my toes. Some points you are viewing the story through the journalist’s eyes. At other times you are looking at it through the eyes of the entomologist. And still at other times, you are looking at it through the eyes of the creature. I don’t want to call it more then that because I don’t want to give away any of the plot.
This was one book that I did not want to put down. If you like psychological thrillers, horrors, or any other such genre, then hurry up and get this book. You will not want to miss it!
