About this title

Synopsis:

A new Novel by Craig Reed, Uncovers the Truth The long awaited novel from bestselling author W. Craig Reed. Based on six years of genetic, historical and psychological research, Reed s new thriller plunges readers deep into the most controversial topic of our time: Intelligent Design or Darwin s Evolution? Exploring the topic from an entirely new angle, Reed has infused DNA with accurate and intriguing details obtained from numerous technical, military and historical sources fostered over the past three decades. As evidenced from the first high altitude page, Reed also brings to bear his own military experience as a decorated SEAL-trained Navy Diver. While weaving interesting facts into a fast-paced thriller, Reed compels us to continue turning pages until the very end where he brings us face to face with our true genetic identity. And our genetic destiny. Malcolm Boyes, former associate producer for Entertainment Tonight, states that, DNA is an enlightening and terrifying journey into the impact of the discovery made by one of the most baffling personalities in history. Based on six years of solid research, it s a riveting story that will compel you to read the other books in the series. Just after the Gulf War, Ensign George Anders parachutes into Iraq with a Navy SEAL team to hunt down Fahkir Kaseem an impassioned fanatic bent on continuing his own private war against the West. After finding evidence that Kaseem has commandeered a group of Russian scientists and bio-weapon production equipment, George is thrust into a battle between two opposing forces that each have their own agenda for the future of mankind, and have manipulated world events for centuries to fulfill their plans. During a brutal encounter, Russian bio-scientist Annelia Salenski is taken captive by Kaseem who plans on exploiting her expertise in genetics. She soon discovers Kaseem s true agenda one that involves using a terrifying technology developed by the Soviets during the Cold War. A technology that could alter the definition of what it means to be human. Racing against time to rescue Annelia and prevent Kaseem from unleashing the most horrific genetic weapon imaginable, George comes face to face with his true identity and unravels an astonishing truth behind a discovery made by an eighteenth century scientist a man that Voltaire once claimed knows everything and never dies. Through the words and formulas recorded by this enigma from the past, George discovers the answer to the most important argument since the dawn of man: Intelligent Design or Darwin s Evolution? And the proof is hidden in the twisting turning bundle of phosphate atoms that determine the destiny of life. DNA has nothing to do with DaVinci or his code, but will appeal to Dan Brown s audience of 70 million readers that seek thrillers containing shocking and enlightening spiritual truths.

Book Description:

A group of American soldiers tracks a maniacal terrorist in possession of a biochemical weapon.

Ensign George Anders is positioned at the front of a global crisis in this military thriller set during the first Gulf War. Fluent in multiple languages and versed in Army intelligence, Anders is less experienced in the field of combat. He'll need to employ his skills to track down and detain Fahkir Kaseem, a dangerous terrorist intent on methodically destroying the West with a genetic weapon. Aiding Anders is a team of battle-hardened soldiers, warriors ready to provide access to any secure site he needs. At the same time, across the Middle East and into Eastern Europe, the other half of the story unfolds. Russian scientist Annelia Salenski, feeling at fault for a laboratory accident, is charged with stealing the only existing plans for this devilish bio-weapon. Little does she realize that her colleagues, intent on fleeing a crumbling Russia, will later become her enemies in this global drama.

The weapon in question is a compound called Satan's Sister, which combines two vicious filoviruses that not only work in tandem, but cancel each other out once released, thereby avoiding detection. But this combination of smallpox and the Marburg virus is not a weapon in the conventional sense--it actually alters its victims' personalities according to a pre-established formula, thereby calling into question how humans evolve and what is truly predetermined. This main premise--the debate about evolution and intelligent design--seems overambitious, and the story could be just as enjoyable as a conventional action-adventure. The Navy SEAL team that Anders joins is stocked with stereotypical characters, but Reed brings them to life through vivid physical descriptions and realistic dialogue, absorbed during his time in the military. The Cold War setting might feel dated to some readers, but the story neatly segues into a chilling present. Readers in the know will remember that the Soviet Union performed research on similar compounds for use as weapons, which makes this story all the more compelling.

An all-around enjoyable novel for fans of medical, military or global-espionage thrillers.
