George Galen is a brilliant scientist, a pioneer in gene therapy. But Galen is dangerously insane. He has created a method to alter human DNA, not just to heal diseases but also to “improve people”: make them stronger, make them able to heal more quickly…and make them compliant to his will.

Frank Hartman is also a brilliant virologist, working for the government’s ultra-secret biohazard agency. He has discovered how to neutralize Galen’s DNA-changing virus. Now he is the one man who stands in the way of Galen’s plan to “improve” the entire human race.

This taut thriller takes the listener a few years into the future and shows the promise and danger of new genetic medicine techniques.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Erin | 2/17/2014

    " I love Orson Scott Card! This was a medical mystery, a different genre than he usually attempts but really fun and fascinating. I couldn't put it down. "

    " I read for fun and usually not too critically so this review is simple. I enjoyed the subject matter. The story held my interest although I was aware that it was not written by Card but was an adaptation of his short story. So I went in with my eyes open and with few expectations which might be why I enjoyed it more than most. "

    " I wish I had noticed that this was only co-written by Orson Scott Card. The story was interesting, but the writing was choppy and uneven. I felt like I could tell when a novice writer took over. The characters just OK. I didn't love or hate them. Still it was a fun summer read, but I can't recommend it. I read the Kindle version and I'm not sure if this problem is a problem in print form, but the editing of this book was horrible. There's nothing that pulls you out of a story worse than incorrect spelling or misplaced punctuation. "

    " Ok read, I felt like the biology was a little too far fetched for me to get into the book as much as I would have liked. "
