In a remote hill town in Italy, a renowned scientist enters the confessional. A dying man, he pours out the secret that has consumed his life for years - a sin of such magnitude that the shocked priest refuses him absolution.

In a suburb of Washington DC, Joe Lassiter's only sister and her young son have been killed in a sudden fire that engulfs their home. The police believe it was arson; they soon discover that mother and child were brutally murdered before the blaze was set.

As Lassiter tries to find out why they were killed, he comes to believe others may have been murdered in similar fashion. And still more people may die if he cannot discover the elusive connection that links the innocent victims together.

    " Was hooked from the very first chapter. Couldn't put it down. If you like the DaVinci Code, you'll love this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bree | 2/8/2014

    " This was just OK for me...it wasn't really what I was expecting and a lot slower paced than I usually like for this type of story. I saw quite a bit of it coming ahead of time, although the end "why" behind it all did surprise me. It wrapped up quickly and a little bit too easily, thought. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie | 2/8/2014

    " Wonderful book (and I relearned forgotten knowledge in genetics). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne-Claire | 2/7/2014

    " Thriller scientifique "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mandy | 2/5/2014

    " This was the DaVinci code before Dan Brown wrote it. An excellent recommendation from my manager at Waldenbooks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 2/4/2014

    " Preceded the DaVinci Code, and dwarfs it as a suspense novel. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carie | 1/30/2014

    " Lots of language. Too long. Weird plot, with aspects of the story possibly stolen from Da Vinchi Code. (although I think this was published first.) Skip this read. I didn't even bother to finish, but did skip to the end to find out the lame ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel | 1/27/2014

    " John Case's writing style interweaves the likes of "Dan Brown's" historical intrigue and "Michael Crichton's" cutting edge technology and leaves you with great books like "The Genesis Code" that are impossible to put down. Ever since I read this book,I always pick up his next one when it comes out. He's an addictive writer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ummi | 1/19/2014

    " Intriguing this book is. The whole Jesus-cloning thing is kinda genius. Fast paced and definitely interesting, this one is a must-read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tracey | 1/9/2014

    " A fun, cheesy, predictable "thriller" that is perfect beach-reading... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mailmanr5 | 1/2/2014

    " Excellent first novel. Figured most of it out just before revealed. Moves along nicely. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy Einarson | 12/29/2013

    " I loved it. A great mystery from the start with a slightly cheesy end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kara Young | 12/12/2013

    " Loved it, very suspenseful, always on the edge of my seat... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charleen | 12/7/2013

    " This was a really entertaining story, the first I've read of this author (who is actually two authors, a husband-wife writing team). The end was a little hokey, but minor quibbles aside, it was a very good book. I will definitely be reading other John Case novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rae | 12/3/2013

    " A fairly decent biomedical thriller in which a scientist/theologian discovers the key to totipotency (or genetic differentiation). By isolating nucleated DNA from religious relics and implanting it into women he attempts to recreate God in man's image. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 L.J. | 12/2/2013

    " Right up my alley! Love the mystery and intrigue. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gretchen | 11/12/2013

    " Interesting concept and pretty well written. Language rated R. Not sure about the biological possibility but the ethics of the thing are interesting to think about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vanessa | 9/17/2013

    " I picked this book up at the airport on my way to my honeymoon, and just loved it! Lots of intrigue and just a fun read. Not as heavy as some other thriller/mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate Irwin-smiler | 5/27/2013

    " This was slow starting, but pretty engaging. I had to read the ending twice to get it all. (and then I went back to the beginning to piece that in.) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike | 11/22/2012

    " Awesome, Case is most definetly the King of Fiction ;-) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sean | 11/6/2012

    " good story but developed tooooooo slow for a really good ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mie and Gareth | 11/5/2012

    " Another gripping read from Jim and Carolyn Hougan. Sometimes the hocus pocus science and religion contained a bit too much detailed bunkum, but it was a rip-roaring roller coaster from start to finish. Second time round read for me and it's still good stuff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Candace | 10/15/2012

    " love these books written by a former journalist and his wife under the pseudonym "john case". good investigative, globe-trotting mystery. could not put it down. people/children killed, FYI, but has a similar premise to ira levin's "the boys from brazil" - but that's all i'm gonna say. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Malcolm | 9/5/2012

    " An enjoyable thriller which traverses the familiar territory of religiously inspired conspiracies with just a hero to save the world. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaret | 8/19/2012

    " A great book that presents a conspiracy theory on religion with a scientific twist. Very entertaining that I did not want to put the book down. I enjoyed this book more than the popular DaVinci Code. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt Montgomery | 5/17/2012

    " This book reminded me a little of the DaVinci Code. Good pace, nice twists, solid characters. Very enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 jessica | 3/18/2012

    " Not as popular as The Divinci Code, but a very good thriller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kris | 3/14/2012

    " It was hard to put it down but a little predictable. Still, there I was still reading at 2:00 in the morning. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 8/22/2011

    " If you like conspiracy books based on science conflicting with religious views this is a good story for you. Lots of graphic violence. Fast moving and entertaining read. Far right Catholic group are the bad guys in this novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane Clavette | 8/2/2011

    " Frightening, thought-provoking, shiver inducing. Church and science clashing to bring back memories of old childhood fears of the destiny of sinners. Getting to know the players happens easily, the writing an A+. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arch_angelic | 5/2/2011

    " for me this is not a bad page turner book, though I'm not thinking to put it in my collectable shelf. ^_^ "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gregory | 5/1/2011

    " Predicted the ending from chapter 2. Finished it out of pity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie | 2/22/2011

    " Wonderful book (and I relearned forgotten knowledge in genetics). "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nathan | 2/21/2011

    " I was expecting a biomedical thriller, as is claimed on the cover. 158 of 467 pages in and no BIOMEDICAL anything. I feel ripped off. I think I'll finish off a chapter here and there just to get through it, but it definitely does not do justice to the claims. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy | 2/11/2011

    " Absolutely brilliant book, loved every minute of it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/9/2011

    " The premise of this book was VERY interesting. I read it over a decade ago, but if I remember correctly it was a bit rough on the language and violence at the beginning ( I think). I liked this book, but something about it made me not decide to read more by this offer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 CynthiaA | 1/22/2011

    " This was an excellent suspenseful story, fast-paced and full of twists and turns. Better than the DaVinci Code, in my humble opinion. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sandyboy | 12/10/2010

    " got halfway through and fell asleep. couldn't get into this one at all "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 12/6/2010

    " a fun read
    a bit bloodthirsty, but typical of its genre
    well written
    a very good read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 8/24/2010

    " A good fast read. If you liked Da Vinci Code, you would enjoy this book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carie | 8/19/2010

    " Lots of language. Too long. Weird plot, with aspects of the story possibly stolen from Da Vinchi Code. (although I think this was published first.) Skip this read. I didn't even bother to finish, but did skip to the end to find out the lame ending. "

    " I didn't really get into the book from the beginning so I didn't finish reading it. I liked his other book better about the american indian scientist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 6/28/2010

    " This book reminded me a little of the DaVinci Code. Good pace, nice twists, solid characters. Very enjoyable. "
