In the sunburnt deserts of eastern Turkey, archaeologists are unearthing a stone temple, the world’s most ancient building. When Journalist Rob Luttrell is sent to report on the dig, he is intrigued to learn that someone deliberately buried the site ten thousand years ago. Why?

Meanwhile, in London, a bizarre attack is baffling the police. When a weird killing takes place on the Isle of Man, followed by another in rural Dorset, DC, Mark Forrester begins to discern a curious pattern in these apparently random murders.

What weaves together these two stories is the Genesis Secret: a revelation so shocking it may threaten the social structure of the world. Only one man knows the secret, and he is intent on destroying the evidence before it can be uncovered.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shari | 2/14/2014

    " Got half way through this book before I couldn't read anymore of it. Just too much detail that grossed me out. If it wasn't for that I probably would have finished it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annette | 2/9/2014

    " Lot's of fascinating historical facts that are fun to look up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roxanne Galpin | 2/7/2014

    " Drawn out and far-fetched .... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Ann | 2/4/2014

    " For me this was a disturbing book; one that will guarantee I won't read my Bible the same way as in the past. When I went to Mr. Knox's web site I found that it appeared as dark as the book and didn't have the links mentioned in the body. It would be interesting to separate fact and fiction as the invidation suggested, but didn't deliver. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Carter | 1/28/2014

    " Great book! Really enjoyed it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carol Ann | 1/25/2014

    " Interesting premise with the inevitable romance. The torture/death scenes described here make waterboarding look like a picnic. It was too graphic for me and I was keen to finish it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mark Swanson | 1/22/2014

    " Great story and I love the information about the archealogical dig. A bit of warning, the murder scenes are gruesome and graphic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan B | 1/20/2014

    " Interesting read, the tortures were too graphic but the main characters made up for it. It was hard to put the book down and I most definitely wasn't expecting the twist. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mar | 1/19/2014

    " Written ok; characters were developed well. My issue was how graphic and just disgusting the sacrifices were. And I'm normally pretty good about this stuff! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynda | 1/18/2014

    " Just started to read and yes it has all the ingredients I want in a book... Secrets, Murder, religion, archaeological digs... I will eat each word up like a delicious chocolate cake. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Withnall | 1/15/2014

    " Great story with a thrilling twist at the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacia | 12/30/2013

    " Mmmmmm. Pretty much the same book and characters rearranged. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alicia | 11/29/2013

    " Great story, a little grisly at times (not for the queasy!). A fun read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Irene | 8/9/2013

    " A little too graphic details as to torture and not enough weight on saving loved ones. Did not like the journalist but really like both detectives from Scotland Yard and France. For a J Patterson/ Sanford readers this would be well received. I do like new authors and will read his next book, "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert | 2/9/2013

    " So far it is somewhere between a Clive Cussler and a James Rollins novel. I think it could go either way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen | 10/1/2012

    " So far, so good. The author and I started following each other on Twitter and he's a funny guy, but this book is a thriller/mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hasmik Amiryan | 9/17/2012

    " This was the oddest dook I've ever read, you'll like it, if you like history and archaealogy, but after all, everything was kinda weird!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nigel | 9/1/2012

    " Great read really fast paced could not put this book down read in about 10 hours bit blood thirsty in the middle but worth getting through to get to the end... would totally recommend this book.....can't wait to read Marks of Cain his next book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 2/10/2012

    " Had some interesting theories about the beginning of man and how religion is all a fake. I read it purely for entertainment and enjoyed it, but there are a few medieval tortures described. Some parts are not for the faint of heart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane Libson | 12/15/2011

    " If you liked Da Vinci code - this is great! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gin | 4/3/2011

    " Pretty good. Plot was slow in the beginning and didn't pick up the pace until after the middle of the book. Interesting story though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debra | 2/2/2011

    " Wow..incredibly mysterious and suspensful. Two stories going on at the same time that later tie together. *warning* the language is HORRIBLE..so it only gets two stars! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sandy | 1/18/2011

    " Kind of Da Vinci Codie, but not really. Very graphic and grusome. Not for everyone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 11/17/2010

    " Interesting and well written thriller-but warning for those who find graphic violence difficult to take. I was fascinated by some of the things this author used in his book, and found myself on the computer looking them up. he was correct everywhere. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robbie | 9/20/2010

    " It was an awesome book filled with violence and blood. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lfb_uk | 9/9/2010

    " A very clever weaving together of fact and fiction, the story is fast moving and very discriptive ( sometimes to much as the details of sacrifices will show)

    An added bonus is the aferwords by the author where he explains how he wove the story around the facts.

    A good read! "
