The newest scientific field of study is synthetic biology: the implanting of the DNA of one organism into another life form. Already this has led to miraculous cures.
However, there is a dark side as well. A brilliant geneticist, Jonah Devlin, CEO of Evolution Industries has infused Neanderthal DNA into the Marburg virus. And, using his desalinated water and lab-grown meat as a conduit for the virus, he will infect the entire population. People will devolve to a previous state of nature, and that is Neanderthal.
Kelly West, a beautiful woman scientist who works at Evolution Industries brings the plot to Paul Decker’s attention. Paul must not only keep this woman alive to find a cure, but stop a man protected by a President who is dependent on the campaign contributions and social and environmental successes of Evolution Industries.
But who is the evil…modern man who usurps the world’s resources and pollutes the planet, or Dr. Devlin who will populate the Earth with a species that lived in harmony with nature?
