Publisher's Description

A scientist’s claim that he’s found the secrets of the universe’s origin encoded in DNA sparks a race against time to uncover the truth in this fast-paced thriller of science and faith, power and murder, loss and redemption.

Former government cyber-intelligence analyst Dan Lawson receives a call from his estranged friend Stephen Bishop, a renowned geneticist, who claims to have discovered astounding information encoded within DNA, including proof of God’s existence. He wants Dan’s help to protect his findings and continue his work. His daughter Ava’s life may well depend on it.

When Stephen is found dead under dubious circumstances, Dan investigates and discovers that the search for a cure for Ava may have driven Stephen to desperate alliances. With the help of Dr. Trish Alighieri, Ava’s pediatrician, Dan gets closer to finding out the truth about what may be hidden in our DNA—and what that could mean for humanity. But he and Trish aren’t the only ones trying to get their hands on Stephen’s findings. Cunning and powerful forces vie for access to the data that promises to unlock the secrets of life.

It’s a race against time as Dan and Trish tackle some of the biggest questions humanity faces: Who are we? How did we get here? What’s our destiny? And can the human soul survive science’s conquest of nature? Ultimately, Dan isn’t sure whether he, and the world, is better off not knowing...

    This review was written for The Soul of the Matter.
    This book has a unique storyline, and it is one worth reading. It communicates to us a very challenging subject but he does it so well. It is not pretentious it is enjoyable and very entertainable. This keeps you on your toes for example, "All Dan could think about was the surprise that kept coming and he wondered what possibly could be next." Well that is what I kept doing and so will you that's for sure. It grabs you by the collar and pulls you at record speed all the way to the end and you don't stop until you get there not even for a pit stop. It is intense and rightly so. I enjoyed every second of the ride and so will you.
