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.

Dan Lawson, a former government cyber-intelligence analyst, is surprised to be contacted by his estranged friend Stephen Bishop, a renowned geneticist. Stephen says that he’s discovered amazing information within DNA, including evidence of a creator, and needs Dan’s help to protect his findings. Dan is skeptical and wonders whether he is being manipulated, or if the recent illness of Stephen’s only child, Ava, has caused his childhood friend to fall back on religion for answers to questions best left to science. Spurred by his desire for proof that life has meaning, however, Dan puts aside his doubts and agrees to help.

When an experiment goes terribly awry, Dan realizes he must get to the bottom of Stephen's discoveries. With the help of Trish Alighieri, a pediatric oncologist trying to save Ava’s life, Dan desperately searches for answers—including whether the human soul can survive science’s conquest of nature.

    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.
