Reviews
"A thrill ride through the dangerous intersection where the human genetics revolution and aggressive big power rivalries meet." --Richard Clarke, former White House terrorism czar and New York Times bestselling author of Against All Enemies

"Genesis Code is both a high-octane thriller exploring what could happen if international politics drive the human genetic revolution and a compelling love story touching the core of what it means to be a good old-fashioned human being. Read this book and let the conversation about the future of our species begin." --Sanjay Gupta, CNN chief medical correspondent and New York Times-bestselling author

"Genesis Code is a highly original and thoroughly gripping account of a nightmare that may yet prove all too real. I read it in one sitting--I could not put it down. A thrilling tale written with heart-pounding authority."
--Kati Marton, author of the New York Times bestseller, Paris--A Love Story

"A spellbinding odyssey into our genetic future. Jamie Metzl is a supreme storyteller who entrances his readers with deep and surprising insights into science, politics, and the human condition."--Eric Garcetti, mayor of Los Angeles

"An old-fashioned hard-boiled thriller . . . Metzl knows his science, and the detail is elegantly done while the novel moves at a nonstop pace over 41 days. Metzl provides a believable look at a not-too-distant future where science, politics, religion, economics and the ability to report the "truth" are all inseparably bound together."--Kirkus Reviews

"Metzl offers up a tense vision of the near future with this science fiction thriller." --Publishers Weekly

"Metzl... has a strong command of the financial, political and bioethical questions at the heart of his fast-paced dystopian novel."--Washington Post

"The plot is stellar and well paced. . . . The science on the DNA enhancement research is fascinating. . . . Fans of sci-fi and mystery will definitely enjoy Genesis Code."--Portland Book Review
