The Killing Gene

A heart-racing adventure into the dark heart of human origins

When a young archaeologist goes missing in the Congo basin, Professor Randolph Harkness and troubled tearaway Ross McCartney go in search of her only to stumble upon a conspiracy to conceal ancient horrors lost to the passage of time.
Evading spies and trained killers, can they expose this cover-up in time or will they be buried with it? An unputdownable thriller, The Killing Genereveals the story of our species, the paradox of the modern mind and our innate predilection for murder...

My thoughts
For a thriller it starts out slowly but the more you read the more it pick ups and the story starts to come to live . And you can tell that the author put a lot of time and effort as well energy in doing the amount of research into linguistics, prehistory, anthropology and the classics , which makes this story even more  interesting by bringing to life various theories around these subjects while cleverly weaving them into his characters lives , in some ways it was like I was reading something James Rollins or even Michael Crichton would write , as well as Dean Koontz , with that said I want to think Netgalley for letting me read and review it .
