OK story, reminded me of Andromeda Strain. It's a beach book, not much substance, but it was entertaining.
I was only able to download a partial recording of this book, very disapointed in the lackof concern in emails (unanswered) and phone calls. I don't regard this website as trustworthy.

Start this book in different spots and you may wonder what this book is about. You might think it is a western, or a story about mad scientists, or the evils of genetic engineering, or about cyber-space. It is about all these things and I thought the authors did an excellent job of putting it all together. I liked most of it and I believe there is something in here for everyone. I also enjoyed that they kept you guessing on who the bad guys where. There is intelligent conversation and there is suspense and action.
I am an entertainer...so I spend a lot of time on the road. I take my audio seriously. I appreciate great writing and outstanding narration.
Looking for a protracted potato chip read? This is it. Easy to listen to...pleasing characters and a few wonderful moments. Overall an interesting book. No surprises...no new ground broken. It is exactly what you are led to expect from the synopsis.
I found this book interesting, exciting, gripping, and entertaining. The topic is appropo and fortuitous given the high interest in gene therapy; the plot posits a set of entirely plausible if alarming circumstances that will capture your imagination and keep you awake at night. This is one book you will find difficult to put down. Making this book one of the better reads I have had the pleasure of experiencing is the performance by Mr. Colacci. His rendition adds to the very gratifying experience of listening to a great work.
A good story, well read but the sound quality was so poor I often had to undock my Garmin and reposition it near my ear, even with the volume at 100%. Really disappointing.
Ithought a book by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child should be pretty good and the premise seemed topnotch. While the premise remained top notch, the writing was abysmal. Actually, the author of the blurb about the book was much better than the book. Within mere pages it became way to obvious what was going to happen and how. There was one nice twist at the end of the book, but overall just predictably boring.
Good pace, up to date story line will keep your interest. The twists the story takes will keep you guessing, the ending is unique.
