    Meet Alan Dyson, a research scientist experimenting with the longevity effects of a newly discovered bristlecone pine tree gene. He thinks he's being watched and followed. He's right. When his secret formula is stolen, and all notes are wiped from his computer, his friend--the firm's computer programmer--secretly tracks the thief to a P.O. Box in Zion, Iowa.

    Story
    What disappointed you about The Methuselah Gene?

    I was looking for a scientific thriller and this was neither very scientific nor much of a thriller. When the book ended and and another started, I couldn't even tell that the book was over. Very disappointing listen.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something by an author I already listen enjoy. Sometimes you try a new author and it works out - sometimes it doesn't


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was o.k. It was the plot that was completely lacking


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom - hours of boredom spent hoping the book would turn around and get to an interesting part.

    In this fast-paced story, a treacherous path from Scarpetta's past merges with the high tech highway she now finds herself on. We travel back to the beginning of her professional career, when she enlisted in the Air Force to pay off her medical school debt and found herself ensnared in a gruesome case of what seemed to be vicious, racially motivated hate crimes against two Americans in South Africa.

    Terry says: "once again angry"
    "This series just keeps getting worse..."
    Overall

    I haven't enjoyed this series through the last few books, but hoped this would be as good as the initial few books, but this was not even close. Another disappointment. I will not be fooled again.

    New York Times - best-selling author Robin Cook returns with another ripped-from-the-headlines medical thriller, where DNA science, biotechnology, and religion collide.

    "Worst book I've aquired from audible"
    Overall

    I have over 300 books in my audible library. There are only two that I didn't finish. I wish this had been the third. There were several (odd) different story lines that barely intersected, and there was no ending to speak of. Wish I could have that credit back...
