    Guy Carson is a brilliant scientist at GeneDyne, one of the world's foremost biochemical companies. When he is transferred to Mount Dragon, GeneDyne's high-security genetic engineering lab, his good fortune seems too good to be true.

    Carson soon finds that it is. He learns that GeneDyne geneticists are tinkering with a common virus with an eye on the enormous profit to be had from a cure for the flu. Their cure involves permanently altering DNA in humans. What's more, Mount Dragon harbors another secret that puts the world at horrifying risk.

    This was my first book by Douglas Preston and I truly enjoyed the great story line and the character development. I didn't want the story to end!

    Story

    In a cave high in the Alps, a renegade anthropologist discovers a frozen Neanderthal couple with a Homo sapiens baby. Meanwhile, in southern Russia, the U.N. investigation of a mysterious mass grave is cut short. One of the investigators, molecular biologist Kaye Lang, returns home to the U.S. to learn that her theory on human retroviruses has been verified with the discovery of SHEVA, a virus that has slept in our DNA for millions of years and is now waking up.

    Paul Krasner says: "Really good science fiction"
    "Save Your Money"
    Overall

    The author clearly lost his way about midway through this book. I don't know if he lost interest or decided to change direction but it was obvious and ruined the story. No more Greg Bear for me!

  • Freedom (TM)

    Story
    (3186)

    In a world of conflicted loyalties, rapidly diminishing human power, and the possibility that anyone can be a spy, what's at stake is nothing less than human freedom's last hope to survive the technology revolution.

    James says: "wow - a must read"
    "Augmented Reality!"
    Overall

    Daniel Suarez did a fantastic job with his first book Daemon and then the sequel Freedom. Although Freedom does stand by itself, it is a much richer experience if you read Daemon first. You just lose too much of the story if you don't.
