Publisher's Summary

It is the smallest of anomalies. A tiny error lurking in Bob Ludlow’s DNA that could have untold consequences for civilization. Dr. Barry Gifford hopes that understanding this genetic error could provide revolutionary advances for humanity.

Bob believes in Barry and his vision for the future. The two men team up to solve the mystery of Bob’s genetics and to develop a drug based on this inborn error. Unfortunately, in the cutthroat world of medical research, altruism doesn’t always take precedence over money or ego.

Dr. Dexter Brunswick, a bitter man with a tough past, is strangely jealous of Barry’s accomplishments. Yet he needs Barry’s research to unlock the treasures hidden in Bob’s genetic code. Unlike Barry’s noble intentions, Brunswick’s plans are more sinister. 

Detective Kevin O’Brien suspects that Dr. Brunswick has committed past murders and has singled out Barry as his next target. Kevin begins following Barry as Brunswick directs his mercenaries to force both Bob and Barry to comply with his plan. He is intent on not only destroying Barry’s medical career but making society pay for the indignities he has suffered.

Great Thriller

If you want to listen to only one medical thriller this year listen to this. It has great character development and narration. It follow 3 brothers, Dexter, Bob and Kevin all separate at birth into their adulthood. There are twists and turns in this thriller and can tell it was written by a doctor. My favorite characters were Bob, Dr. Barry Gilford and Kevin. Highly recommend this new medical thriller by new author, he up there with Michael Palmer. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. THANK YOU!

A gripping thriller and medical story

Think Tom Clancy with a bit of House mixed in. So what happens when a unique error, a twist of fate, creates a hiccup in a persons DNA. What will the drug companies do to have the key that that error can create? What if any limits won’t they cross? Yet, without the resources of those same companies can the good that can be done with that knowledge be unlocked and developed? Deals with the devils will lead to a rollercoaster of danger that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Enjoy.

Inborn error could mean so many things

If your Robin Cook fan than this book is for you. Three brothers seperated at birth with inborn errors that was not discovered until later in life. This book is more than medical thriller it goes in espionage, murder and science fiction. A lot of medical jargon about DNA xy and xx chromosomes. A lot of twists and turns, I feel like the story just ended without an ending.
The narrator David Bosco did an excellent job on this book and the many different voices.

Good read, ahem, listen...

Good read, ahem, listen if one enjoys fictional stories, especially ones with highly unlikely or unusual plots, combined with a good dose of actual ( I can’t validate all the “science “ as factual but I knew the majority of it was based on actual medical science) current medical science (like me).
My complaints are few; mainly, I wish the ending had an epilogue or hadn’t left me feeling the story ended abruptly. My other issue was not feeling i got to know and understand the characters a little deeper. Perhaps more story about Dexter and his disdain for the world, perhaps more history about the parents of the triplets and the dispute between the brothers prior to the birth of their children.
I’m definitely not complaining about experiencing this book, I was fully entertained for hours and wasn’t overwhelmed by unnecessary characters. The book was well worth the listen!

A Genetic War

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I was enthralled by this book right from the beginning. The fate of triplets was decided with their first breath that catapulted them into lives so different that the mere chance of reuniting was a miracle in itself. The upbringing of the three brothers plays an important role in their psychic development. Their genius is apparent as are the physical differences within them. A quirk of nature creates genetic differences within brothers that is at the heart of this medical thriller. The twists and turns of events are quite complex and for most of us the medical jargon might be a little too complex, but it's a tribute to the intensive research that went behind the creation of this fascinating book.
The narration was excellent, a fact that we have learned to appreciate from the talented David Bosco.
An audiobook I definitely recommend.

Shades of Robin Cook!

A new medical thriller, well-narrated by David Bosco, this story has an interesting plot, compelling characters, and totally unusual theme of triplets separated at birth who have unusual genetic codes. Point of view shifts were somewhat hard to follow in the narrated version. I have noticed this sort of thing before where the change of medium needs a bit of bridge to handle things that are often managed with visual clues. But I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent listening to this book.

Love thrillers like this

I love books where I THINK I know what twist is coming, but the author surprises me anyway. This is one of those awesome books. I found the story easy to follow, and one of those books that made me wish I had a longer commute, and wishing for me traffic!

Narrator David Bosco was especially entertaining, making the voices distinctive. I want to check out what else this author has written in the hopes of discovering some other great thrillers. Highly recommended if you're seeking a modern day Robin Cook.

Great Medical Thriller touched by Murder

A great medical thriller that twists and turns and also digs into the human condition; the pitfalls of greed, jealously and ego in the world at large. The pages keep turning with a solid murder mystery and determined detective to unlock the truth. As usually, David Bosco's narrative abilities shine as he brings this book to life. A great read!

Unique, mindbending, and complex.

Unique and a little mindbending, this was a complex story with a host of multi-faceted characters. While it was necessary to explain intricate genetics concepts, the scientific jargon was slightly overwhelming. I enjoyed the history of the character's childhoods and the major twist that genuinely surprised me at the end. David Bosco gave a pleasant, professional narration which enhanced the story and the character's emotions. Overall a good read!
