Publisher's Summary

A breathtaking novel from the author of Re-Engineering Humanity, one of The Guardian's Best Books of 2018. 

The year is 2154. Kate Genet, a renowned geneticist, suddenly confronts the mysterious death of a bio-mod couple's newborn while visiting a maternity ward. The shock rattles her, awakening long forgotten memories and suppressed fears. Determined to figure out what actually happened, Kate is catapulted on a quixotic and dangerous adventure in a world where engineered harmony cannot eradicate basic human conflict.

Critic Reviews

"A toweringly good first novel, with echoes of Brave New World, but searingly relevant to our digital, genetically engineered age, and where it could well lead in this and the next century. Frischmann develops his female protagonist with a masterful hand, and invests his narrative with shocks and surprises in a world that slaps us in the face with its dangerous similarity to ours. Truly science fiction of the finest calibre, and highly recommended." (Paul Levinson, author of The Silk Code and The Plot to Save Socrates, and President of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (1998-2001))

"Brett Frischmann writes like a mad scientist, altering the code of life to elicit new thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. His novel is an experiment conducted on our brains and hearts, to condition us for the future." (Joshua Cohen, author of Book of Numbers)

Better than l expected

Well this was surprising, the story out lived my expectations and also came to an interesting end.
The storyline was involved and at times told from differing characters so more perspective was obtained. The narrator's did a good job and overall l recommend this book.

Enthralling World

Shephard's Drone is a delectable adventure that took me on a journey across a dystopian America. The author introduces us to 2 intriguing, yet inverse civilizations; the technology obsessed "Comp-mods" who have near transcendence due to their computer integrated minds and the "Bio-mods" who moved on from genetically modifying corn and started enhancing their own babies DNA to create super-athletes and geniuses. I would love to see more stories written into this brilliant world!!
