Description

John Ordell, a young scientist, moves to Washington, DC with the goal of working in biotechnology using the cutting-edge gene editing innovation called CRISPR. He is transformed from a humble PhD student to a trail-blazing entrepreneur, drawn into a scheme driven by greed, corporate espionage, high finance, and international intrigue. John, his enabling cohorts, and a computer programming prodigy, set out on a path to change humanity by using artificial intelligence and CRISPR for their own financial benefit. But will their advancements fall into the wrong hands? Will money and power corrupt to unleash the incredible power of CRISPR? Find out in this thriller about technology which can enhance the traits of individuals and ultimately dictate the direction of the human race. The science described in the book is real, frightening and easily misapplied. Can human nature and humanity survive this new era of ReEvolution?

“In this fast paced novel the intersection of academics, corporations, finance, personal greed, international politics and technology collide around the use and misuse of crispr technology to artificially manipulate the human genome. The book moves us from Washington to China as the storyline weaves a trail of deceit and triumph. Characters are recognizable and flawed but I couldn’t help rooting for or young protagonist to prevail.” Amazon Reader.
