Description - The Killing Gene by E.M. Davey
The latest page-turning thriller by E. M. Davey, author of popular novels Foretold by Thunder and The Napoleon Complex. The Killing Gene is an unputdownable, heart-racing thriller that propels us from Africa to Poland and places across the globe in search of the sinister origins of mankind. A young archaeologist disappears without a trace in the Congo basin. Professor Randolph Harkness goes in search of her only to stumble across more than he ever expected, discovering a conspiracy to conceal ancient horrors lost to the passage of time. Assisted by troubled tearaway, Ross McCartney, Harkness must escape from spies and trained killers bent on keeping this secret buried deep in the past - if it were to get out the world would never be the same again. With myth, archaeology and hard science as his searchlights, Harkness illuminates the obscurity of prehistory, but what awaits him at the end of this harrowing journey into the savage heart of human nature? With a father-son relationship at the heart of this character-driven, action-packed novel, Harkness and McCartney reveal the story of our species, the paradox of the modern mind and our innate predilection for murder...
