The Killing Gene (Paperback)E.M. Davey (author)
OUT OF AFRICA, INTO DARKNESS...
When an archaeologist goes missing in the Congo basin, Professor Randolph Harkness and young tearaway Ross McCartney go in search of her – only to stumble upon a conspiracy to conceal ancient horrors lost to the passage of time. Evading spies and trained killers, can they expose this cover-up? Or will they be buried with it?
An unputdownable thriller, The Killing Gene reveals the story of our species, the paradox of the modern mind and our innate predilection for murder...
Publisher: Duckworth Books
Dimensions: 198 x 129 mm
'With all the twists of a double helix, The Killing Gene is as thought-provoking as it is action-packed. Davey’s writing is punchy, yet lyrical, delving deep into the distant past of humankind, questioning what makes Homo sapiens unique and what the future might hold for the one race on earth that has inherited The Killing Gene.’
‘Gripping, shocking and thought-provoking: a dispatch from the front line where ancient history meets modern nightmares. E.M. Davey has been to some of the wildest places on Earth, and it shows. This will keep its hooks in you long past the final page.’
‘In an epic adventure stretching from the jungles of the Congo to the valleys of Tajikistan and beyond, The Killing Gene blends exceptional research and a keen observation of human nature to create a captivating and intelligent adventure novel. Featuring a tenacious hero who must unravel a menacing conspiracy if he is to reveal the truth to the world, this is another stunning thriller from E. M. Davey.’
'A thriller with a truly thought-provoking premise. A real page-turner.'
