Today on my blog I have the Mark of the Beast blog tour. On my stop there is a spotlight, review, and giveaway.
Mark of the Beast: A searing medical thriller by Adolphus A. Anekwe, a renowned doctor, about the ramifications of isolating a gene that causes violent behavior
Dr. Regina Dickerson is a Catholic physician in San Diego who has discovered that there is a certain genetic marker that indicates the carrier is prone to psychotic violence. Working on blood from prison inmates, her theory begins to prove itself time and again with violent offenders. The variety of crimes is diverse: one couple murders their children for organ money, another man kidnaps young girls to seduce and kill them, yet another has a penchant for cyanide.
As Dickerson's work begins to show results and catches the attention of the media, people begin to fear that witch hunts and Spanish Inquisition–style mayhem will result if forcible testing is carried out. Meanwhile, a race begins to find a cure. With science and religion at odds, Dickerson must find her own answers while trying to escape those who want to put an end to her inflammatory research.
This book is filled with so many twists and turns that I was on the edge of my seat the whole time and then add to that the plot had me going what if this really could happen and what that would mean for our society as a whole. It’s pretty scary but I love when an author can bring that kind of emotion out of me and still have me thinking on it days after I am done. I am definitely adding Adolphus to my must buy list. 4/5 Bloody Fangs
