(Jim & Carolyn Hougan)

The Genesis Code

Jacket Notes:  A phone call in the dead of night brings Joe Lassiter shattering news. His sister and young nephew have dies in a fire in their home near Washington, D.D. Yet Lassiter soon learns a chilling fact: His loved ones were brutally murdered before the blaze was set....

the mysterious suspect’s identity only raises more questions. Then Lassiter uncovers another crime--another innocent mother and child murdered. The more he unearths, the larger the web of conspiracy grows, as his search for answers leads him on a dangerous international chase toward a truth that will shock him--and the world--to the very bone...
