A bizarre rash of gruesome murders in London that vaguely suggest human sacrifice and a major archeological discovery in the Kurdistan desert ... What could they have in common? Reminiscent of Raiders of the Lost Ark but flavored with today's Middle East tensions, this novel grabs your attention and holds it to the thrilling conclusion.

This novel contains no fluff, but courses back and forth between the grizzly London murders and the political unrest of the tiny desert villages of Kurdistan unearthed by the controversial archeological dig called Gobekli Tepe. Rumors of curses and death prayers, demons and unholy secrets that, if made public, will shake the religious fiber of the modern world.

An intense and entertaining read.

The Genesis Secret is an intense and engaging read. It's a little disturbing that the best-drawn character is the psycho killer. The other characters are mostly fill-in-the blank. Definitely a plot-driven book. Be warned that there are scenes of intense gory violence and mind-boggling cruelty.

to much GORE, I found it disgusting. Historical facts in the book are good and interesting. Found it hard to finish book.

Interesting plot-I liked how the two story lines didn't seem like they were going to connect, but all the story lines came together at the end. Very timely, considering the location.
