Hey this was really good! Picked it up on a whim and then read til the wee small hours. I halfway thought at first the book was a follow-on to some of the authors' novels about early human prehistory, but no--it was a contemporary mystery/adventure tale.

From back cover: When Veronica Tremain's brother is brutally murdered, both she and the FBI try to make sense of a bizarre conspiracy that seems to be targeting genetics professors. While searching for secret papers her brother told her about in his last frantic telephone call before his death, Veronica meets three other people on the run from his killers: Bryce Johnson, who had been working with her brother; Rebecca Armely, a former research assistant in the genetics program; and little Abel, Rebecca's son, an unusual but very lovable child whom Rebecca would do anything-including die-to protect. Then Rebecca is killed, shot by a sniper whose apparent target was the child himself. Now Veronica, Bryce, and Abel are on the run, trying to figure out why one small boy should be so important to a band of killers who seem unstoppable.

What a good read this was! Abel is a unique little boy whose existence seems to pose a threat to a number of people. The plot introduces us to a diverse group of characters and the authors lead the reader to an understanding of the world of anthropology that keeps the pages turning. No dull textbook this, the story grabs readers makes them part of the events as they transpire.
