I really enjoyed this book and would categorize it as a thriller. Though it had bits of ethics, biotechnology, and romance thrown in, it really was more about the adventure than anything else. The ethics were dealt with in the most superficial way, the biotechnology was horribly simplified and important steps were altogether eliminated, and the romance seemed forced, but the adventure ... The adventure was fabulous. This is basically a story of someone protecting the entire human race while doing amazing feats of survival, as almost every adventure story is. It turned out, to me, to be a page turned and a book that I finished in only a week.

If you happen to like adventure/thrillers and even like a hint {and I truly do mean just a hint} of science mixed up in your literature, you won't do wrong to check out this book.

Pretty good thriller about a pharmaceutical experiment gone out of control. Interesting twist regarding who/what the real villain is and good use of the New Mexico desert as the chase setting.

Really love these books. True thrillers, page turners and escape lit. One of the best without Agent P.
