Altar of Eden, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


The fate of a new global terror lies in an ancient biblical mystery from the Book of Genesis...A breathtaking thriller from the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of MAP OF BONES and THE DOOMSDAY KEY. Louisiana veterinarian Lorna Polk stumbles upon a shipwrecked fishing trawler carrying a caged group of exotic animals, clearly part of a black market smuggling ring.

Yet, something is wrong with these beasts, disturbing deformities that make no sense.

They also all share one uncanny trait - heightened intelligence. To uncover the truth about the origin of this strange cargo and the terrorist threat it poses, Lorna must team up with Jack Menard, a man who has a dark and bloody past.

Together, they must hunt for a beast that escaped the shipwreck while uncovering a mystery that traces back to mankind's earliest roots...

Review by

A well constructed thriller using the theme of DNA modification of animals. It shows careful research behind the book. An easy read.
