In this epic thriller, a secret with shocking consequences is buried deep in the Middle Eastern desert

A remarkable discovery has been made in the far reaches of Kurdistan. A Western archaeological team has unearthed the oldest human civilization-older than the Pyramids and Stonehenge. Sent to cover the story is war reporter Rob Luttrell. He's just survived a Baghdad suicide bombing and wants only to return home to his child. What began as a fascinating assignment quickly turns dangerous as the site is sabotaged and someone is murdered.

Meanwhile, a Scotland Yard detective is fast on the trail of a series of grisly killings in the British Isles. As he attempts to unravel these elaborate acts of violence, he discovers there may be a link to the site in Kurdistan. The secret to both is an origin and a bloodline that will challenge everything the modern world knows about the origins of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.

A debut thriller of spectacular sweep and brilliant turns, The Genesis Secret is sure to keep fans of Douglas Preston, Kate Mosse, and Raymond Khoury reading through the night.

I would avoid this one. The plot is interesting, fairly well written, and well-researched historical context. HOWEVER, the level of graphic violence is way above my tolerance level. I'm not overly squeamish, but found it offensively grisly.

While the characters and dialogue are reasonably well written, the plot is quite compelling. Two different stories converging into one; the first involving an archeological dig in Kurdish Turkey, the second a series of ritualistic murders in the UK. Great story, entertaining read. Just watch out though, there are a few parts not suited to the squirmish or faint-of-heart.
