It's a baffling case that leads Dr. Al Jackson to consult his colleague Dr. Mark Selby and propose a diagnosis of bovine spongiform encephalopathy. Unfortunately, America hasn't had a case of Mad Cow disease in five years and the patient is a vegetarian! The puzzling illness is but the first indication of a looming public health crises that will confound the best and brightest minds of the North Georgia Medical Center, as well as the centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Security Agency. Gerard Hansen's Neogenesis is a gripping fictional drama written with urgency and realism, recounting a high stakes search for the origins and pathology of a mysterious disease that could decimate humanity. Remarkable characters bring this exhilarating novel to life, anchored by Mark Selby, whose extraordinary talents in the lab stand in stark relief to the failings in his personal life. Joining Selby and Jackson is Megan O'Reilly, a workaholic idealist from the CDC, and chasing down leads on the national and international levels, Susie Michaels, a beautiful, but "tough as nails" operative for the NSA. As the hunt for the truth ensues, Neogenesis reveals the motive forces of ego, greed, and love at play in ways as destructive as the manifestations of the sub-virus prisons. Is science recklessly heading into areas that are not adequately understood? Can humanity be trusted to safeguard its continued existence? Neogenesis is a startling work of fiction hinting prophetically at unimaginable, cataclysmic realties that could easily come true.
