SPOTLIGHT: The Killing Gene by E.M. Davey @eddavey1 @duckbooks

The Killing Gene
by E.M. Davey

Spotlighting E.M. Davey's The Killing Gene today.
Coming to you from DUCKWORTH PUBLISHERS, this thriller that takes you across the world is chock full of action and will keep you on your toes.

The Killing Gene is an unputdownable, heart-racing thriller that propels us from Africa to Poland and places across the globe in search of the sinister origins of mankind. 

A young archaeologist disappears without a trace in the Congo basin. Professor Randolph Harkness goes in search of her only to stumble across more than he ever expected, discovering a conspiracy to conceal ancient horrors lost to the passage of time. Assisted by troubled tearaway, Ross McCartney, Harkness must escape from spies and trained killers bent on keeping this secret buried deep in the past – if it were to get out the world would never be the same again. With myth, archaeology and hard science as his searchlights, Harkness illuminates the obscurity of prehistory, but what awaits him at the end of this harrowing journey into the savage heart of human nature? 

With a father-son relationship at the centre of this character-driven, action-packed novel, Harkness and McCartney reveal the story of our species, the paradox of the modern mind and our innate predilection for murder…
