Drugged and abducted while standing on a crowded train platform, Kenneth Durand, an Interpol agent working against black-market labs that perform illegal embryo augmentation, awakens to discover he has been genetically transformed into his most wanted suspect.
"On a crowded train platform, Interpol agent Kenneth Durand feels the sting of a needle-- and his transformation begins. In 2045 Kenneth Durand leads Interpol's most effective team against genetic crime, hunting down black market labs that perform "vanity edits" on human embryos for a price. These illegal procedures augment embryos in ways that are rapidly accelerating human evolution--preying on human-trafficking victims to experiment and advance their technology. With the worlds of genetic crime and human trafficking converging, Durand and his fellow Interpol agents discover that one figure looms behind it all: Marcus Demang Wyckes, leader of a powerful and sophisticated cartel known as the Huli jing. But the Huli jing have identified Durand, too. After being forcibly dosed with a radical new change agent, Durand wakes from a coma weeks later to find he's been genetically transformed into someone else--his most wanted suspect: Wyckes. Now a fugitive, pursued through the genetic underworld by his former colleagues and the police, Durand is determined to restore his original DNA by locating the source of the mysterious--and highly valuable--change agent. But Durand hasn't anticipated just how difficult locating his enemy will be. With the technology to genetically edit the living, Wyckes and his Huli jing could be anyone and everyone--and they have plans to undermine identity itself"-- Provided by publisher.

Fast paced sci fi thriller with an interesting concept. What are the ramifications of gene editing and where are we heading when technology takes over the workforce? Good to ponder.

A fast-paced thriller that takes place in the year 2045. It's fascinating to see how the elements of our society play out 27 years from now - climate refugees, fewer jobs, ubiquitous drones, gene editing, etc. A great recommendation from a Koelbel patron!

Oh wow! Major letdown! Sorry Mr. Suarez has been giving Ted talks as his book reads like one. [Loved Freedom and Daemon, but his later books seem to be getting worse and worse!]
