Sci-fi techno thriller set in a climate change wracked, near future. Ayden Walker, a young environmentalist is shocked to learn that his parents had been involved in illegal genetic experimentation, years ago. But what he learns next, shakes the very foundations of his existence.
Investigating, he stumbles across something that could change the future of the human race if he can’t stop it… except he’s not so sure he should.
It becomes clear though, that someone has him under surveillance, someone who doesn’t tolerate interference. He’s forced to seek an uneasy alliance with military intelligence as he hunts for the truth.
Then Ayden discovers that his adversary will kill to keep his secrets.
‘Intervention: The Pandora Virus’ asks, ‘what if…’
We’ve been engineering human DNA for decades. What if, right now, behind a veil of commercial secrecy… a group of scientists are taking it further than anyone realizes?
What if – long before any big sea level rises – heatwaves, drought, and crop failures start to bite into the world’s food and water supplies?
What if the UN has to keep revising its population forecasts upwards?
And what if someone decides to do something about it?
I loved this book.
It’s intelligent, and so plausible it’s scary. I found the characters interesting, and the story compelling.
I highly recommend it if you’re into science/thrillers. I look forward to reading the next installment.
