Beschreibung

New York Times best-selling author Daniel Suarez delivers an exhilarating sci-fi thriller exploring a potential future where CRISPR genetic editing allows the human species to control evolution itself.
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.

Vom Meister des Ci-Fi's und Thrillers

Spannende Storry mit viel detailverliebtheit und sehr interessanten Charakteren. Das Ganze dann von einem sehr gutem Sprecher vorgelesen. Brauche mehr von solchen Hörbüchern! 5 Sterne 😀

Best "Suarez" since "Daemoin"

Some 30 years down the road, privacy has become a thing of the past, and genetic editing of embryos a Trillion Dollar business. Ethical and legal edits heal genetic defects. But some parents want more...

Suarez' main character, whose fate we follow, works with Interpol and against an international biohacking cartell. Needless to say - he gets into a lot of highly entertaining trouble (entertaining for us, his opinion might differ). But that provides just a thread to Keep us involved: Suarez' real star is the highly evolved future world which reflects the consequences of leading-edge technologies, both in the biotech as in the computer field. Highly plausible as well as highly surprising - and Suarez delivers the details and implications masterfully.

The result is a highly entertaining science thriller - science fiction in the best sense, with a heavy emphasize on ideas. This audio book is filled to the brink with stuff worth thinking about, ethical and social condundrums by the dozen. While the future will certainly look different from what Suarez imagined - it always does, after all -, a lot of the issues and questions he sheds light on will hugely influence it.

A good thriller, well told, but first and foremost a superb reflection on what potentials our recent biotech discoveries hold.
