Quelle est l'identité du mort ? Et pourquoi

Overview

De la découverte d'un cadavre mutilé aux profondeurs de la jungle d'Afrique équatoriale sur les traces d'une espèce de primates proches des humains, l'auteur de Contagion, Invasion ou Toxine nous mène une fois encore aux frontières de la science et de l'anticipation.
Quelle est l'identité du mort ? Et pourquoi certains de ses tissus révèlent-ils un code ADN défiant toute règle biologique ?... Le mystère conduira Jack Stapleton, le médecin-légiste, et sa collègue Laurie Montgomery jusqu'à une organisation médico-scientifique plus soucieuse de profit que d'éthique. Des procédés qui sont peut-être d'ores et déjà mis en oeuvre dans la réalité...

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The ever-popular and prolific Cook (Fatal Cure, Audio Reviews, LJ 9/15/94) sets his latest medical thriller in Equatorial Guinea, Africa. Dr. Kevin Marshall worries that he has traded his ethics for a gleaming futuristic lab. Meanwhile, stateside, Dr. Jack Stapleton, a forensic pathologist, is deeply troubled by an unidentified body that is missing various parts. Jack and his colleague, Laurie, identify the corpse as that of a Mafia kingpin, and their investigation leads them to Africa. Narrator Boyd Gaines is superb. The producer, however, would do well to abandon the tiresome and distracting sound effects that serve only to lend an old-time radio feel to the production. Missing are end-of-side cues prompting listeners to flip or change tapes. For popular fiction collections.Terrill Persky, Naperville, Ill.
