Overview

What begins as a simple arrest soon propels Detective Rick Dietz into a bizarre case involving recombinant DNA, the altering of a man's mind, personality and murder. Dietz is introduced by his girlfriend, attorney Beth Hamilton, to Professor Ken Gormund. The sparks fly as the two find they are competitors not only for Beth but also at opposite sides of the law. Gormund is the director of a research facility in Cincinnati and his research has led him from altering ordinary dogs and cats into faultless animals to kidnapping a young thief named Nat Jiminson. Gormund changes his DNA using himself as the perfect model. All seems to be going well until the virus mutates. Jiminson develops violent episodes which become too much of a risk for Gormund, who decides to kill Jiminson. But he escapes and in the process takes Beth as a hostage. Dietz, who was working on the missing person case tracks him to the research facility. What he finds is Gormund's dead assistant and a deadly threat left by Jiminson. Now Dietz and Gormund must join forces to save Beth, but can they outwit a man who has the IQ of Gormund and the street smarts of a thief?

Editorial Reviews

Ed Simoni
Joe Niehaus is an excellent writer. I recommend this book for everyone who enjoys police/mysteries. His detailed descriptions in the book make you feel like you're right there with "Dietz". His real life knowledge of police life makes it even more real.

Check out Niehaus' other work especially, "Beware the Whale's Wake".

Keep up the good work Mr. Niehaus and GIVE US MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gail Huber
A timely murder mystery taken from the pages of modern science. In an age where scientists are unlocking the secrets of the human genome, Joe Niehaus weaves a fantastic tale of ambition and suspense. How far will man go to create the perfect mind/body and at what cost?

Fade out once again reminds us how the powerful and ambitious will justify any means, particularly at the expense of the weak, to achieve their ends. Should anyone become an unwilling or unwitting laboratory experiment?&l
Paul Markowski
This is a fascinating, fast-paced, impossible-to-put-down, timely novel that blends science-(maybe not-so) fiction with a detective novel. The only disappointments in this book are when you notice that you are running out of pages to read. I hope Mr. Niehaus is planning on giving his readers more of the same--soon!

    Great Police/Medical Mystery Written By A Real Cop!

    Niehaus' writing is superb. His detailed descriptions make you feel like you're there with his characters. This is one of those books you don't dare put down until the last page. His real life police experience makes this work shine!!!!
