Driven by intense hatred and extreme violence the Muslim Brotherhood is in a battle for religious and racial supremacy. They are in a mission, a thirst for world power and domination. Celebrated scientist Ahmed Alomari is in a conspiracy to research the DNA of the Islamic race to the beginning of human history and to uncover the Y factor.
Liam Robert's book "The Y Factor" had me mesmerized before the end of the first page. The book is a fusion of mystery, trepidation, and intrigue. The fast moving plot includes computer and genetics technology, scientific data, al Qaeda assassins, detailed information on the Muslim religion, culture and history as well as military tactics
Ominous plot twists, murder, bedlam, terrorists, and government agents find young computer analyst Eric Colburn and his geneticist girlfriend Alana McKinsey in a battle for their lives in cities around the world including: Atlanta, Georgia; Delhi, India; Tokyo, Japan; Cairo, Egypt; and Karachi, Pakistan. The plot is filled with an adrenaline rush that intensifies page after exciting page, combining conflict and resolution, and then a cycle of more conflict and resolution.
Liam Roberts is a new voice in the techno thriller genre. Crisp strong writing and an amazing creative imagination insure that Roberts is destined to become a best selling author. His plot ideas are fresh and relevant, his descriptions are exceptional, and his characters are credible. Liam's fascination with genetics and his insight into the National Geographic's Genographic Project provide him with the creditability to author this unique insight look into DNA research into tracing a race of people back into Israel's history.
"The Y Factor" will soon be a favorite for fans who enjoy the thriller techno suspense genre. Readers specifically drawn to novels which incorporate the role of Biblical prophecy with current events will find Liam's writing exciting, enlightening, and plausible. I am eagerly looking forward to Liam Robert's next novel.

The Y Factor for Liam Roberts is a fast-paced action packed thriller about genetics and terrorism. Eric Colburn takes a job at the National Genographic Society after the mysterious disappearance of a friend who was working for the company in Egypt. His girlfriend Alana also takes a job with them in hopes of discovering the truth. The two quickly find themselves caught up in a high-stakes game of terrorism and intrigue that puts their lives at stake. Ahmed Alomari, a shadowy Muslim figure has a secret plan to elevate Muslims into positions of power around the world with the information the Society is discovering in its genetic research, and he's not about to let Eric and Alana get in his way. There's lot of action and nail-biting suspense as the couple travels around the world, battle robed figures, and try to get to the bottom of Alomari's insidious plot. Alana's faith carries her through the rough spots, and Roberts does a good job of making both characters realistic in their prayers and discussions about religion. The book ends with too many unanswered questions. Eric never discovers the truth about his friend's disappearance, the initial impetus for his joining the company, and the truth about Alomari's research is never disclosed. If there's going to be a sequel, these questions really need to be addressed. If this is a stand-alone it's serious flaw in the plot. His descriptions of a Navy SEALS mission seems incredibly realistic and is a highlight of the novel.
