Chromosome 8 by Peter Holt

EDITORIAL REVIEW: When a research submersible vanishes in a far corner of the South Pacific, biologist Marcus Oden and his geologist friend Nick Kondos mount a rescue attempt. The hunt leads to a host of mysterious shipwrecks, to a group of violent Polynesian revolutionaries seeking the return of their traditional gods and culture voeÇ " complete with cannibalism voeÇ " and to hordes of strange creatures. One of these strange denizens is Dr. Gastro Nister, a medical genius who saved his dying daughter Katya by awakening within her a set of ancient genes left over from primeval times. Not only does she survive, but she gains astonishing new abilities. Brilliant, beautiful, and apparently healed, Katya takes the miracle to the next level, one that reaches out to every human to twist something already there. Something that will either change humanity . . . or end it. Deep in a primeval jungle, Marcus and Nick battle an ancient godvoeÇ eÑos followers as well as an evolutionary plan spawned from modern science, one that threatens to swap mankindvoeÇ eÑos future for a return to its most primitive past.
