Overview

Gen-Ops by Clifford Bowyer

Genetic manipulation and enhancement becomes the key to evolution being worked on by scientists from around the world who are privy to a discovery found in the heart of a catastrophic storm that devastated Earth. With the research conducted, test subjects show augmentation in all facets of being, from physical fitness to prowess to acuity. Beyond the obvious evolution to the test subjects, the discovery also led to vast scientific, medical, and militaristic breakthroughs that normally would have taken generations to achieve. But not all of the scientists on the project were willing to work in secrecy and with no personal gain. A handful of the lead scientists contacted foreign powers and agreed to sell the technology to the highest bidders as long as they were extracted.

Logan Stone, Captain of Shadow Recon was deployed to the secret underground facility that had been breached. Arriving too late, he and his team only found more questions than answers. Before they could discover what was really going on, they were pulled out by a classified military unit and ordered back to base.

Twenty years later, Stone had little care for what he had stumbled upon that night or for his life as a black-ops military leader at all. After losing his wife, Stone's sole priority was raising his daughter and giving her a good and happy life. But no matter how hard he tried to keep her safe, circumstances keep trying to draw him back into a world where violence, mayhem, and plausible deniability dominate his every thought.

The technology is out there, the secret of the GENs is on the open market, and the government agency that had been tasked with recovering the technology or destroying all evidence of its existence has been targeted for assassination. Former Shadow Recon team member Alexander Hodge, the current United States President, reaches out to Stone to request aid. Reluctantly, Stone is drawn back into the fold, but not before he is provided a personal guarantee by the President to let him do things his way and with no oversight.

It is a race as Stone and his team fights to keep the true secret of the discovery from coming out and recover that which had been stolen. Gen-Ops combines military, espionage, intrigue, and strong character development in a fast-paced and dangerous not-too-distant future world where the fate of humanity hangs in the balance.
