At an elite Chicago university, Cancer researcher Rosalind Evans discovers that the genetic code at the center of the second chromosome spells out the Ten Commandments. Sure that her top-secret pharma project has been hacked, she launches an investigation. But that night, unbeknownst to her, the discovery is leaked to a popular blog and goes viral. The next morning, the world wakes up to the news that there is a message from God in their DNA. Public reaction is intense: to some it’s a miracle, and to others, a myth. But to a group of religious and political elites, the God Gene is a dangerous public delusion that threatens their very existence. With the media fanning the flames, Evans quickly becomes the scapegoat in a growing controversy. A pharma executive wants her fired, the Vatican wants her silenced, and the U.S. Attorney wants her arrested. A bizarre battle ensues as Rosalind Evans takes on the most powerful institutions on earth to preserve her scientific integrity, her freedom, and ultimately her life.
