About this product
- DescriptionSurreal, transrealist, existentialist thriller in the hazy chemical funk of crime forensics. Essex, England, forensic scientist William Bunk's life is messed around when he finds DNA samples in his post. His wife is murdered and he is the prime suspect. Could there be a connection between the Homo erectus DNA and that space dust from NASA? Maybe you'd think? Bunk has scientific proof of the truth of god, existence. Others will stop at thing to destroy the evidence. A dirty bomb attack on London brings Bunk to the edge. Will Guantanamo Bay crush him? Or can Bunk find a hidden truth at Tunguska and cure humanity of its most deadly infection, the God virus? A fast-paced, globe-spanning thriller with a mind-blowing conclusion from Dagger Award Nominee Gary J Byrnes. What will you make of it?
- Author BiographyGARY J BYRNES (Dublin, Ireland) is a number one thriller writer whose stories are edgy, controversial page-twisters. Nominated for the Crime Writers' Association Debut Dagger Award with avant-garde Limerick crime thriller PURE MAD, published in 2009. Has also published transrealist thriller THE GOD VIRUS (2011) and a series of kids' thrillers about witches and magic in Ireland, WITCH GRANNIES. Also THE WRITER AND OTHER STORIES shorts collection and TO EAT THE WORLD, an experimental thriller about New York, art, food and Nazis. Gary says: Stories are what make us human. The beauty about writing fiction is that there really are no limits. Fiction is so powerful that the world is controlled by it, from the Bible to political manifestos. But my fiction is about escape, entertainment and excitement. Pure Mad, my crime thriller, is set in Limerick, Ireland and was nominated for the UK Crime Writers' Association Debut Dagger. I've since revisited the work and published The Author's Cut. The God Virus is a wild conspiracy thriller about an atheist forensics scientist who gets hold of DNA samples that raise huge questions about the origin of humanity, the power of religion and the ultimate questions of life, God and where we're going as a species. I try to focus on building strong and interesting characters and letting them breathe in plots that have no limits. My stories are edgy, controversial and, I hope, like nothing you've read before. I want you to enjoy my writing and would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on my Facebook author page at facebook.com/GaryJByrnesThrillerWriter. If you like my work, please give it a rating and review here on Amazon. What's most important to me is that you're reading. So thanks, Gary J Byrnes www.GaryJByrnes.com
