National Geographic's Gegraphic Project is mapping hundreds of thousands of DNA samples to develop a comprehensive family tree of the human race. Computer scientist Eric Colburn and geneticist Alana McKinsey join the project while continuing their college romance. Eric stumbles on a plot by a brilliant Muslim scientist, Dr. Alomari, who has co-opted the Gegraphic project.
Liam Roberts, fascination with genetics - particularly the Genographic Project sponsored by The National Georgraphic Society and the idea that the story of Noah's flood might be recorded in our DNA - combined with an interest in Islamic terrorism, provide the impetus for this debut novel. Roberts has a popular blog where he writes on topics surrounding Christianity and Islam in America. He has been married for thirty-three years to his wife, Marsha, and they have been blessed with three incredible children.
