January 5 (Monday, 7:30 pm) — Publishers Weekly’s review of Genesis Code by Jamie Metzel notes: “Metzl, a former member of the U.S. National Security Council, offers up a tense vision of the near future with this science fiction thriller…Metzl enhances it with a philosophical protagonist, scientific plausibility, and a keen sense of mood.” This futuristic thriller offers a frightening look at a new kind of superpower race—of humans. As women unknowingly impregnated with genetically enhanced embryos are murdered, Rich Azadian, a historically-burdened Armenian-American reporter for the Kansas City Star, begins the fight of his life, under growing danger, to try to figure out who is killing these women and why, and whether any others like them may still be alive.
