When Mendel pioneered the early study of genetics, he probably never imagined anything like GENEXUS.
Secretly funded and operated by VanGen Biotechnology Corporation, PROJECT GENEXUS is the design, creation, and maturation of six genetically engineered humans – males Derek, Dmitri, and David; and females Dianna, Daniela, and Dominique. Now ten years old, the GENEXUS children are already far superior to normal humans. They are faster, stronger and more agile; possess genius level IQs; and are resistant to virtually every known disease. They are distinguished by their light golden skin, pure white hair and jewel-colored eyes.
Faced with the ethical risks and exorbitant costs of maintaining the illegal project, VanGen’s founder and CEO, Charles Lincoln Vandergellan, decides to terminate the initiative, and along with it the GENEXUS children. Athena Gianopoulos, a beautiful young geneticist assigned to work with one of the children, accidently learns of VanGen’s plans. In an attempt to save them from being euthanized, Athena smuggles the children off the GENEXUS campus and into hiding. Desperate to recover the children and keep the program a secret, VanGen dispatches its private security team to find the scientist and resolve the situation ... by any means necessary.
Fast-paced action, nail-biting suspense, and exciting twist and turns await readers in this tale of scientific discovery, friendship, love, betrayal, and survival.
