More About the Author
From the Back Cover
One man battles for the life of his daughter in the face of seemingly unbeatable odds. But to save her he must first reach for the ultimate knowledge...
At the moment of his greatest triumph, the Nobel Prize for Medicine, Dr Tom Carter's world is shattered by the assassination of his wife. He knows that the killer's bullets can only have been meant for him. In the aftermath of her death, a scan reveals that his daughter Holly has an incurable brain disorder and less than a year to live. Even the most advanced conventional science cannot save her. Something more radical is required. Tom Carter needs a miracle.
A secret brotherhood, two thousand years old, may have the answer. They need Carter's skills to complete their own sacred quest. In return they offer him the chance to look beyond the genes of man...and into the genes of God.

I like the idea that some parts of the story are so good that you wish it could be true, and it gets again into the fact that scientists are trying to explain our beliefs with physical evidence!
A very intelligent theological/scientifical story at points obscure but certainly enjoyable from start to end.
Have you ever had that feeling of sorrow when you complete an outstanding book?
