    Fab commercial crime thriller that reads like something Michael Crichton or Dan Brown might've come up with I read this a bazillion 20? years ago and out of the blue it was nominated for our co ed book club That I just got back last week from Italy where part of the story is set was a boon DO NOT READ THE BLURB If you know me well enough to understand my book snobbery and if you're in the mood for a beach book or imaginative thriller just grab this and launch into itWithout revealing too much what we have here is how we should tie a confession made by one very well educated man to a priest in some tiny village in Italy to the death of innocents in suburban USA We've got a confused and grieving cop chasing leads and really just a fun commercial thriller John Case by the way is not an author but a married duo who have written some really successful suspense novels I've read at least two by them but it has been so long there's no telling if I remembered to even stick them on my 'Read' shelf upon joining GR I'm about to go look up some of their others and grab them for my 15 year old John Case makes reading FUNLoved this old beach book

    True story about 10 years ago the parents' of a good friend of mine bought a car while wintering in Florida They didn't want to drive it home so they flew us down and we did the honors My friend's mom gave us a stack of books on tape for the ride back We had planned a bunch of stops and sightseeing but after putting this on we essentially drove straight through from Savannah Ga to Columbus Oh because we just couldn't bear to leave the storyIf that's not high praise for a thriller I dunno what is

    A priest in a small village in Italy hears the confession of a doctor that sends the priest to the Vatican immediately Joe Lassiter has a large successful private investigative agency Life is good And then his sister and her young son are killed in a blast that burns their home to the ground The fire was professionally set Then he learns they were killed before the fire Why? She was an NPR producer with a very ordinary life This very well crafted story that is gripping until the last word

    The author keeps the suspense going till the very last Partly because this is what has been called a biomedical thriller and the clue is in the realm of science fiction so its nothing that you can predict The book has enough twists and turns The negative is the lead character He is supposed to be an investigator but is not very good at it He just goes in and asks uestions that you and I will ask without ever thinking that the person answering might be compromising him And he is very weak in the physical action department I mean he gets battered and bruised uite a lot without doing much in the form of hitting back With a stronger hero the story could have been tauter and the book racier

    When I finished reading John Case’s The Genesis Code the first thought that came to my mind was how come I didn’t read it earlier A thriller with unthinkable twists and turns delving deep into religion theology and history— a reader couldn’t have asked for Being an avid lover of this particular genre I felt sorry for depriving myself of this treat for so many yearsJohn Case is actually the pseudonym for the couple Jim and Carolyn Hougan The Genesis Code was their first and most famous publication Together the couple has authored a few books and I’m planning to read The Murder Artist as the nextThe Genesis Code begins with the confession of a doctor at the church in one of the remotest and most beautiful hill towns of Italy which immediately makes Father Azetti rush to the Vatican so that going beyond all the norms he could deliver the message of the confession he heard to one of the CardinalsA few months later in McLean Joe Lassiter wakes up to a phone call in the wee hours of the morning only to be informed that his sister Kathy and nephew Brandon have been killed in a fire at their residence The police suspect arson as a man with an ambiguous identity and a third degree burn has been rescued on the spotPrivate investigator Joe probes deeper as he wants to know the reason behind the crime With all his power contacts and money as he tries to unearth the secret behind the gruesome murders he finds himself in a maze of conspiracy constant chase around the globe and even a series of murdersDifferent women and their kids have been ruthlessly murdered in different countries following the same MO Things get worse when Joe suspects a conservative but enormously powerful religious group Umbra Domini’s involvement in this mad crime Remember Opus Dei of The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown? Umbra Domini is their euivalentWhy are the ruthless savage shadowy killers hunting down innocent mothers and their kids? What is the connection among this murder mayhem? What is the truth so powerful that some people can go to any extreme to bury it?The nexus between religion and science a macabre series of incidents that follow will keep the readers on the edge of their seat It took me two sittings to finish the 530 page book Actually you won’t be able to put it down till the truth is unravelledIt’s difficult to find a flaw in the book The dialogues are crisp and fitting to the characters The research is vivid the language lucid However I think at places there are descriptions which are unnecessarily long and dragging And as the reader badly wants the mystery to be unearthed shehe would feel an urge to skip a few pagesThe Genesis Code was published way before the Dan Brown era in 1997 While reading the book it must be kept in mind that the internet Google search engine mobile handsets and the ilk were not in vogue at that timeFor reviews visit maniparnacom

    The goodreadscom site reuires one to five stars in a review I've used three out of five because the book is great but the cover gave everything away I could think all day and not come up with a single bad thing to say about John Case Great creator of excellent stories This book has a relentless pursuit of a killer Sometimes my heart racedNot often and certainly not as often as John Case intended It's the cover It gives away the premise the motive and the first chapters give away the identity or at least the profession of the killer I spent the first half of the book waiting for the poor slow characters to figure out what the cover already told the reader It changes a thriller into a bore I stopped reading and tore off the front and back cover the back is also a give away I'll use stealth bookcrossingcom to pass this good book on to another reader That person may wonder why someone tore off the covers Let them wonder; mystery is good I did it as a huge favor

    this is the most awesome edge of the seat thriller I've ever read John Case the author digs really deep into history science criminology and religion Although this is categorized as fiction it is interesting to reflect back to the the 1997 publishing year and see how a lot of the story was as if the author truly experienced this in his life

    It all starts in a small town in the Umbrian countryside of Italy A devout doctor nearing the end of his life confesses to the local priest a sin the magnitude of which will stretch around the world affecting the lives of innocent families everywhere Shortly after this a man named Joe Lassiter recieves a phone call in the middle of the night informing him that his sister and her young son have perished in a tragic fire The cause arson To make matters even shocking it is discovered that they were both murdered in their beds before the fire was set seemingly in cold blood Joe the owner of a highly successful investigative agency sets out on a uest for answers that will take him to Italy Prague and finally to the most remote reaches of Maine in the process uncovering a secret that could change the world as we know itThis book was at best a diversion In the typical suspense thriller style absolutely nothing was revealed until the last chapter or so leaving us readers hanging on the edges of our seats In the midst of reading it I remember thinking I wish he would just get on with it already Indeed it seemed at times as though the author was deliberatly dragging things out and that was annoying I have to admit though the ending was pretty shocking It's one of those where you think you've got it all figured out but then the author just throws something at you you totally weren't expecting Also true to form of most books of this type the writing itself wasn't all that spectacular It got the job done but don't expect any great prose All in all I would say it was okay but I don't think I'd read it again purely because the only thing that kept me reading it in the first place was wanting to know what the heck was going on
