The Genesis Code by John Case
I picked up this book ages ago at a book sale and have only just got around to reading it. The book starts with a confession by a doctor in a small town in Europe. The priest hearing his confession rushes off to Rome where he eventually is able to tell his story.
Jump to America where Joe Lassiter, a private detective, discovers that his daughter and small nephew have been murdered. While investigating the murders he discovers that this is just 1 in a string of similar murders all around the world. He looks a bit more and discovers that all the women attended the same fertility clinic in Italy, and goes in search of the surviving women.
I really enjoyed this book, it was fast paced, active and full of intrigue. Enough twists and turns to keep you guessing. I dont think Joe was a very good investigator though because quite a few things I guessed before he did. I would definitely like to try other books by this author.
