Blake Crouch does it again! He and Andy Weir are my go-to sci-fi authors that always promise me a thrill ride along with an education.
In this story, Logan Ramsay is an agent in the Gene Protection Agency and he is working to alleviate the guilt he has for his mother’s crimes. Both are brilliant geneticists who were working to improve the world for humanity. But just how much change can you make before humans are no longer humans? Logan struggles with this concept as he is the victim of a gene editing. Suddenly he is able to access all of his brain power and his bones and muscles are stronger. He can no longer relate to humanity the way he used to and he’s on the run from his former agency. He must prove his innocence, figure out just who edited him, what their next target is and how to stop them.
Part nerd read, part spy thriller I could not put this book down once I picked it up. I was so interested in the outcome and the science. Giving it 4.5 stars because I wanted just a bit more about Logan’s future in the epilogue but this one deserves its place on the shelf beside Dark Matter and Recursion. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
Thanks to Netgalley for advanced access to this novel, I did go on to purchase a copy. All opinions above are my own.
What do you think of AI? Cool or scary?
