Sometimes when one picks up a book of a well know author and notice that the only quote given on the cover is a generic one, alarm bells ring, but you ignore them as they are an award winning author who you have enjoyed before, and you are sure you are going to enjoy this book.
Well sadly this one was not quite so good. If I had not read and enjoyed Ken's books before then I would not have bothered to read on to the end, and it would not be getting a review. (Only books that I complete get a review, that is why the majority of my reviews are fairly positive.)
The idea behind the story is that a genetics researcher uncovers several people with seemingly different parents, born in different places, on different days all with the same DNA. It seems that a biotech company has been making illegal clones as super aggressive males just right for the army. If this is uncovered then a multi million dollar deal will go down the pan.
On the face of it a good idea but just lacked execution, too much time spent describing in great detail all the sexual deviations these clones are exhibiting, and not enough time exploring the rest of the characters giving some depth to the story. As I did get to the end it does get a review but sadly in my humble opinion this is a book for the recycling.
