It begins with a sacked and looted zoo in Baghdad and ends seven years later in Louisiana when a boat smuggling animals into the country wrecks. Veterinarian Lorna Polk is called out to investigate the fishing trawler, and what she discovers is enough to raise the hair on the back of her neck. In the cages are critters with bizarre deformities and enhanced intelligence.

Joining forces with a man she has some rather troubling history with, U.S. Border Patrol Agent Jack Menard, Polk seeks to uncover the truth about this sinister cargo and whether it poses the terrorist threat that it seems to. Their investigation takes on new urgency when a “modified” tiger escapes, posing a serious threat to the inhabitants in the area.

A highly readable, fast-paced thriller, Altar of Eden brings together cutting-edge information on fractal intelligence, stem cell research and genetic engineering with a cast of believable characters. Once into this novel, you’ll find it so engrossing and chillingly fascinating that you’ll be unable to set it down. You’ve been forewarned – don’t go near the Altar of Eden unless you are willing to sacrifice some time.
