Mike Trial’s newest novella is a fast paced ride through the world of high tech gene editing. Francesca, a graduate student at Iowa University, is working to perfect a method of genetic editing which will permanently prevent stokes in humans. But she finds her research is at risk of being pirated by foreign powers who seem willing to stop at nothing to get what they want.
Although gene editing is among the greatest steps forward ever made in improving human health, Francesca quickly learns that any technology can be weaponized. She must devise a plan to outwit her shadowy opponents—opponents who may have collaborators within the University.
Mike Trial has lived in many cities across the United States and overseas. He now makes his home in Columbia, Missouri. Visit his website at MikeTrialWriter.com.
