Chromosome 4: a Science Fiction, Science Fiction Thriller
The Fix is In, 4 Stars
Chromosome 4 refers to a part of a gene that regulates aging, and the wife of the protagonist, Roger Winston, is a researcher with access to new research that can extend human life. The government wants it. A rival company wants it. Thus Roger and Paula Winston are targets.
Inexplicably, the Winston's decide to embark on a cruise on a spaceship. When I piece together this story, I was scratching my head. If your life is in danger, why would you go on a cruise? But not everything is as it seems.
Our protagonist has an exit strategy to sell the research and make a boatload of money. The only question is who else is in on the con?
The author puts together a nice story, and eventually reveals the players involved. My only concern with this novella is the lack of background information on the characters, in particular Roger Winston.
