Editorial Reviews

Review

"It's been a while since I've read a book where the suspense kept me turning the pages like it did with Gene Cards." -- Nicholas Sansbury Smith, bestselling author of Orbs

"Murders, genetically modified crops, government conspiracies, and frighteningly believable science create a compelling mystery and make Gene Cards an exciting thriller." -- Anthony J. Melchiorri, author of The God Organ

"E.E. Giorgi is an accomplished scientist who also has a gift for spinning a suspenseful story. Gene Cards seems to arise from the nightmares of a geneticist who knows about things that can go wrong." -- Carol Kean, Perihelion Book Critic

"Gene Cards is a fast-paced story that grabs you right from the start and keeps you on your toes right to the end. You feel as if you are part of the action!" -- Stargazer Literary Prizes

"I found Gene Cards a rewarding read, one that kept me glued to the pages throughout to see what comes next. And come they did - many suspenseful and nail biting moments." -- MysterySequels.com 

From the Author

Ever since I started my blog on genetics, people have been asking me about genetically modified foods. And ever since I started my blog, I've been procrastinating discussing the topic. Part of the reason is that I don't think there's much we can do about it. The other part is that I do believe pollution from pesticides and antibiotic resistance are far graver problems, and if modifying a few genes can rid us of such poisons, then I welcome the improvement.
 
I finally gave in and wrote a post on GMOs in October 2012 (see link at the bottom). People who absolutely hate GMOs criticized me. So did people who don't think there's anything wrong with GMOs. Because, truth to be told, I cannot side either way. GMOs aren't poisonous. We've been eating DNA throughout evolution. Furthermore, if it weren't for genetically modified rice more than half of the planet would be starving right now. And again, I'd rather feed my child with a genetically modified plant that can grow without pesticides than one drenched in chemical (and don't tell me organic is chemical-free because it's not unless it comes with a little worm inside).
 
In Gene Cards I came up with a plausible scenario of what could go wrong with a genetically modified plant. Bacteria are already mutating fast thanks to antibiotic resistance. What if they could get even more genetic variation from those extra genes we've been introducing in plants? I don't know that it could happen, but it's something to think about. Though what really inspired me to write Gene Cards weren't the GMOs per se. It was what I learned about the corporations producing the GMOs.
 
In the end, I think today's world poses a lot of tough choices and you can't win all the battles you could possibly fight. Read, stay informed and pick your battles: some are worth it, others aren't. There's good and evil in every thing, especially in a fast changing world like ours.
