“Deserves comparisons to Michael Crichton and John Grisham” ABC North Queensland
On the Morning Show with Paula Tapiolas, 9 Sept 2010, Kate Eltham from the Queensland Writer’s Centre said The Genesis Flaw deserves comparison to Michael Crichton and John Grisham. Wow! What an honour.
Here is the full review:
We’re so often plastered with splashy American mass-market thrillers that it’s really heartening to see a futuristic enviro-thriller of this calibre punching hard in this category, especially from a debut Australian writer and a quality smaller Australian publishing house.
The Genesis Flaw is set in a future world where the world is dependent on genetically modified (GM) food. Advertising executive Serena Swift uncovers a shocking cover-up by the world’s largest GM food company – Gene-Asis. She goes undercover to expose their secrets only to find herself framed for murder and on the run.
Smart, well-researched science creates a solid bedrock for this pacy thriller which deserves comparisons to Michael Crichton and John Grisham.
