Review by: Donna Jaske on April 13, 2012 :
Captain Kynan Brice on Olinda doesn’t much like Brock Marsden. Probably hates him, or admires his skills? But that doesn’t stop him from rudely waking Marsden and demanding he come out at once and talk. Marsden is a detective with special talents, should we say? He has done numerous DNA modifications to take on the abilities of alien races, and his latest addition to his DNA arsenal includes the ability to “see” things by scent, not sight.

This latest mystery involves a villain who murders from afar by somehow changing a person’s DNA such that they morph into some type of monster so fast it kills them. Imagine standing there minding your own business, then being hit by the beam and seeing your arms turning into claws and your legs disappearing from under you. Not a pleasant way to die. And, Marsden needs to solve this crime fast before he becomes the next victim.

I give this book a 3.7 star rating. Brock is an interesting character, and strange, but the reader can still admire him. The story is creative and interesting. I lowered the rating on this book because there are too many typos, even for someone willing to forgive. Every 5 pages or so there is a typo that distracts enough from the story that the reader loses some of her concentration. The author should have someone else edit this book and clean up the mistakes. Then it will deserve a 4.4 rating.
