I started this book with only medium sized hopes. With stories of this nature I know that they usually end up being very good or very bad.
This book started out strong but ended up getting a little disappointing towards the end. One thing I want to address about this book is that the focus of the book is more genetic than archaeological.
I didn't take off any stars for this. I'm really only mentioning it so you the reader can get a better feel for the type of novel this is. The description made it seem like it'd be something like a Berry book, so I figure others might get the same impression. That being said, this book started off rather well. He's got a lot of potential. Even so, this is solidly a beach read fare for when you want something fun but not all that serious.

This is one of the best mysteries I have read. The gene not only would cure diseases that are associated with old age, but it would extend human life span to to years.

Others who are also searching for the gene are the US Government to control it and a mega rich entrepreneur in Israel to save his live and make a ginormous profit.
The mystery stretches from Mesopotamia thousands of years ago, to the overthrow of the Shaw of Iraq, to present day intrigue among microbiological researchers. The premise was ingenious and the road to the conclusion was very well handled. I felt the macro ending was very predictable, but the interest is in the details which were well done. Unfortunately, really smart characters made really stupid mistakes, which were not addressed in the plot. Then, as the plot races to its conclusion other brilliant characters get unexplained cases of stupid. An expert assassin double parks a hot car, not for just a minute or two, but potentially for hours.
That causes him a minor problem which he easily fixes. All it does is add to the word count and make one wonder how such a smart man could make that kind of goof. Then there is a chase involving other really intelligent characters.

The chaser makes a stupid, sophomore mistake and loses the person he is chasing. In an unexplained way, the chaser finds the person and begins the chase anew. But in only moments, the chaser makes the exact same stupid mistake with the exact, totally predictable, same result. If the chaser was going to lose the object of the chase, some more plausible thing should have happened, and for sure, the mistake should not have been repeated. That only added to the word count at the expense of my believing the chaser was even of average intelligence.
However, because everything else was so good, I still give it five stars — nobody is perfect. Jul 23, Hira rated it liked it.

The beauty of this book, however, lay in the eclectic mix of subjects that the narrative includes - from mystery, to conspiracy, to government cover-ups, anthropology, history and mythology combined, this book sends the reader into a dizzying array of subjects to understand and explore. The plot is tied together well, and in a manner that is satisfying - but it does leave something to desire.
Kathleen Sainsbury is the daughter of an anthropologist and an archeologist Daniel and Rebecca Talbot, who died while excavating Tell-Fara, a ziggurat that they believe is more than just a historical mound. Year later, Kathleen is now a scientist working on research relating to gene therapy for human aging. Working on the INDY I'm Not Dead Yet - a Monty Python reference, which for me, was the best reference in the entire novel gene, Kathleen Sainsbury's research intertwines with that of her parents when a man from her past, someone who knew her parents, entrusts her with a mysterious relic that her parents found at Tell-Fara.
The characterization is spot-on, and I love that almost none of the characters are what they seem, making them truly multi-dimensional and intriguing. Also, I loved that the pace of the narrative, is really fast, and keeps the reader engaged. The problem I have is with some of the scientific inaccuracies, and the ending.
The ending was deeply unsatisfying to me - as is with a lot of these novels. There's a big hoopla in the narrative, and in the end, everything is neatly packaged and boxed away. But I would definitely recommend it to readers who are into mysteries, thrillers, anthropology and technological thrillers!

Not only do I want to be entertained, but I especially love it when a book inspires me to explore subjects further and ask questions of my own. Some of the exciting theories mentioned in The Genesis Key, I've come across in science reading material, such as evolution and aging as a mutation.
But what fascinates me most are the very pertinent ramifications of longer life spans. I recently read a science article on how humans will soon be having average life spans of - years. That's well and good but what does that mean for the sustainability of our species and the earth? I'm going to put it bluntly. A rapid and widespread change in human life expectancy would create catastrophic problems around the world.
