"Daughter of God is the way thrillers are supposed to be written. A read you won't soon forget! - Clive Cussler" Lara Blackwood, genetic engineering entrepreneur and presidential advisor, receives a call from an old college friend who asks her help in solving a ghastly epidemic in Tokyo. That phone call sets in motion a chain of death and mayhem stretching from San Francisco to Washington, DC; from Amsterdam to Japan. To her horror, Lara discovers that her life's work has been perverted to produce a revolutionary new genetic weapon that kills by turning people's own chromosomes against them. Lara risks assassination to expose the conspiracy behind "Slatewiper" - before a nightmarish terrorist scheme threatens the entire human race with extinction.
