Description

'Daniel Hecht has created something quite original: the neuropathologic Gothic' - Jonathan Kellerman Global violence is escalating at a frightening pace - school shootings, drive-by shootings, hate crimes are on the increase, not to mention serial killings and mass murders, or homicides by juveniles. A culture of hate has been identified in populations across the world and the endgame can only be widespread civil conflict and genocide. For these all appear to be symptoms of an 'epidemic' termed the Babel Effect...Ryan McCloud, a major league problem solver, and his creative team of misfit intellectuals have been hired to establish whether the epidemic has a biological, neurological basis - where does it stem from? Who will be afflicted next? In the face of opposition from sinister and powerful organisations, Ryan is desperate to find a way of halting the contagion of the Babel Effect...before it's too late for his family...before it's too late for mankind...THE BABEL EFFECT is a stunning post-millennial thriller and a powerful followup to Daniel Hecht's debut novel, SKULL SESSION.
