Description

Quinn Riley wasn't born. He was created. Constructed of artificial DNA, he was designed as the perfect soldier, explorer or assassin. His destiny is clear...until the scientists who created him abduct him in infancy. Quinn was raised as human, oblivious of his true origins. He had a normal childhood, planned for a normal career as a doctor. But the day he got his M.D., his whole life changed. Socrates, the company that funded his creation, found him. And Quinn learns the truth of who or what he is. With the help of his best friend, a renegade scientist, and a Hawaiian girl who shares his love of surfing, Quinn goes on the run. Or tries to, until Socrates catches up with him. It's time for Quinn to fulfil his destiny, and Socrates will use any means, up to and including murder, to force him to become the inhuman creature he was bred to be. The only question that remains is whether the years of being part of a family, of being loved and taught to love, will be able to overcome what was bred into him. Can Quinn's learned humanity override his man-made genetic programming?show more

About Ann Simko

When not writing, Ann Simko works as a nurse at a level one trauma center. Her first novel, Fallen, was originally published in 2009, where it became the number one best seller for thrillers in her publishing house for almost a year. Ann writes thrillers, anything with a ticking-bomb type of plot, maybe with a wee bit of paranormal thrown in for fun. She lives in rural Pennsylvania with her husband who puts up with her over active imagination, two scary teenagers who try to ignore her, three very large dogs, six cats and five extraordinarily large lawn ornaments otherwise known as horses. She has six published novels and is currently contracted for one new book.show more
