Michael Cordy may have offered us an embarrassment of riches in combining the two main plot elements, religion and genetics. Neither element feels completely original, and there's a slight awkwardness in the way they fit together. To paraphrase Lewis Carroll, it's a bit like trying to believe six impossible things before breakfast. The travel's too easy, the geneticist's genius sidekick too naive, the science a little too shallowly portrayed, the ethical decision-making too facile. Oh, and the characters could have done with much more development

this was a one time read. There was enough suspense to keep me entertained to the end but does not rate an other reading at some future date.

It's probably not fair to review a book about genetics and religious mega-conspiracy so long after its original publication date -- too much water under the bridge with this genre. Even if the reader makes a firm commitment to avoid comparing it to "The Da Vinci Code," what about Lewis Perdue's "The Daughter of God" or James Rollins' "Map of Bones"? The list is huge.

This book was first published in 1997 as "The Miracle Strain," before many of the better-known religious conspiracy books.

All that said, the book is an absorbing thriller and still a very good read. The plot manages to throw a few surprises at the reader, and even the predictable developments are reasonably well presented. I recommend this book for traveling or any time when your attention is partially committed elsewhere: you may not lose yourself entirely in it but you'll be able to pick it up and dive right back into it.

Originally published as The Miracle Strain: A Genetic Thriller it appears that the suce$$ of The Da Vinci Code was enough to get this republished/retitled.

About a doctor whose daughter has fallen ill. In an attempt to heal her he is led to search for DNA of Jesus to heal her, all the while he is being followed by a paid killer.

The killer is apprehended. Suprise! It is discovered that the killer has the same genes as Jesus. Hmmm. To me this idea of gene recovery has been done before and better in Jurassic Park: A Novel. Many pages are spent with characters hunched over their computer keyboards, hardly exciting. Not a page-turner. An interesting idea not handled well.

I thought the plot for this book was fantastic. The writing just didn't quite flesh out the characters enough to make the book impossible to put down. That is a serious shame, because it would have been fascinating to get to know some of the characters a little bit better. With that said, this is still a good weekend or plane ride book.

Alternate author considerations would be John Case or Dan Brown. Alternate title would definitely be "Footsteps of God".

Important Note: This title is a reprint of "The Miracle Strain", published in 1997.

I enjoyed reading this book. The storyline was interesting albeit a little far-fetched. My complaint was that parts of the storyline weren't fleshed out enough, while others had too much detail given to them. That very well could have been the author's method of trying to fool the reader and then surprise them, and if so, I suppose that's okay. I liked the book enough that I will check out others by this author.

I have to agree with other reviewers that the plot was really interesting and the book very good. I thought the characters were developed well, and the scientific information necessary to further the story was presented clearly at the right level. I did not figure this one out until right before the major twist was revealed, and really enjoyed the ending. I will definitely read more of Cordy's books in the future.
I admit, I was suckered in by the title, after having read Angels and Demons, and I wasn't disappointed.

The plot revolves around a rather fascinating plot that works as being rather believable as well as entertaining.

If you enjoyed Angels and Demons/The Da Vinci Code, you will enjoy this book as much as I did.
