What would happen to society and to the balance of power in the battle between the sexes if the genes that code for violent behavior in men could be isolated and then modified? Crime Zero is a novel that is sure to alarm readers with the sort of frightening plausibility that sent The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood onto the bestseller lists.

It is the year 2008 and crime has become epidemic around the globe, nowhere more so than in the United States, where a group of scientists has taken matters into their own hands to offer what they see as a cure. Under the guise of Project Conscience, a rehabilitation scheme for offenders to modify their genes, a more sinister agenda is at work, one that will change the statistics finally and irrevocably.

For Luke Decker, FBI forensic psychologist, the move toward a genetic solution is fraught with danger. Unaware of the secret plan, he resolves to counter any developments with his own conclusions. But he is also unaware of a secret that is much closer to home and that constitutes a far greater risk to his safety and sanity than anything the geneticists can come up with. Unwittingly, he too will become a casualty when Crime Zero reaches its logical conclusion.

Provocative, plausible, prophetic, and deeply disturbing, Crime Zero is an incendiary bomb of a novel sure to incite controversy.
