If you loved The DaVinci Code be prepared to be wowed again by The Descartes Evolution, which hides another secret several hundred years old.
Jenna’s physician father had always told her she must take her medicine to prevent the genetic disease she carries in her body from progressing. When he is killed, she turns to his partner to determine what is in the mysteriously unlabeled pill bottle. Jenna then gets a letter from her father that tells her to tell no one about her disease but a Dr. Merrick and to mention the word Descartes. Unfortunately, Dr. Merrick is out of town and events spiral quickly out of control. Jenna is forced to trust the mysterious Luke. Together, they seek the answer to both the treatment of her disease and a possibly worldwide syndicate planning a terrorist plot.
The Descartes Evolution is an exciting and dark look at what really might underlie the world order. 4.5 stars!
