The Mendelian Protocol by Raymond Finkle - Guest Blogger Book Review


Two genetic researchers are brutally slain on a remote beach in the Bahamas. The investigation falls to Dr. Natalie Franklin, the small-town Medical Examiner working her first murder case. She doesn’t mind dealing with dead bodies, but dealing with her boss, the Chief of Police, is another matter entirely. As she struggles to make sense of the bizarre forensic clues, she learns that sometimes the truth is a casualty that no one wants revived. She vows to find answers to explain the evidence that is seemingly impossible to reconcile.

The Keller Corporation is the main employer on the island of St. Angela. When researcher Greg Cooper is hired, he initially thinks he has landed in paradise. After a few days of crunching data, though, he realizes that his dream job is more of a tedious grind than anything else. Out of boredom he begins to poke around and soon suspects that the Keller Corporation is up to something unethical or even sinister. When Greg discovers another dead body, it seems like a horrible accident, and that’s what Dr. Natalie Franklin thinks, too. But it isn’t long before Greg and Natalie are racing to unlock the secret of the Mendelian Protocol before becoming victims themselves.

Jennifer's Review
The Mendelian Protocol is a very good book. I really enjoyed reading it. 
It’s about a group of people who live on an island, St. Angela’s, and strange things start to happen. 
It begins with a strange old man who kills a tourist and his partner. The M.E.(medical examiner) finds out that the old man has taken a chunk out of her buttock when she examines the woman. 
Soon, others are being killed by strange white men whose skin is crawling; they are shining and dangerous. In order to stop them, the group needs to find out what they are, and to do that, they talk to the person they believe created them. 
As it turns out, they are not what they seem -- not human, not animal, but something stranger. 
Does the group escape and figure out what's going on?
 I really liked this book, and it deserves 4 stars.
