A priceless biotechnology, an FBI agent, and an unspeakable act of familial betrayal collide in a tropical kidnapping more twisted than a DNA double helix. When a renowned scientist with a solution for global warming is kidnapped at sea, FBI Special Agent Tara Shores must unravel a high-tech trail of S.O.S. messages encoded into the DNA of living cells. As each decoded message brings Tara nearer to the missing genius, it also takes her farther from help than she ever thought possible.
Also includes a sneak peak of the new Tara Shores thriller SOLAR ISLAND, coming December 2012 from Seven Realms Publishing.
What they’re saying about it:
“Rick Chesler’s KiDNApped is an intelligent suspense thriller that easily competes with anything by Cussler or Crichton. Dr. William Archer, inventor of a breakthrough piece of biotechnology, has been kidnapped, and it’s up to FBI Special Agent Tara Shores to find him. In this book, Tara is joined by Archer’s son and daughter as she searches for Dr. Archer on an action-filled chase across the beautiful Hawaiian Islands. The catch is, the only clues are encoded in microscopic strands of DNA! As far fetched as this sounds, Chesler manages to make it believable. His writing is gripping and once again, he does a great job of putting the reader right into the midst of the action. It’s a hard book to put down. I loved Chesler’s first book, Wired Kingdom, but KiDNApped is even better. I hope he’s hard at work on his third! I highly recommend this book.”-R David MacNeil
